FUNERAL REFUSAL FOR LONDON BRIDGE ATTACKERS/VIOLATION
OF RELIGIOUS AND HUMAN VALUES
”AN EYE FOR AN EYE ONLY ENDS UP MAKING THE
WHOLE WORLD BLIND”
QUOTE MAHATMA GANDHI
SHAME ON YOU!
No, I don’t mean the three London Bridge Attackers, who
recently have made at least 7 deadly victims [and now perhaps more].
Because that need not to be stated:
Any terrorist attack [a military attack on civilians, with a political purpose]
is horrific, anti human and an utter violation of human values.
No, SHAME ON YOU! is directed against the attitude of Islamic
religious leaders towards the perpetrators of the London Bridge Attacks,
for refusing to bury them.

Respect for human rights is measured in deeds, not words. Ordinary people, from the homeless in Hungary, to black and Arab teenagers constantly stopped by the police in France, to Syrian asylum seekers in Greece, are paying the price for the lack of robust rights enforcement.
Judith Sunderland, senior Europe and Central Asia researcher
(Brussels) – European Union (EU) leaders in 2013 acknowledged problems of rising intolerance and persistent human rights violations across the EU, but failed to take concerted action, Human Rights Watch said today in its World Report 2014. Human Rights Watch documented EU-level developments in migration and asylum, discrimination and intolerance, and counterterrorism, highlighting events in 11 member states, including a new member, Croatia.
REFLECTIONS ON SOME ASPECTS OF THE POLITICAL-MILITARY CAREER OF THE ISRAELI
PRIME MINISTER SHARON
Undoubtedly you are being informed of the recenty started discussion by the Western media and polticians, about the real or alleged contribution of the Israeli prime-minister Sharon to peace in the Middle-East-conflict.
Immediate cause is the execution of the Gaza-disengagement-plan last year, by which the Gaza-settlements were evacuated, like four settlements on the Westbank.
In the underlying article I’ll try to emphasize on the fact, that according to my opinion, either the Gaza-disengagement-plan, or any other political and military measure of Sharon has contributed in any respect on a serious and just peace in the Middle East.
Further I’ll pay special attention to another very relevant aspect of the political-military carreer of Sharon, which is threatened to be greatly ignored in the discussion about his real or alleged peace-contribution, namely the human rights violations and war-crimes, for which he was responsible during his political and military career
I think it is of utmost importance, that those human rights violations and war-crimes, which testify of the lack of respect for the most elementary human rights, are not forgotten

It’s a shame that Sharon has gone to his grave without facing justice for his role in Sabra and Shatilla and other abuses. . His passing is another grim reminder that years of virtual impunity for rights abuses have done nothing to bring Israeli-Palestinian peace any closer.
Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East and North Africa director
(Jerusalem) – Ariel Sharon died without facing justice for his role in the massacres of hundreds and perhaps thousands of civilians by Lebanese militias in the Sabra and Shatilla refugee camps in Lebanon in 1982. The killings Continue reading
