Israel’s Foreign Minister, Tzipi Livni, and Israel’s Minister for Terrorism against the Palestinians, Ehud Barak, have warned Hamas that they would be responsible for any ‘consequences’ of a planned march along the Gaza border. The ‘Jerusalem Post’ says, “The main fear is that residents of the Strip will force their way through the crossings and that IDF attempts to contain the crowd will result in massive casualties.”
As usual, the Israelis are blaming the people of Palestine for deaths that Israelis will inflict on the Palestinian people. The world should be quite clear about who would be responsible if there are massive casualties in such an event. There was no mass casualties when the Gazans broke free into Egypt last month so why should there be massive casualties if they break free into Israel this month? It will be the Israeli police and Israeli Defence Forces that are squeezing the triggers, not anyone else.
And the reason the Palestinians of the Gaza would take such desperate action is because the Israelis have forced them into this situation in the first place by cutting off supplies of food and fuel to the Gaza. These cuts have led to Palestinians dying for lack of suitable medical treatments and life-saving power to medical equipment. Over a hundred Gazan patients have died for want of treatment since the Israelis sealed off the crossing points preventing sick Palestinians from getting treatment.
If any Palestinian is killed for want of food or fuel then the only people responsible for such deaths will be the right-wing Zionist government of Israel and the notorious Israeli terrorist leader Ehud Barak and the warmongering thugs that back him.
The peoples of the world should voice their solidarity for the Palestinian people. There is a certain irony in the fact that the only people that are directly supporting the Palestinian people apart from the UN are the growing band of peace-loving Israelis. They too need the support of the people of the world.
