"We condemn in the strongest terms the rocket fire from Gaza by terrorists into southern Israel in recent days, which has dramatically and dangerously escalated in the past day."
"We call on those responsible to take immediate action to stop these cowardly acts. We regret the loss of life and injuries, and we call on both sides to make every effort to restore calm."
America's scurrilous UN envoy Susan Rice also "thoroughly condemn(ed) terrorist rocket fire from Gaza into southern Israeli towns & cities and call(ed) on both sides to restore calm." Obama so far said nothing.
Israel initiated violence. Palestinians responded defensively. Washington and Israel call self-defense terrorism. On March 11, Max Blumenthal asked if Obama green-lighted Netanyahu's attacks in return for delaying action on Iran until America's ready.
As a result, Israel's killing machine rages out of control in day four. International law prohibits extrajudicial and indiscriminate killing. The Al Mezan Center for Human Rights said it reflects Israel's "disregard for its moral and legal obligations." .......... M O R E: by Stephen Lendman http://www.indymedia.org/de/2012/03/955474.shtml
