Click on Pic to enlarge.
here are the 132 Children killed in Gaza by Israel's Operation Protective Edge.
More details here.:- http://bit.ly/1yYwLy9
Finding it increasingly hard to quell my rage. It is not healthy. Who will bury the children when their parents are already dead and there is nobody to bury them. Who will kill the sniper that kills those children of the parents that are already dead? Who is goin to mourn them? I will. Who will forgive? Not me. I have so much to say, but nobody seem to be listening. It is beginning to really is anybody listening. This pain is really starting to hurt.
I guess I need to take a deep, deep breath and then continue to keep pushing.

" Every walk to the woods is a religious right, every bath in the stream is a saving ordinance. Communion service is at all hours, and the bread and the wine are from the heart and marrow of Mother Earth. There are no heretics in Natures church, all are communicants. The beauty of natural religion is that you have it all the time; you do not have to seek it afar off in myths and legends; in catacombs, in garbled texts; in miracles of dead saints or wine-bibbing friars. It is of today; it is now and here; it is everywhere."
- John Burroughs :- American naturalist, reprinted from essays in Naturalism 1920

A weeklong bombing campaign by Israel has pushed Gaza's biggest hospital to the brink - beds filled with the critically injured, the wails of relatives filling the air and supplies running short. Because of Israels military campaign the civilian death toll is rising. In many cases no warning, as peoples homes destroyed, innocents killed. A sea of bodies children killed whilst sleeping in their beds. If this happened to you, would you not resist, defend yourself?
In Israels case in open violation of international law, carry on their mission to destroy, business as usual as they blame victims.
Last night, Israel launched a ground invasion of Gaza. At the time of writing 250 Palestinians have been killed, many of them women and children.
We need to tell our government to stop this atrocity now, join the demo tomorrow, and spread the word to anyone you know that enough is enough. Thousands will be marching from Downing Street to the Israeli Embassy, in a demonstration organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Friends of Al-Asqa, CND, The British Muslim initiative, Stop the War Coalition, Palestine Forum in Britan and the Muslim Association of Britain. It is also supported by an unprecedented alliance of faith organisations, Trade Unions, civil society and Peace organisations.
Tell your M.P to act now, my own Mark Williams M.P for Ceredigion has already written to me expressing his condemnation of the collective punishment of the Palestinian people.http://act.palestinecampaign.org/lobby/crisisaction/,
The media must be forced to tell the truth about what is happening in Gaza, even though over 5,000 people protested outside the BBC HQ earlier this week their coverage of the ground invasion has been business as usual. We must keep up the pressure, and confront the BBC's bias. Israels siege and occupation of Gaza must end. Acoss the world people want justice, peace and freedom for the Palestinians.

Sometimes just opening your eyes in the morning is the most painful thing you could ever do,
but from our hearts dark secrets off the soul have to be released,
even when the sun shines, their is a realisation that somewhere outside,
their are thousands suffering constantly more than we can ever realise.
People constantly tired because their hopes daily are taken away with tyranny,
with weary hands some of us reach for pen,
because bad behaviour often makes us tired of waiting,
so now is the time to get rid of greed and oppression,
to awaken thoughts of gladness, to blossom fragility,
the lack of sympathy and empathy that governs our lands.
I'm tired of waiting, for people to awake,
but if your listening world,
I'm not giving up yet,
so will hang around now
wait for some change.

Noam Chomsky, John Pilger and Ken Loach are among more than 40,000 signatories who have signed an open letter to the B.B.C calling on its journalists to reflect the reality of Gazas occupation while reporting on Israels current assault.
MPs have also signed the letter which will be delivered to the B.B.C today (15 July) during a protest outside its Portland Place, London headquarters.
Please keep signing and sharing this
A lot of people are not very familiar with doing online complaints to the BBC. Really quite simple, and quite effective, for those unable to get to demonstrations that the BBC does not deem important to cover.
They have a statutory duty to reply to complaints to protect the so called independence of the BBC. Sometimes watching the BBC news I have to awake myself up from the utter pointless of it all. Fawning excuses for News about Royal family, minus their excesses. They used to say it had a left wing bias, I only see a right wing drift. If we don't complain nothing will change.
( I have used below the Today programme as an example.
