A new poll shows the majority of British voters believe that Israel acted in a disproportionate manner during its recent military offensive in the Gaza Strip.

The Guardian/ICM poll published on Tuesday revealed that 52 percent of British voters believe that Tel Aviv acted disproportionately during its recent onslaught against Gazans.

This is while just 19 percent of respondents think Israel acted proportionally and the remaining 29 percent did not know.

The poll also found that Britons view of Israel has deteriorated, with 41 percent saying their opinion of Israel has worsened during its ground and aerial attacks on the besieged enclave.

Another 48 percent say their opinion of Israel remained the same, while a mere two percent claim it had improved and the remaining eight percent did not know.

The poll comes as Prime Minister David Cameron is under fire for not criticizing Israel over its aggression on the impoverished territory.

A number of senior British political figures, including Tory lawmakers, have called on the government to take a harder stance on the Israeli regime, saying Cameron has failed to speak out about the Israeli atrocities.

The government’s stance led to the resignation of Foreign Office cabinet minister, Sayeeda Warsi, a Tory member, last week.

In her resignation letter handed in on August 5, Warsi said the government’s “approach and language” during the month-long conflict in Gaza had been “morally indefensible.”

The Israeli military launched its recent offensive against the Gaza Strip on July 8. At least 1,955 Palestinians, mostly civilians, have lost their lives and over 10,000 have been wounded in the Israeli military attacks. Hamas says more than 150 Israelis have been killed in the conflict.

THE LEGAL RIGHT OF RESISTANCE

Is Resisting Genocide a Human Right?

81 Notre Dame Law Review1275(2006). Conducting an in-depth study of the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, and also discussing other genocides, this article details the inadequacy of many of the international community’s response to genocides, such as “targeted sanctions” or international peacekeeping forces. Examining international legal authorities such as the Genocide Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Court of Justice, the article demonstrates that groups which are being subjected to genocide have a legal right of self-defense. International treaties, Security Council arms embargoes, or national gun control laws cannot lawfully be enforced in a manner which prevents self-defense resistance to a genocide in progress, because under international law, the prohibition against any form of complicity in genocide takes legal precedence over lesser laws.

* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
