Manx Residents In Support Of Gaza
We do not support the needless and mass shelling of civilians in Gaza!
Despite widespread international condemnation for its policy of violent repression against the Palestinian people, the Israeli government appears impervious to moral appeals from world leaders. Israel have been shelling UN buildings and committing other war crimes, many of which have been filmed and documented by international journalists and UN officials, we want to say the people of the isle of man do not support what is happening now in Gaza. we, the citizens of a Western democracy, aren't going to look passively at the Israeli crimes of war. In a globalised world, our passivity as citizens of the world in the face of such inhumanity will stain all of us.
Ordinary citizens can always play an important role in fostering the growth of such a non-violent movement within civil society. It is in this spirit that we call for Manx residents to sign this petition to show the people of Gaza that we do not support what is happening to them. Sometimes moral support is all we can offer but means so much to the men women and children going through horrific situations over which they have no control.
As with apartheid South Africa, urgent international condemnation is now required to help stop the massacres perpetrated against the Palestinian people.
Along with entire towns in Ireland boycotting Israeli produce and tens of thousands of people protesting in London and Dublin, we, the residents of the isle of man, are also against Israel's actions.
