it's about time somebody registered a small gesture of displeasure at the renegade israeli government:
yesterday's headlines suggested that the palestinians would suffer reprisals -- including loss of US aid -- if it went so far as to ask the UN for full representation -- real penalties for voicing just grievances.
the flotilla attack, on the other hand, was declared legitimate by the UN in a report, which only chided the zionists disproportionate use of force. a truly cowardly report from a worthless and totally compromised institution, the UN. which nevertheless persists in promoting the pretense of fairness, as if it's the conscience of the world community.
at least perhaps, one at a time, individual nations will get some backbone and push back against the blatant hypocrisy of the US and its allies in its program to run the world on behalf of its corporate interests and "friends".
