UK makes £20m aid promise to Gaza

The UK prime minister, Gordon Brown, said: "Too many innocent civilians, including hundreds of children, have been killed during the military offensive."

"This fragile ceasefire has got to be followed immediately - if it is to be sustainable - by humanitarian access, which we have asked for, by troop withdrawals, by an end to arms trafficking, by an opening-up of the crossings, by the end of rocket attacks."

Exactly what Hamas was asking for, before this devastation.

All this bloodshed could have been avoided, if the British Goverment had made this statement/demand a month earlier.

£20m aid promise will not diminish it's complicity in the pre-planned wholesale destruction of Gaza and its silence during it.

The world will not forget.
