The barrage of terror being inflicted on the Palestinian people in Gaza at the hands of the Israelites, brings fresh memories of how the late Palestinian Leader Yasser Arafat resisted this same terror. You may imagine how unfair this world governing body of UN behaves! Instead of condemning and initiating severe sanctions against the aggressor, even after it destroys several buildings and installations owned by the UN in Gaza, it supports and without shame, the atrocities being inflicted on the civilian populations of Palestine by Israel army. If you compare with the same principle being exhibited by UN on Russia, you will realize that, it is better off not belonging to UN. I urge Africa and the Eastern world to instead, support the BRICS body for our future revitalization of principled world body. You may wonder, with the full backing of the US, the Israeli military is carrying out atrocities against a civilian population on a daily basis. Israeli war planes, tanks and artillery have laid waste to buildings and vital infrastructure in one of the most densely populated urban areas on the globe with complete disregard for civilian lives. Even the current assembly being attended by African Leaders in the US, it will shamelessly deliver toothless speeches without any tangible results benefiting human kind, with the absence of leaders of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, who will call a spade, a spade not a gardening tool. The Israeli military’s brutal operations undoubtedly constitute war crimes for which the Obama administration and its allies also bear a central responsibility. The shamelessly leaders supporting these atrocities should be condemned in no uncertain terms, as being the actual aggressors.
