The situation in Gaza is becoming worse. The death toll has risen to over 100, and to think, all of this is being done to avenge the murder of three teenagers. The Israeli military has stated that it had attacked 108 targets since midnight. Twelve rockets had been fired at Israel, seven of them intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system. Israel says its targets in Operation Protective Edge have been militant fighters and facilities including rocket launchers, weapons stores, tunnels and command centers.

First of all why is the UNO quiet? And secondly, is an Israeli life worth 10, 40, 100 Palestinian lives? When will the Kashmir and Palestine issues be resolved?

The United States of America, who is the ‘Big Brother’ and Gullu Butt all rolled into one, should take a stance against Israel. But how can it, when the world’s wealth is held in the hands of American Israelis. I believe that instead of insulting them, we Muslims should unite and resolve these issues. I refuse to believe that the oil rich Muslim countries cannot do anything.
