The ongoing slaughter of innocent Palestinians is causing uproar throughout the globe as Israel is internationally condemned for its brutal aggression. The stance of major powers including Britain and the US is viewed as an affront to decency and humanity. Of significance is the lack of political action or influence of Arab and Muslim rulers who do not match the inspirations and actions of their masses Where will this aggression lead to?
