Britain is sending an additional £20 million to help Gazans affected by the war on Israel by Hamas terrorists, says Rishi Sunak.
The British prime minister, after his trip to the Middle East, told parliament that a constant stream of aid – water, food, medicine, and fuel – is desperately needed.
Perhaps he has not heard the word “siege”. Let me remind him.
A siege is a military operation. Forces surround a town, cutting off all essential supplies, with the intention of compelling the surrender of those inside.
If, in school, he had paid a little more attention to history lessons, he might have known that the siege of Leningrad lasted 900 days and claimed the lives of 800,000 of the city’s inhabitants, mainly through cold and hunger. His own country, Great Britain, was one of the active participants in this deadly siege.
A clear case of “do as I say, not as I did”.
Does he really think that this money will go to the ordinary people of Gaza? Does he not see the terrorists standing with their pockets open, waiting for the cash to arrive.
How can the head of Great Britain be so foolish?
