GAZA UPDATE: MWA Director, Aishah Schwartz Echos Baroness Jennifer Tonge, "What are we doing to these people?"
JANUARY 21, 2010 - Recently a large delegation of western lawmakers went to visit Gaza on the anniversary of the Israeli onslaught code-named "Operation Cast Lead". They have now returned, and have given a special press conference showing and explaining what they saw. Press TV covered this press conference and this is the report by Fareena Alam, Press TV London.
"The international community fails to take any action against Israel so the situation continues. What are we doing to these people? and I repeat what time bomb are we creating in Gaza for the future?" Baroness Jennifer Tonge, House of Lords
"The only way in which anything will happen is if the average Israeli feels the effect of economic sanctions in their pocket and then puts pressure on their own government to take action. The Israeli government seems to be compeletely impervious, deaf, to the pleas of the international community, and only some kind of economic action will have any effect, so we are very keen for the British government to go further than they have so far, and suspend the EU Israel trade agreement," stated Sir Gerald Kaufman of the House of Lords.
