This is a video montage documenting Israel's genocidal military campaign in Gaza. Despite the killings and brutality the New Zealand government chose not to condemn Israel - and nor did the Labour Party.
To its credit,the Green Party publicly stated its opposition to Israel's massive assault on Gaza.
Outside Parliament, the Alliance strongly condemned the actions of the Israeli government.
Alliance spokeserson Mathew Stephen also criticised the National-led government for its 'moral bankruptcy' in failing to take a stand against Israel's brutal 'Operation Cast Lead'.
Said Stephen: “If our National Government had any moral credibility New Zealand would cut diplomatic ties with Israel like Venezuela and Bolivia have done. The New Zealand Government cut its ties with Israel when Mossad agents were caught with counterfeit kiwi passports, but it won’t when hundreds of women and children have been murdered.”
