On three things the world stands: on justice, on truth, and on peace.
When a child goes to bed hungry, when she wakes up hungry and goes to school hungry, it is inexcusable.
Inexcusable when due to poverty - and Gaza's slums are as poor as they come. I patrolled them in full armor keeping the locals down.
Inexcusable when due to unemployment - and most of Gaza is out of work.
(yet the excuses keep coming)
But it is an inhumane, criminal travesty when the main source of a child's hunger is the Western world blocking food from getting to him.
Israel and Egypt are the ones operating the blockade - but if Western leaders seriously want to end it tomorrow, it will end tomorrow. The Western starvation of Gaza is not just a years-long outrage; it turns the West's dubious claim to moral authority into a laughingstock, and gravely undermines international trust.
Enough is enough.
FAST FOR GAZA ONCE A MONTH UNTIL THE BLOCKADE ENDS.
