Press Statement issued by Communist Party of India (Marxist) on the horrific attack on Gaza
A news report from Gaza.
Israel’s siege of Gaza, largely unseen by the outside world because of Jerusalem’s refusal to allow humanitarian aid workers, reporters and photographers access to Gaza, rivals the most egregious crimes carried out at the height of apartheid by the South African regime. It comes close to the horrors visited on Sarajevo by the Bosnian Serbs. It has disturbing echoes of the Nazi ghettos of Lodz andWarsaw.
If anybody is still having any doubt that Israel (government and citizens) is a terrorist state par excellence then the latest events during the last two months alone in occupied Palestine should convince him of this fact. For the last two year the Israeli government has been tightening its deadly siege against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. The Israeli army had violated the latest seize-fire agreement with its military raids into and bombardment of the Strip. The latest closure of Gaza, the tightest ever, is starving its 1.5 million Palestinians, depriving them of drinking water, and necessary fuel to keep their daily operations going. The Israeli government is conducting a meditative mass murder operation against Gaza residents while the whole world is silently and complicity watching and the American media is distorting the facts.

Pragoti condemns the brutal attack on humanity in gaza by israel. We have carried three articles recently on the latest attack, which is still continuing. Here we present another three article on the inhuman attack.
Pragoti condemns the inhuman and criminal Israeli attack on Gaza. Nearly 200 people were reported massacred so far by Israeli warplanes bombing the besieged Gaza strip. Hundreds were reported injured so far. The victims include men, women, and children and the number of victims is expected to rise rapidly.
We carry here three articles giving more details of the situation.
We are now spectators of the latest -- and perhaps penultimate -- chapter of the 60 year old conflict between Israel and the Palestinian people. About the complexities of this tragic conflict billions of words have been pronounced, defending one side or the other.
Human Rights Defenders from Lebanon, the UK, Poland, Canada, Spain, Italy, and Australia are present in Gaza and are witnessing and documenting the current Israeli attacks on Gaza.
Please pick up the phone and call media outlets immediately to condemn the atrocities being committed in Gaza (using US taxpayer money and with international and Arab government acquiescence). Demonstrations are ongoing throughout the West Bank. Here is the press release for the one in Bethlehem (عربي / arabic at bottom).
