"A genocide is taking place in Gaza"

In his latest, 14 Sept 2006, column for the New Statesman, John Pilger describes how the obvious becomes invisible in today's mainstream news agenda and such powerful denunciations of Israeli policy against the Palestinians and war criminals; Bush and Blair goes relatively unreported, e.g.

"A genocide is taking place in Gaza," warns Ilan Pappe, one of Israelís leading historians. "This morning... another three citizens of Gaza were killed and a whole family wounded. This is the morning reap; before the end of the day many more will be massacred."

"Nuremberg declared that aggressive war is the supreme international crime. They [Bush and Blair] should be tried along with Saddam Hussein," says Benjamin Ferencz, chief prosecutor of Nazi crimes at Nuremberg.
