POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN BY JONATHON SPYER IN THE GUARDIAN
And who created the situation in Gaza?
Good God, Israel has reduced 1.4 million people to desperation. All the world's humane-minded people were glad to see the people of Gaza breathe some fresh air and buy needed supplies for cooking and general living.
But all spokespeople for Israel see is the possibility of supplies for terror. Paranoid.
And the United States pressures poor Egypt on Israel's behalf to put an end to it, the U.S. having the leverage of its annual payments to Egypt.
I would remind readers that just the other day the Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi of Israel called for the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians.
According to that learned man the Palestinians are to be dumped in the Sinai Desert and that would be their state.
The irrationality of this outburst, one of many such by prominent Israelis, is in keeping with a state that espouses democracy yet refuses even to speak with democratically elected leaders of their neighbors.
Essentially, Israel is reducing and killing people in Gaza for the sin of voting.
