I used to have a dream ....

I wake up practically every morning in a daze ... with an overwhelming feeling of foreboding, knowing that Israel's evil and unconscionable little war has no end in sight because no one country, international organisation or world body is willing to find the political courage to stand up to injustice (first step) and create a truly unifying and peaceful, new world order (second step).

And yet the reality of that is now slowly rising from the ashes of Gaza and the tragic sacrifice of the Palestinian people at the hands of Israeli fascists. Just read some of today's opinion pieces at the Jordan Times; and this article in Counterpunch as a bleak reminder of what is actually going on, and you have to ask yourself is there ever going to be a glimmer of hope?

There are some tough questions to answer ... now is the time to face them, if not for me then for my beloved children ... and yours.

PS There is one exception to the above first paragraph and that is .... Mr John Ging, head of the UN Relief and Works Agency in Gaza, Palestine ... a very courageous man indeed.

Just as I posted this, John Ging has reported on Al Jazeerah that his UN compound has just received a direct hit from Israeli bombs ... several people injured. He is on his way there to investigate.....

I guess that is a sign that he's been much too good a spokesperson for the truth in Gaza -- they probably wished that he was in the budiling when they hit it!
I agree, he's been grimly courageously persistent. May God protect him, the UNRWA workers and the people they serve. K
