Downing Street Protest Against Israel, Held Saturday, July 8

Londoners refusing to remain quiet in the face of Israeli war crimes and occupation. The protest is taking place on the second anniversary of the Israeli assault upon Gaza known as “Operation Protective Edge.” The 51-day attack, which began on July 8, 2014, resulted in the deaths of more than 2,100 Palestinians, including 448 children.

In the next video Chris Gunness, of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, discusses the Gaza blockade and its impact on the local population. Why, if Israel’s only concern is security, is the Jewish state imposing a blockade on Gaza exports?

Wounded, killed or left homeless–children of the 2014 conflict:

  1. “This must stop, and it must stop NOW!” Declarations like this and others ones in the video are common and they are on the right side of justice, but “it” doesn’t stop. The “elite” genuflectors to Zionism and its terroristic entity in the “holy” land simply brush off protests and continue their dastardly ways, enabling and actively funding and otherwise supporting genocide. Why?–because they can…with the same impunity enjoyed by the Zionist bastards persecuting and immiserating the hapless Palestinians. When will NOW become NOW?!

    The Chris Guness interview shows his passion and compassion for the Palestinians, but I’m reminded that I always lament that there isn’t a time context given. One must piece together bits of one’s own knowledge and the events ongoing and speculate “Well, Chris must be speaking today (2016)…or is the interview from late 2014…?” I think it important to know, and I plead for time context (e.g., each video clip should be identified by time and date in the first and last slides! (ideally, by the producer) and well as presentation of the searing visual context that provides proof of the Zionists’ inhumanity-cum-satanism!

  3. What I normally go by, Robert, is the upload date on YouTube. The upload date for the Chris Gunness video is July 8, 2016. Granted, that doesn’t mean the interview was conducted on that day, but my guess is that it probably was conducted fairly recently.

  4. Reblogged this on Tinthor's Blog and commented:
    On Saturday, June 9, 2016, a demonstration against Israel was held in London at Downing Street. Two yers before, Israeli operation Protective Edge began on June 8, 2014. The people of London were fed up with lies told by their British government about Israel which “has a right to defend itself.” Yes indeed, it’s only right that the monstrous and cruel war crimes of Israel are exposed…..
