A Challenge for the Pope: Seize the Chance for Religious ‘Renewal’

During his May 2014 visit to the Holy Land, Christianity’s top man was (presumably) prevented from bearing witness to the human suffering in Gaza. Since then Israel has launched yet another murderous assault slaughtering civilians, including children, on a massive scale and afterwards obstructing humanitarian aid and re-construction.

Seeking justice is counter-productive, US tells terrorised Palestinians

You could not make it up. “The one who needs to fear the International Criminal Court in The Hague is the Palestinian Authority, which has a unity government with Hamas, a terror organization like [the Islamic State group] which commits war crimes.” So says Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Christian priests who support the regime that trashes Bethlehem

Perpetuating Christmas misery… Christian priests who support the regime that trashes Bethlehem When I criticised one of the 12 MPs who recently voted against Palestinian statehood, I found myself immediately under attack in the press from a local churchman for my “anti-Israel outburst”.

Which way will UK Parliament jump on Palestinian recognition?

Palestine’s Last Chance

Is this Palestine’s last chance? Ever since I began taking an interest in the Palestinians’ struggle – nearly ten years ago – those brave people have been cursed with rubbish leadership that has taken them steadily backwards instead of forwards… leadership that studiously ignores Palestine’s friends outside, fails its people inside and allows its territory […]

The Gaza Medical Aid Scandal

The Gaza medical aid scandal: Suffer, little children…. What do our clueless politicians care?

Free Palestine? First we must free ourselves from the Enemy Within

Western leaders ‘nobble’ the International Criminal Court Free Palestine? First we must free ourselves from the Enemy Within Was anyone surprised to hear that the International Criminal Court is under pressure not to investigate Israel’s war crimes in Gaza?

Freedom to live ordinary lives…

Freedom to live ordinary lives… as per the 2005 promises. That’s all the Gazans want I have just received a very disappointing reply from my true-blue Tory MP to pleas for real government action over the slaughter in Gaza.

Gaza: “Raw power is killing those who struggle for justice”

Whatever happened to the US-Quartet Agreement , signed by Israel, ‘to give the Palestinian people freedom to move, to trade, to live ordinary lives’?

When […]

Palestinians claim UN protection and prepare lawsuits

Palestinians claim UN protection and prepare lawsuits …while the international community gives Israel all the elbow-room it needs to crush Gaza and its nuisance inhabitants permanently As Gaza and its lovely people were being blown to smithereens by Israel’s state-of-the-art weaponry, paid for by the grotesquely unlovely US administration, I put what I thought was […]
