World doesn't care less about Gaza suffering

THE world doesn't seem to give a damn about the pain of the unfortunate people of Gaza.

The Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, should be charged with war crimes and crimes against humanity. What makes it all the more shocking is that the behaviour of Mr Netanyahu's bellicose, right-wing government has not been condemned by US President Barack Obama or by Britain.

There is no condemnation from the US, or from Europe. Ban Ki-moon is less than useless. The UN is merely a talking shop devoid of morality.

I have no difficulty in understanding Hamas. They are fighting for rights for their people. Gaza is an open-air prison.

How many children have been killed in Gaza? Will the carnage ever end? Will the blockade ever end? Will the people ever have a life of dignity and self-respect?
