Keir Starmer and Rishi Sunak said Israel had the right to do this to Gaza’s children. What are they doing to yours?

Starved to death: the leaders of both the Labour and Conservative parties in the UK have said that Israel had the right to starve Yazan to death, even though it is a war crime. And what about children here in the UK?

Remember Yazan, the Gazan child who was malnourished and starving, but who This Site reported had managed to receive some food from aid drops? Dead now.

It wasn’t enough. Israel’s stranglehold on road routes into Gaza, coupled with its mass murder of anybody trying to pick up food from aid drops that do get in (by air or road), means famine is gripping the Palestinian enclave.

It is the latest stage of Israel’s planned genocide that was launched in October last year – supported by Western politicians including UK prime minister Rishi Sunak and Opposition leader Keir Starmer.

So this is as much on their heads as it is on that of Benjamin Netanyahu:

Alongside Yazan, at least 15 children are said to have died in a single hospital in northern Gaza, with another death reported in Rafah.

Strangely, BBC reporting – like that of most (if not all) of the UK’s mass media – fails to mention that this has been caused deliberately by the Israeli government and military:

Who’s next for the charnel house? This girl, perhaps?

Meanwhile in the UK, Waitrose sells you food grown on stolen Palestinian land:

I am reminded once again of the late, great Tony Benn, who said, “The way governments treat refugees is the way they would treat the rest of us if they could get away with it.”

Yazan’s death is an example of the way the UK government – and opposition – treats refugees, because both Rishi Sunak and Keir Starmer support Israel’s policy of starvation.

You may be shocked to learn what is happening to children here in the UK.

    Without being over dramatic (I’m not sure that’s even possible) this feels ‘final’ It feels like Israel is seeking to end the thought of a Palestinian State and the Palestinian people with it. Every effort is being put into stretching out this conflict. Israel knows that, despite Biden being a self-declared Zionist, he has no fully lost patience with Netanyahu and the other extremists in government in Israel. For a US government to have reached this stage would have been unimaginable a year ago. In time even the US will have to concede they can no longer resupply arms to Israel without being considered complicit in war crimes themselves. If Israel successfully stretch this out to Trump taking power (as I feel he might now – Biden is a poor opponent) he will back them to the hilt and will not hesitate to supply any weapons and materiel they need. At the same time he will abandon the Ukrainians.

    This feels almost ‘apocalyptic’ The ‘Four Horsemen’ are riding and this is genuinely an existential crisis for the Palestinian People. The world can weakly look on or it can do what it is supposed to do and step in..
