'World backs Lebanon offensive'
from the BBC:
'Israel says diplomats' failure to call for a halt to its Lebanon offensive at the Middle East summit in Rome has given it the green light to continue.'
what can we do about this, as an individual, and as a poet I am not represented by the government of the country in which I live. I live here because i love my family and they are here, i love a great deal of what the UK is, but this government does not represent the few remaining individual voices remaining who are prepared to speak. as an individual, I do not support this or any war going on in the world, peace is made through peace, not war. and war has never led to peace. at best it leads to the burying of grudges which will eventually resurface, and that is what is happening over and over again now, these are old wars, and new spin will not change old grudges. if we want peace, we must be stronger than war, it is harder to just stop, and yet it is as easy as that.
my prayers to all on any side, not for your success at war, but for peace.
