I'll answer your question, Mr. Cameron

British Prime Minister David Cameron, like our PM a cheerleader for Israel, posed a rhetorical question this week: how would those criticizing Israel’s actions expect their own government to react if hundreds of rockets were raining down on their country's cities?

Well, Mr. Cameron, if hundreds of rockets were raining down on Canadian cities because our government had in effect imprisoned 1.8 million people, one million of them refugees denied their moral and legal rights to return to their homes solely because of their race and religion, I would make it very clear what I expected my government to do—END THE IMPRISONMENT. I decidedly would not tell it to invade the prison and slaughter hundreds of the inmates including children. Sometimes, sir, the best answer is the most obvious one.

  1. Well put, Bill. What we're witnessing is just another step in the incremental reduction of Gaza intended to transform it into a wasteland. Israel claims it's out to get Hamas but when its air force takes out the water and sewage plants in advance of the invasion, the focus is on the Palestinian civilians, not Hamas.
