You said Justice ?

Bush calls it a historical moment in the making of Iraqi History . Blair is beaming . Iran said it was a victory for human rights and freedom...
The headline is "Saddam is to hang for crimes against humanity ".
And whilst the newspeaker was uttering this line , a flash came across the screen of my TV.
"In less than 5 days , over 50 palestinians killed in Gaza . Latest a young school boy ."
For some of you who don't know what Gaza is - simply remind yourselves of the Auschwitz Ghetto.

And as the world watches on the triumph of the export of Democracy to Iraq , Mc Donald/Coca Cola style , a nagging voice begs me to ask you :

When will Israel be put on trial for genocide ?
