A slaughter that deserves to be called so
Watching al-Jazeera English. Apparently a mosque, a university, and the interior ministry was among the latest targets of Israeli bombings in Gaza. It was refreshing to hear Chris Davies, a british member of the European Parlament (for the Liberal Democrats i believe, but I'm not sure) condemning the Israeli slaughtering of people in Gaza. Unfortunately, by official European standards this makes Davies look like an extremist. His outspoken criticism is in sharp contrast to the patethic offical response from the European Union and its member states, not to mention the disgusting US description of the targets (among them a large number of young policemen that were hit during an outdoor graduation ceremony in a police compound) as "nothing but thugs"!
