Resolved Question: Was it right for Tony
Ariel Sharon was responsible for the 1982 Sabra and Shatila massacre (Kahn Commission) of upto 3500 Palestinian refugees (men, women and children).
Tony Blair is responsible for sending British troops to Iraq based on a lie which has resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths of Iraqi civilians and our own troops. He brought his type of peace to Iraq - which means allowing an environment whereby daily suicide attacks take place.
So was it right for one war criminal to attend the funeral of another war criminal???

Resolved Question: Was Ariel Sharon a
Israeli historian Avi Shlaim describes one massacre He was involved in thus:
“Sharon’s order was to penetrate Qibya, blow up houses and inflict heavy casualties on its inhabitants. His success in carrying out the order surpassed all expectations. The full and macabre story of what happened at Qibya was revealed only during the morning after the attack.
The village had been reduced to rubble: forty-five houses had been blown up, and sixty-nine
civilians, two thirds of them women and children, had been killed
Sharon and his men "claimed" that they believed that all the inhabitants had run away and that they had no idea that anyone was hiding inside the houses.
Hmmmmmm well said Mr Stoner.
Keep speaking the truth here.
Persist even until "they" block you.
Join again and continue.
The TRUTH MUST be shared.
