Palestine vs Israel

Current Affairs

It’s on the news almost everyday yet so little is being done about it. Although the situation in Palestine is not a new one, it has escalated dramatically to the extent that it is almost impossible to believe that Israel has any support. This is no longer a conflict, this is now a war crime, a humanitarian crisis. Any supporters of Israel’s acts of violence, sadistic cruelty and murder are as complicit in these war crimes as the soldiers themselves. Any conflict which involves the slaughtering of children is wrong and should be put to an end as soon as possible, but what makes this so much worse is that Palestinians are vulnerable; they have no army, no high tec weaponry and Israel is very aware of this, yet continue to slaughter civilians. Families are given no warning if their areas are to be bombed. Playgrounds have been bombed. Hospitals are being targeted. There is no justification for this level of violence.
“It’s not about religion, it’s about humanity.”
If the resolution is so simple, why is it so hard for both sides to reach it?
