Stop the war in Gaza

The never ending story. I made the painting based upon a photo in a newspaper when Israel armed forces made their aggressive attack on Lebanon summer 2006 and Qana July 30.

The conflicts in the Middle east have got a new page of shame. The war escalates through Israeli aggression across the Gaza boarder, and civilian palestinians are suffering. Political leaders around the world make statements like our own Foreign Minister: “We are extremely concerned about the precarious humanitarian situation in Gaza” , but The United States late Saturday blocked approval of a U.N. Security Council statement calling for an immediate cease-fire between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers.
The key to any solution can only be found in the Oval Office.

In the streets protests are taken place, and that reminds me of what we did many years ago when singing Pete Seeger´s song Where have all the flowers gone in this youTube video performed by Peter, Paul and Mary

Er forferdelig det som skjer, men vil det noen gang bli fred der nede. Unger blir jo oppdratt til å hate og vet ikke om noe annet.

Grusomt. Forferdelig. Tragisk. Jeg mottar sms'er, jeg tenner lys og prøver å vise min solidaritet. Hva mer kan jeg gjøre i skrivende stund? Vi håper på fred der nede.

Ufattelig trist!
Når man ser hvordan sivilbefolkningen og barn lider under denne evigvarende konflikten, så kan man undres om det noen gang blir fred i det området.....
Vold avler vold osv.
