Aloha Obama…? And silence is his stern reply

US president-elect, Barack Obama, has remained silent amid mounting pressure for him to speak out against the latest Israeli strikes against Palestine. Israel’s unrelenting assault on Gaza has left over 300 people dead, and some are calling Obama’s silence a form of complicity.

“Obama has said that Israel has the right to defend itself from rocket attacks but my question to him is ‘does he believe that Palestinians also have the right of self-defence?’ – Silence sounds like complicity,” said Mark Perry, the Washington Director of the Conflicts Forum group, in an interview with Al Jazeera.

So Obama, enjoy the rest of that sun, surf and sand on your Hawaiian holiday – maybe if you ignore it for long enough the crisis in the Palestine will just go away…
