"Virtue gives birth to tranquility, tranquility to leisure, leisure to disorder, disorder to ruin… and similarly from ruin, order is born, from order virtue, from virtue, glory and good fortune." -- Niccolò Machiavelli

Israel is starving Gaza.

Children “are going without food for days, as aid convoys are increasingly denied permits to enter,” reported the BBC on 10 February.

The United Nations estimates that nearly one in every 10 Palestinian children in Gaza under 5 years old is now acutely malnourished.

Day 130 of the ongoing genocide: Total killed 28340 (+some 7,000 under the rubble to be added) and injured 67984. 72% are women and children. This also does not count the thousands dead from lack of food, clean water, medicine and from infectious diseases and cold exposure. Desperate situation for over 2 million people in Gaza strip. Meanwhile as you expect, the news is mixed. Some groups speaking out and acting to end the genocide while others work to accelerate it.

Over recent months, the former Pink Floyd member has been in the news for his comments on the conflict in Palestine and accusations of anti-Semitism and rightly repeatedly denied all accusations of anti-Semitism and explained that his disdain is towards Israel, not Judaism. He also accused Israel of “abusing the term anti-Semitism to intimidate people like me into silence”.

China has backed the right of the Palestinian people to use armed force to combat Israel's occupation of their land, calling it an "an inalienable right well founded in international law".

The comments on Thursday were made by the Chinese ambassador to the UN, Zhang Jun, during the fourth day of public hearings held by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague, Netherlands.

Israel’s Minister for the Advancement of Women, May Golan, has yet again displayed disregard for Palestinian life by expressing pride in the “ruins” of the besieged Gaza Strip, adding that every Palestinian baby will in future, “tell their grandchildren what the Jews did.”

“I am personally proud of the ruins of Gaza,” Golan said in a speech in the Israeli parliament (Knesset) on Wednesday. 

“And that every baby, even 80 years from now, will tell their grandchildren what the Jews did…,” she added.
