The burning to death of two Palestinian children over the past year by Israeli settlers is symptomatic of a larger violation of international law, established and maintained by Israel without limits:

"Israeli officials’ stance in reaction to Ali’s killing is contradictory. On the one hand, they condemn this particular settler attack against Palestinians. On the other, they encourage and support settlement expansion, and deny the fact that settlements are illegal and deprive Palestinians from exercising their right to self-determination.

In order for peace to be achieved in the region, Israel must dismantle the settlement enterprise, and act in accordance with international law. Palestinian children will continue to be killed and injured if the international community does not take immediate action to end the occupation."

Anything that can be done against this heinous barbaric government authorised crime is being done so in other words it will never stop with the boundaries getting pushed all the time. God help us all.

Aimee, these horrible murders are real. If you believe that the news reports from around the globe are fictional, then we would invite you to prove it.

Noted with disdain, disrespect, disgust for this government and with trepidation for the planet, as it's no-holds-barred. When you don't bring down a schoolyard bully early on, he gets stronger, bolder, nastier, more confident, and out of fear will find others who will protect him and defend his actions---allowing escalation of a terror regime. The only way to end that, is with enough courageous victims to band together and hit him from all sides with all they've got---and even then, it's not completely brought to an end, but at least the reign of terror is dramatically weakened. It must be thought of in the simplest of realities---the ongoing battle of good against evil---and the global news reports have made clear who is who, and what is what. Too bad for the victims within their own country, as usual. But, one must now think of the entire planet and choose sides. I've tried to see both sides, as I don't fully understand the very root of the ongoing battle. However, it's no longer an insular war, much of the world is now involved, like it or not.
