Welcome to the Middle East Today

The Middle East has traditionally been important for the world economy. The Middle East situation today has an impact on all aspects of life in America and much of the world.

Only by understanding the motivations of the various factions in the Middle East can we hope to understand how to promote peace and national security for Middle Eastern nations, Europe, and the United States.

The Gaza Iron Cage

Recently a parliamentary delegates from the European Common Market visited Gaza passing through the Egyptian borders.

The objective of the mission was to examine and assess the degree of destruction caused by the Israeli invasion and the impact of the economic embargo imposed on 1.5 million Palestinians four years ago.

The delegates spend few days in Gaza talking to civilians as well as public officials. They have also visited different areas in Gaza and saw the range of destruction caused by the Israeli bombing. Upon their return to Britain, two British members of the delegation held a press conference in London. At the conference they both condemned the Israeli government for the war crimes it has committed against the Palestinians in Gaza. They recommended that the responsible Israeli politicians should be brought in front of the International Court of Justice and be tried for war crimes.

The two delegates have also called on the British government to let the law take its course, and not give Israeli politicians a diplomatic immunity while on British soil. Furthermore, they have also called for the lifting of the economic embargo imposed on the 1.5 million people of Gaza.

THE IRON CAGE IMPOSED BY ISRAEL ON GAZA IS A CRIMINAL ACT AND SHOULD BE LIFTED
