The situation in the Middle East is dire at the moment. In a blatant act of war, the real terrorists, the Israeli government, have arrested the democractically elected Hamas government, obviously using them as bargaining chips to release an 18-year-old, Israeli soldier. The army has crossed into Gaza, once again ignoring any sort of sovreignty Palestinians have over their own land and they’ve launced a bloody offensive.
Their actions are acts of state terrorism and the scale is far beyond anything any Palestinian terrorist could dream of. This outpost of US imperialism is doing this in an attempt to secure US interests in the region. The existence of Israel is an act of war and flies in the face of anyone interested in real peace in the region. This latest offensive is just another case of Israel upping the ante to maintain its control and it should be resisted.
