Gaza war Eminent Iranian contemporary poet, Houshang Ebtehaj, expressed deep sorrow over the children’s massacre in Gaza Strip.
However, talking about these bloodsheds will not solve anything. In this battle, one side is armed to the teeth and the other side is almost defenseless. This is while the international society shows total indifference to Gaza’s bloodbath – Houshang Ebtehaj
Commenting on the Zionist regime’s crimes in the occupied territory, the poet said, “I feel great grief over the violence used against the innocent Palestinian children. However, talking about these bloodsheds will not solve anything. In this battle, one side is armed to the teeth and the other side is almost defenseless. This is while the international society shows total indifference to Gaza’s bloodbath,”.
Some of the world’s politicians only seek to maximize the benefits of their national and trade companies and do not show any willingness to stop the mass murder, he said.
Ebtehaj noted that throughout the history, whenever humanity wanted to do or achieve something substantial to do away with crime and war, those who only seek their own interests have caused problems.
Meanwhile, Iranian movie star, Niki Karimi, also expressed regret over the relentless slaughter of Palestinian people by Israeli forces.
Ordinary citizens are being killed in Gaza everyday. I wonder what the United Nations is doing on the ground? And where the human rights advocates are? – Niki Karimi
She said, “I wonder how such disasters can occur in telecommunication era when most of the people have access to the internet and know how to use it. How is it possible that the Zionist regime does whatever it wants, while the international society shows no strong reaction?.”
What is currently going on in Gaza is an international disaster, she warned. “Ordinary citizens are being killed in Gaza everyday. I wonder what the United Nations is doing on the ground? And where the human rights advocates are?”
Karimi recalled that, “After the World War II came to an end, those who collaborated with Adolf Hitler to commit all those bloody and brutal crimes were executed. People still talk about Nazi party’s slaughter. However, at present, in 2014, despite the current unprecedented universal media coverage, we still see that such a brutal mass murder goes unnoticed which is very regrettable.”
