British MP: Bush supports Israeli murder of Palestinians
Former British secretary MP Clare Short has described American president George Bush as a “war criminal” who should stand trial before an international court.
The MP told Qatari Daily “Al-Arab” that Bush was responsible for what is happening in Gaza Strip, Lebanon and Iraq.
She noted that as soon as Bush ended his visit to the Palestinian lands the IOF troops started their land, sea and air shelling of the Gaza Strip inflicting tens of casualties in lines of the Palestinians.
She predicted that Israel would continue in its escalation against the Palestinian people in the Strip and in the West Bank.
The MP criticized the American administration for remaining tightlipped in face of Israel”s “mass punishment” against the Palestinians especially the closure of all crossings surrounding the Strip and cutting power and fuel supplies.
