Israeli's like to bang on about how small and fragile Israel is - one factoid oft mentioned is that it is a rifle shot across (from the occupied west bank to the meditterranean).
Well, how do they think people in Gaza feel? its narrower still, and blockaded and bombed.
The continuing hypocrisy of Israel's use of the history of the holocaust as a blanket excuse for perpetrating current war crimes (300 people so far in response to 1) is really astounding.
I don't like petitions, but this one

Why are western "leaders" so muted in their condemnation?
