US silent on Israeli terror

Issue No. 1810

SCARE STORIES about security weakness in the event of terrorist attacks regularly hit the headlines. But Bush and Blair stood by in silence while Israel launched a ruthless terrorist attack on the Palestinians on Monday of this week.

US-supplied F-16 fighters, which depend on British equipment, bombed a block of flats in Gaza, killing eight children. Israeli warplanes assassinated a Hamas leader, his wife and their three children.

They also murdered seven other Palestinians, including five more children, who were in neighbouring apartments.
