No sane people can justify Israel's brutal attack on the civilians in Gaza

Reader comment on item: Solving the "Palestinian Problem" [with the No-State Solution]

Submitted by Sadia Masroor (India), Jan 9, 2009 at 11:07

The sane people of the world are aghast at the mute stance taken by major countries and the United Nations. Israel, USA, UK and their allies incessantly call for disarming nations fearing attacks on their civilians...but on the contrary it is these Superpowers that have carried & supported more bombings, killings & destruction than any weapon of mass destruction would have done( if it ever existed!), all in the pretext of "disarming" others! They call it an act of defense, when in fact its a wide campaign of terror against a whole population! How do we explain ourselves?

The USA and Israel, both, have carried senseless attacks on civilians fearing attacks by the leader/ regime of that country! CAN someone actually murder people just because of an intuition or fear, with no evidence to justify their fear? If this is so, then we Indians do get nightmares that USA will someday attack India's sovereignty and the US president will not think twice before ordering his army of mercenaries to kill our countrymen! Such a case, should my country too act just like America and Israel, and attack its population and destroy their nation in the name of defending the lives of Indians??? Will the United Nations be by our side as well, just like it is with the USA and Israel in their erroneous decision causing mayhem in current times?

As a matter of fact, India will never commit such acts of oppression against a civilian population. It is distressing to see the United Nations Organization failing to take a truthful stand for what it exactly was established for - To Promote & Protect Peace, Justice and Global human rights! Clearly, the purpose of UNO has strayed once again as it did earlier by its disastrous stance during the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. But we do hope the UNO will rise again, on its principles this time and when it does, the world will neither remain silent against oppression nor will it side with the oppressors. We do hope our message reaches the UN Secretary General, Mr.Ban Ki-moon and the Indian representative at the UNO.
