Israeli atrocities in Gaza

I'm no expert on Middle Eastern policy but today's actions by Israel are truly appalling. This is a tiny area oppressed and bullied by the Israeli government that is now facing an Israeli invasion and shoah (which can be translated as catastrophe or holocaust).

The Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni says that Israel should be able to defend itself, which is of course the right of any nation, but this is not defence this is unwarrented aggression.

Rupert Read has just posted the following on Facebook: "UK ought to call for suspension of EU trade agreement with Israel in response to israeli atrocity today in gaza"

It is the united mobilization of the working class of all countries, including Arab and Jewish workers, that holds the key to a genuinely democratic and progressive solution to the crisis in the Middle East. This must take the conscious form of a struggle against Zionism, imperialism and the Middle Eastern bourgeoisie for a socialist federation of the Middle East, as part of the world socialist revolution.
