  1. Israel, the Middle East gun-runner, complains about incitement!
    In three bloody weeks from December 27, 2008, during ‘operation cast lead’, white phosphorus and other weapons were used against the people of Gaza, killing 1400, the majority of whom were civilians including over 300 children, plus the destruction of schools, houses and public buildings. The Likud government of Israel that exports Uzi machine guns and other munitions to regimes worldwide, and imports billions of dollars of military equipment – (including cluster bombs, rocket & grenade launchers, surface to air missiles, F15/F16 strike aircraft, aerial bombers, Apache attack helicopters, Dolphin nuclear-armed submarines, armoured personnel carriers, unmanned drones, aerial vehicles and electronic warfare equipment from the US and Europe) – wants the world to believe that its blockade of the starved, bankrupt people of Gaza, is legal in order to prevent imaginary arms shipments to a besieged enclave of 1.6 million, mainly unemployed people who are desperate for food and medicines, not guns.

    This situation exists only by courtesy of the EU which continues its billions of dollars of bilateral trade with a non-European state under an Association Agreement, the existence of which is the key economic factor that keeps the Likud government in power – and the blockaded and bombed enclave of Gaza, under siege. The EU and the UN must take action. It is now more than 5 years that the world has stood silent.

  2. Any “warming trend” is probably because Assad is killing his own people pretty much within sight of Turkish soldiers and using his tanks to threaten those Turkish soldiers and the Syrian refugees behind them. (Given the size, equipment and proficiency of the Turkish army, this tells you all you need to know about Assad’s state of mind.)

    It might be a very opportune moment for Israel to behave rather better than Assad, but I’m not sure if they can manage this or if they will even see the need.
