Whilst EU and USA keep propping up Israel in the midst of on-going war crimes, new Bangladeshi government has continued on the line of sharply condemning the Israeli assault on the Gaza strip. Bangladesh has dubbed the aggression as a flagrant violation of human rights and international humanitarian laws.
Bangladesh sponsored a special Human Rights Council (HRC) on January 9, 2009, along with the OIC, Non-Aligned Movement and Arab groups, to discuss the developments in occupied Palestine. At the session the Bangladeshi ambassador at the U.N. in Geneva, Debapriya Bhattacharya, said that "These atrocities are mediaeval carnage in modern times", referring to the conduct of Israel.
Bhattacharya demanded that the parties immediately implement the resolution adopted by the U.N. Security Council. The Bangladeshi government has also called on Israel to stop its interference with deliveries of humanitarian supplies.
The purpose of this blog is to give commentary, news and other info on events, current and past.
This blog came about spontaneously (titled 'Gaza Peace n' Freedom') in the midst of the January 2009 Gaza Massacre, seeking to present links, photos and videos of a fraction of the multitude of protests occuring around the world with the objective of letting the people of Gaza know that they are not alone, letting the Israeli warmongers know that their crimes will not be forgotten.
