Israeli "state terror"

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, of turkey, described Israeli actions in Gaza as "savagery", "a crime-against humanity" and "state terror," and warned Israel that it will "reap what it sows".

It is difficult for Israel to swallow from an ally that was the first mainly Muslim country to recognise Israel.

A senior Israeli diplomat told the BBC "There is a great deal of disappointment that there has not been one word of sympathy from Turkey about the Israelis."

How long will it take the Israelis to resume normal lives?
Not long.

What about the Palestinians?
Years, if the Israeli allow them or decades otherwise.

Sir John Holmes, who visited Gaza, was shocked by the "the systematic nature of the destruction".

Israel killed more than 1,300 and injured 5,000. “Too many innocent civilians, including hundreds of children" as the UK prime minister described it.

"We toured the part of Jabaliya …. an area that must cover at least a square mile, there are no houses left - no mosques, no factories and no orchards. The entire neighbourhood has been devastated."

"It would take three to five years to rebuild even under normal conditions - never mind with the continued Israeli blockade which stops all but humanitarian basics entering the strip."

If Israel gave a damn about any one else then it would not have conducted this murderous one sided massacre or continue its inhumane blockade which stops all but humanitarian basics entering the strip.
