F16 jet swirl

    Newer Older

    It's appalling to think that F16 aircraft like this have just been used to massacre more than 1300 Palestinians in the Gaza strip in January 2009. This jet was at a show in the UK.

    As regards the bombing of Gaza, this statement from the Jewish organisation IJAN says it all:

    We write with grief and rage as we watch the horrifying Israeli air and ground attacks on Gaza. As Jews committed to ending Zionism, the founding ideology of Israel, and all forms of colonialism, we stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people, who continue to struggle in the face of these attacks, much as they have against more than 60 years of ethnic cleansing and racism. As Joseph Massad recently wrote, Gaza is in uprising against genocide, and is receiving today the same indifference from the capitals of the West that the rebels in the Warsaw Ghetto received in 1943.

    We stand with the hundreds of thousands who have taken the streets in solidarity with Gaza’s resistance. We stand with all those who struggle against racism, dispossession and genocide.
