Zionist PM sees the darkness as Israel bombs more schools

Honorary Jewish National Fund patron, Gordon Brown, who also doubles as UK Prime Minister, seems to have detected a little unpleasantness about Israel's policy towards Gaza. Here's the Independent:
Speaking after Israeli airstrikes near UN schools in the territory reportedly killed scores of people, the Prime Minister said the situation was a "humanitarian crisis".

"This is the darkest moment yet for the Middle East and it affects the whole of the world," he said.

It's strange but if you follow the link you'll see that Israeli fire wasn't just "near" schools, it was at them and not only that but Gordon Brown's statement may well have been prompted by Obama's:
The US President-elect Barack Obama today expressed deep concern about the loss of civilian lives in Gaza and Israel.

Speaking after Israeli tank shells killed at least 40 Palestinians at a UN school where civilians had taken shelter, Obama told reporters "the loss of civilian life in Gaza and Israel is a source of deep concern for me."

American Kremlinologists will probably see some significance in Obama placing the word "Gaza" before the word "Israel" but we'll have to wait and see because "he would have plenty more to say after his 20 January inauguration."
