Sick at heart

I am sick at heart that Israel is committing war crimes and the UK government and the leader of the opposition (such as he is) is backing them.

"Sick at heart" does not come close, just as it wouldn't come close to how I feel about the recent atrocities of Hamas.

No matter what Hamas did, I can't believe that a so-called civilized society is raining terror on ordinary people - half of whom are children - and expecting 1.1 million people to evacuate to avoid the onslaught.

I can't believe that in 2023 the world is standing by and letting this genocide happen.

If you want to help Gaza, and like me, you're dumbfounded as to what will help, a good start would be donating to a charity supporting people in Palestine.

Medical Aid for Palestinians is a long established and respectable UK charity that has been working in Gaza for many years. It has no connection with Hamas, or with violence of any kind.

Here is a link to their emergency appeal. 

And here is a list of other things you can do for Palestine and Israel right now.

And if you don't understand what it's all about, here is a short video explaining the history behind the decades-long conflict.
