The question of my headline was asked by an exasperated and quietly angry Ban Ki-moon, secretary general of the UN, during his diplomatic effort in the Middle East. Because Israel is doing virtually all of the killing I think it is more than reasonable to assume that the SG’s rhetorical question was addressed primarily to Israel’s leaders. The answer to it can be very simply stated.

Press TV has conducted an interview with Alberto Garcia Watson, political commentator from Beirut, about Palestinian resistance groups responding to a fresh series of Israeli air attacks by firing rockets into Israel as the Gaza death toll keeps rising.What follows is an approximate transcription of the interview.Press TV: First of all give us your assessment of this disproportionate use of force by the Israelis against the people of Gaza. And how many more children and women have to be killed? How many more schools and residential complexes have to be destroyed before the international community steps in to stop the attacks?Watson: Well yesterday last night the al-Wafa hospital in the Gaza Strip actually in the Gaza city was bombed even though there were eight international activists inside protecting those who were unable of moving out of the hospital.This just shows this is a proof of the callousness of the Israelis in their program of extermination of the Palestinians in Gaza. We just heard a couple of days ago a high general of the Israeli army saying that I wish I will wake up one morning and Gaza has disappeared from the map. This is the spirit of Israel. This is the way that Israel sees a possible solution to the conflict in Gaza. They are destroying hospitals, they are destroying schools, and they are killing not just Hamas leaders like they say in all the press, international press like I've been listening even this morning [that] Hamas leaders have been targeted. No it is not Hamas leaders being targeted. Everyone is targeted. If in a neighborhood it happens to be a leader of Hamas lives there, the whole neighborhood has to suffer. All buildings are knocked down and bombed down. We saw yesterday in Zeitoun which is a neighborhood in the outskirts of Gaza city how a building, a three storey building was bombed down. Thirty people were left without a home because it happened to be that a leader of the Islamic Jihad lived there. This is the way that they operate.In 2008 in Cast Lead operation, that is Zeitoun neighborhood, a family, the Samouni family, famous family was actually put into a building, 98 members of that family and it was bombed from the air, it was bombed from the sea and 49 casualties happened. I happened to be bringing some of these children for treatment back to Europe and we brought them back a year and a half ago and what was considered to be a war crime by the United Nations is not condemned. The whole world looks to the other side. We have been just so busy watching the World Cup and we have just left this massacre, this holocaust, this real holocaust because here we can really see what is going on and what is happening.
