The United Nations has warned that the Middle East is on the “verge of the abyss” as the war between Palestine and Israel quickly progresses. Israel has blocked fuel and food from entering Palestine as they prepare to mount a ground invasion.
The UN and other humanitarian agencies have claimed that they are trying to help by prepositioning aid. The latest conflict between Israel and Hamas broke out following Hamas militant’s October 7th attack on several locations inside Israel and Israel’s subsequent declaration of war.
In a statement, Guterres called on Hamas to immediately release the hostages it is still holding without conditions. He added that Israel should also grant rapid and unimpeded access to Palestine for humanitarian aid for the civilians who need it in Gaza.
“Our selfless staff on the ground, along with NGO partners, need to be able to bring these supplies into and throughout Gaza safely,” said Mr. Guterres. These objectives should not become bargaining chips and must be implemented, appealed the UN Secretary-General, adding that it is “the right thing to do”.
So, the right thing to do is to let the war rage on and keep killing people, but allow “humanitarian” war conditions? The UN is far from selfless. Considering their endgame the enslavement of humanity in a much more permanent state than we have now, they are anything by selfless. This world is insane.
According to UN Commissioner-General Philippe Lazzarini, soon, there will be no food or medicine available. Thousands of people have been killed, including children and women. Gaza is now even running out of body bags, the UNRWA chief lamented.
Things look like they will get worse, as Hamas appears to have no intention of releasing any hostages, and Israel has no intention of calling of its ground invasion. All we can do is prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
