Sassoon's Revenge: Iraq is America's Gaza

By Allen L Roland | July 7, 2010

Iraq is America’s Gaza and, like Gaza, it cries for justice to a world which would rather ignore its plight as well as America and Great Britain’s role in this murderous error of judgment . Our karmic debt, like Israels with Gaza, is immeasurable…

Here’s the current state of Iraq according to SFGate.com but note these figures are very similar to occupied Gaza.

Health: Iraq‘s child mortality rate has increased by 150% since 1990, when U.N. sanctions were first imposed.

Education: By 2008, only 50% of primary school-age children were attending class, down from 80% in 2005, and approximately 1,500 children were known to be held in detention facilities.

Children: In 2007, there were 5 million Iraqi orphans~ according to government officials.

Refugees: More than two million Iraqis are refugees and almost three million internally displaced : 33% percent ( 500,000 people ) live as squatters in slum areas.

Water: 70% of Iraqis do not have access to potable water.

Jobs: Unemployment is as high as 50% officially, 70% unofficially.

Poverty: 43% of Iraqis live in abject poverty.

Sanitation: 80% of Iraqis do not have access to effective sanitation.

The US has not only destroyed a modern Arab Civilization in Iraq but has also created an inhuman concentration camp, similar to Gaza, in the process. Our karmic debt is immeasurable and it is written on the faces and hearts of millions of refugees who will not forget or forgive either America or our partners for this crime ~ Great Britain and, of course, our silent partner Israel with its own immeasurable karmic debt in Gaza.
