On Saturday afternoon, Cork Alliance Against War held a protest against the war in Lebanon.
After reading this story about the Kudsi family I have a lot more sympathy for them. Their house was bombed early one morning and most of the household was wiped out.
“In the early hours of the next morning, as Rayan, 30, slept near her daughters Alice, 6, and Celine, 3, an Israeli warplane dropped two one-ton bombs on their house in Hoshe, a village south of Tyre.
Rayan, her girls and her 78-year-old grandmother Um Zuheir were killed, probably when the first bomb struck the villa’s concrete roof just after 4.30am. The family’s tenants, a United Nations official from Ghana and his wife, also died.”
Branedy says it better than I could. Israel really has lost the war.

Thanks Ali for commenting, it makes the story that much more personal, I’m sorry for your loss.
stop the killing, stop the sneaky attacks on the people, fight the army as men, stop using babies as shields. learn to love the children more than killing other people. stop blaming everyone else, start putting into your own community, stop whining when there is retaliation, try peace for once, cowardly terror doesn’t win wars, immigrate somewhere else, stop coveting, stop stealing, killing hurts people, stop the killing
[…] The point of this post and my interest in winter fruits is the origin of said produce. They come from Palestine. We hear so much bad news from that part of the world so something as mundane as strawberries is a reminder that life goes on no matter what. […]
Rest in peace Rayan , Alice CEline and EM Zuheir we will never forget you , we promise
