Jewish Groups Condemn Gaza Collective Punishment

02-02-2008 19:17

There are many completely moral people, both inside and outside Israel, who view the blockade of Gaza as an absolutely immoral and wrong-headed action.

Their willingness to go public about their beliefs, and risk extreme shunning from within their own communities, is very courageous, and they should be encouraged to continue to stand their ground.

It keeps the international community's collective gaze focused upon the plight of these people, whose daily suffering is almost unimaginable to those who live comfortably in the West.

Humanitarian imperialism of The Independent

02-02-2008 12:48

The Independent, 31 January 2008
"The idea that any individual in any country should face execution for downloading information from the internet is as abhorrent as it is incomprehensible. That this should be happening in a nation whose government benefits from the military and financial support of Western countries, Britain included, should give us great pause for thought. Pervez Kabaksh, 23, is a student at an Afghan university and a journalist. He was arrested last year after downloading material about the role of women in Islamic societies. We can well imagine that the material was not flattering to, or particularly consonant with, some of the precepts of Islam."
