RE: Israel and the Gaza War by Palestinian journalist Daoud Kuttab
Good to see the clarion call letter "Israel and the Gaza War" by Palestinian journalist Daoud Kuttab. Surely the world has witnessed enough cruel crimes against humanity to realize the vital importance of respecting international humanitarian law.
This week a new banner "Peace Starts Here" commemorating UNRWA’s 60th anniversary has been unveiled. The banner will hang inside the UN building in New York and another, larger banner will adorn the outside of the General Assembly Building. http://www.un.org/unrwa/english.html
“The protracted exile of Palestine refugees and the dire conditions they endure, particularly in the occupied Palestinian territory, cannot be reconciled with state obligations under the UN charter...” UNRWA Commissioner General Karen AbuZayd http://www.jordantimes.com/index.php?news=20222
I very much hope that more and more Palestinians (including professional journalists) pick up the proverbial pen to help calmly explain the facts as well as reasonable and necessary steps we can all take to help bring a just and lasting end to the Israel/Palestine conflict.
