An E-mail Sent to Palestinian Representative at the U.N., Mr. Riyadh Mansour
Dear Mr. Mansour,
Like countless other Palestinians I was shocked and outraged by the stand that your mission took in the Security Council. I am referring to your decision to work with the hostile U.S. Administration to block a resolution sponsored by Qatar and Indonesia calling for easing of the humanitarian suffering of the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and calling for the opening of the Rafah crossing to Egypt.
I am flabbergasted: you call yourselves Palestinian representatives and yet you are actively working with Israel and the U.S. to starve 1.5 million Palestinians in Gaza, through a total blockade? You call yourselves Palestinians and you, purposely, have been keeping over 6,000 sick and miserable Palestinians stranded in the Egyptian desert for almost two months, because you are demanding that the Rafah crossing remains closed? You are directly responsible for the death of 32 of these people, so far, and you call yourselves Palestinians?
Sir, besides treason, what you are doing is actively taking part in a war crime of collective punishment and genocide; do you realize that? One day the Palestinian people will have the right to try you and your superiors as war criminals just as the Germans tried and convicted Nazi war criminals.
I hope that day will come not in the distant future, so that criminals like you and your superiors starting with Mahmoud Abbas would get the punishment they deserve.
