India Must Take 'Clear Stand' on Gaza Issue: Oppn

Opposition members in Lok Sabha today made a strong demand that India should take a "clear stand" on the war in Gaza, saying "we cannot afford to sit on the fence" when disproportionate force was being used.

Raising the issue during Zero Hour, Sugata Bose (Trinamool Congress) referred to the tragic incident of an attack on a school in Gaza in which large number of women and children were killed.

"This is a clear violation of international law. We cannot afford to sit on the fence. When there was disproportionate use of force. I urge the government to take a clear stand on the side of morality," Bose said.

He was immediately supported by members of the Left parties, RJD and Congress.

This is what is in store for Israel, if it doesn't actively defend itself

India under Modi, did.

It fully supports Israel in its efforts to stop the raining of hundreds of Hamas rockets daily on Israel's population centers, which kept happening for the last 3-4 years.

Our disgusting parliamentarians are demanding a stand on Gaza when the media and these morons are totally silent on Amarnath yatra attacks or Muslim bigotry on Kausarnag yatra. These Kashmiri closet jihadis masquerading as University professors and intellectuals, after kicking out Pandits from the valley now say that the Kausarnag yatra will destroy ecology. Immediately other jihadis come out on the streets and start throwing stones and burning tyres and that cowardly communal CM of the state revokes permission given earlier! All our secualrists and liberals are hiding in their holes now till the next chapati thrusting incident happens!
