Yesterday I posted the following Poem on my Facebook page and male no apology for repeating it here.

Throughout the World including Wales people are protesting about Israel's treatment of Gaza calling for UN intervention

Some people ask what about  the ( at least 40,000) members of the Yazidi sect, many of them women and children, who have taken refuge in nine locations on Mount Sinjar, a craggy, mile-high ridge identified in local legend as the final resting place of Noah's ark.?

Why aren't you protesting about their treatment
At least 130,000 more people, many from the Yazidi stronghold of Sinjar, have fled to Dohuk, in the Kurdish north, or to Irbil, where regional authorities have been struggling since June to deal with one of the biggest and most rapid refugee movements in decades.
Sinjar itself has been all but emptied of its 300,000 residents since jihadists stormed the city late on Saturday, but an estimated 25,000 people remain. "We are being told to convert or to lose our heads," said Khuldoon Atyas, who has stayed behind to guard his family's crops. "There is no one coming to help."
But the difference is that  as we are constantly  being told Israel is the only democracy in the region it is supported by both the UK and US and when it comes to an UN resolution the Government of both UK and USA refuse to condemn Israel even when it is clear their actions are wrong.

If we are protesting about Gaza we are not only condemning Israeli actions but our own Government. Who fail to defend the people of Gaza by taking action however small against what is largely becoming a rougue  state that thinks it has no responsibilities because  its "friends" will always back it up.

There are atrocities happening all over the world and that we fell powerless to stop but we are giving Israel the right to behave how they like and blocking any UN action to stop thier carnage.
I recently tried  to some up Gaza by comparing it to 
Israel's attitude seems to be that if someone in a pub threatens you at the bar. Demolish the entire pub.
We are allowing Israel to do this even supplying them with some of the equipment  and ordinary people are marching to say  stop now or you will lose your Friends forever. 

Read the above poem again and wipe your tears protest about Gaza do not forget about the Yazdidi though but remember our government supports the Israeli's responsible for the deaths of the Children of Gaza and as helpless as we may be they do not back the thugs who are attacking the people huddled on the mountains of Iraq all deserve our help.
