WORLD EVENTS ONLY MAKE ME WANT TO CRY. (NEWS AND CONVERSATIONS)
Mid of Winter here. Been AWOL due to Flu from hell and unable to react to world events in any coherent manner. In fact world events of late only make me want to cry. FUNNY FLU.
Today's attack on the Jabaliya Elementary Girls School has been described as a possible war crime by the UN. The Israeli authorities, it said, had been told no less than 17 times that it was full of refugees, the last warning message delivered on 8.50 on Tuesday evening.
But, seven and half hours later, a series of shells smashed into the building, destroying two of the classrooms, killing 19 and injuring more than a hundred others. Pierre Krahenbuhl, the commissioner for UN agency for Palestinian refugees, described the killings as “a source of universal shame”. Investigations clearly showed, he maintained, that Israeli fire was to blame, condemning “in the strongest possible terms this serious violation of international law by Israeli forces.”
