Maired Corrigan Maguire's words
· Western Leaders and mainstream media have come up with disingenuous statements repeating Israeli disinformation and blaming the Palestinian victims.
· Biased against Palestinians, these leaders and media outlets continue to tell the Israeli narrative.
· If Palestinians and Israelis, indeed the Middle East region are to be saved and to move toward peace, it is time that Israeli propaganda be shown for what it is – war propaganda.
· Israel has answered every occasion for dialogue with military attacks on Palestinian civilians.
· Israel has chosen land [grabs] and continues to annex Palestinian land, demolishing Palestinian homes.
· The war Israel is waging on Gaza is not about self-defense.
· The war Israel is waging is not about destroying Hamas; it is a war about complete control over a territory and a people and it is being conducted with complete disregard for human life.
· It is a war aimed at destroying the resilience of the Palestinian people whilst, all the time, illegally confiscating their land.

This brings to 549 the total death toll from 14 days of Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip. Over 3,000 Palestinians have also been injured in the onslaught. The majority of victims have been civilians--including women, children, and the elderly.
