I am an Irish Citizen living in Spain and I wish to send my condolonces and express my outrage and frustration to all those who are victims of Israeli brutality and genocide. I do appreciate that within Israel there are many voices being raised against Israeli government policy but unfortunately it falls on deaf ears. As for the EU, history will judge us for not doing anything and observing this awful human suffering as we did in the Yugoslav wars, and countless national and international conflicts over the last century. We can no longer say that we are not being informed!
