The following Public Statement was issued by Amnesty International on 23rd March 2005.
I like its lack of equivocation and its emphasis on law. I recall with anger that I wrote to my MP when we started bombing the poorest in Aghanistan. I said that the world's priority should be to insert a peace keeping force in Palestine composed of Scandinavian, South African troops etc given that UK troops were then compromised. A judicial response to 9/11 was the only lawful one. The support of the Security Council was neither here nor there. Instead, we have rained terror on the heads of countless innocent heads. All this has been done with the overwhelming support of MPs of the three main parties. They are complicit in these crimes against humanity and the peace (as per the Nuremberg rules).
The only bit which always makes me wince is "Occupation for 38 yrs". Many Palestinians and others do not see it like that of course.
