Palestine : "Constantly preparing for dawn, in the darkness of cellars lit by our enemies"?

category galway | rights, freedoms and repression | news report author Sunday December 09, 2007 15:25author by TD - Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign Report this post to the editors

The IPSC guilty of a "distorted sympathy" towards Palestine?

The Israelis are deepening the cellar further with the Weapon of Mass Starvation; following Israeli cutoffs, the UN World Food Program now reckons that; "Food imports into the Gaza Strip are only enough to meet 41 percent of demand". Against such an obscenity and pleading guilty to what Martin Amis terms a "distorted sympathy" towards the agony of Palestine,,2221615,00....html Galway IPSC, yesterday, took to the streets for seven hours to protest.

The Israelis are darkening the cellar further through fuel cutoffs resulting in Gaza's hospitals having to scale back health services and most petrol stations having to close . Several human rights groups have condemned this unconscionable collective punishment with United Nations Secretary-General, Ban ki-Moon bleating that Israel should reconsider such actions. Following the Israeli cabinet decision on 19th September 2007 declaring the Gaza Strip to be an "enemy entity," Gaza is being slowly bled to death with the debased imprimatur of the Israeli High Court and under the blind eye of the world; the court ruled last week that the decision to reduce fuel supplies to Gaza should remain and this policy poses no harm to the civilian population.

Besides the Indymedia title, to quote Palestinian national poet, Mahmoud Darwish, further: "The siege will last in order to convince us we must choose an enslavement that does no harm, in fullest liberty!".

I agreed with Martin Amis when he said that there should be a factory siren permanently going off in the west as a result of Muslim suicide bombings and that Muslims should be made to suffer as a result of the factory siren going off against these actions.
I didnt agree with him when he said it was not "not nothing" that Israel had suffered in the war against the Nazis and that people had not had a machine that would not have experienced "retaliatory urges" upon learning in August last year of the alleged plot to bomb transatlantic aircraft, in which,3,000 people could have died.
But I beleive its wrong for him to claim that the ISPC is distorting Sympathy at a debate at Manchester University.

I dont wan to offend either side of the argument but I have to have my say.

Not angry,

I' ve just read through your post above four times straight and I' ll be dammed if I can get any sense out of it. Im not surprised you're not angry as it's clear you're exist in some kind of alternate reality. The only thing i can get from your post is that you think Muslims should suffer.

I wouldn't like to meet you on a dark night if I happened to be eating a falafal and reciting the Koran at the time. This is something I do regularly and Im entitled to do it.

Achmad, you're entitled to do lots of things in Western Society.Wouldn't advise you though to start reciding the Christiian Bible somewhere in Saudi Aribia on a dark night.
