The Real Victims

Whatever your views or stand point on the Israeli/Palestinian war one should be mindful of whom the victims really are.   There will be no winners in this situation, it will not lead to a better life for either the Palestinian or Israeli people only more bitterness.  These bombings and rockets will only exacerbate the situation and lead to the radicalisation of a new generation of Muslim youths.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu goes as far as to say “It is a blight not only on the Middle East, but on the entire world – and particularly world leaders who have consistently failed the people of Palestine and Israel over the past 60 years.

We have a situation where injured people are trapped in their homes unable to get to a hospital.  Doctors cannot get to a hospital to work.  There is also no electricity or water.  The Palestinian people are told to leave their homes as they will be attacked, but where do these Palestinian people go to?

I sincerely hope that a peace deal can be agreed soon for the sake of both Israel and Palestine.
