Subject: Fw: Medieval siege of 1.4 million souls in Gaza


To our political leaders and members of parliament:


Thanks to our government's policies, together with those of the US and EU, in subservience to Israeli diktats, millions of innocent Palestinian men women and children are being subjected to starvation and denial of the most basic elemental requirements for health care and survival. As we saw on the CBC report, by Adrienne Arsenault, yesterday May, 7, on Newsworld report, patients are unable to receive the medicines they need and the healthcare they requrie. These are war crimes committed by Israel, in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention. We call on our government not to allow Canada's good name to be besmirched in this atrocity or to be  complicit in allowing this tragedy and slow murder of Palestinian peolpe, to continue. The report below from Gaza confirms this ongoing calamity.


We appeal to all those who claim to have elements of humanity to act now to bring this tragedy to an end.
