‘From bad to worse’

Nov 09,2014 - Last updated at Nov 09,2014

After 52 days of war in Gaza and killing of over 2,000 Palestinians, including 600 innocent children, Israeli atrocities and aggression still continue in occupied Palestinian lands. 

Illegal Israeli settlements, killing of unarmed, innocent civilians and the closure of Al Aqsa Mosque have become a big challenge for the conscience of our modern world.

Israel just announced 20 years imprisonment for stone-throwing children. Over 30 children were arrested after recent protests, some younger than 10.

Israel demolished several houses belonging to suspected activists and uses capital punishment as a war weapon.

The Israeli prime minister threatened to use further aggressive measures against protesters. Israel deployed several thousands of extra security personnel around Al Aqsa Mosque and tension is growing high.

The reality is that Israeli aggression and the silence of the UN, of the world in general, pose a big threat to the security of the entire region.

Jordan has recalled its ambassador to Israel after Israeli forces and rightwing Jewish activist stormed Al Aqsa Mosque and closed it.

Despite growing tensions, Israel’s barbaric use of force continues and things are going from bad to worse.
