The weeping Palestinian Father.

Palestinians carry the body of Mohammed Abu Khudair during his funeral in Shuafat“Today I saw a picture of a weeping Palestinian man holding a plastic carrier bag of meat. It was his son. He’d been shredded (the hospital’s word) by an Israeli missile attack – apparently using their fab new weapon, flechette bombs. You probably know what those are – hundreds of small steel darts packed around explosive which tear the flesh off humans. The boy was Mohammed Khalaf al-Nawasra. He was 4 years old”.

    Excellent letter/article… I have just tied myself in knots with a response, then deleted it.

    Despicable. According to former president Jimmy Carter, Israel is guilty of war crimes in Gaza.

    Gerard, I’m with you and Helvi, I almost scream at the TV with the inhumanity of it. I also get sick of the Israeli propaganda machine and the way our press gives them unfetterred access.
