  1. On October 20, secretary-general of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, stood on the Egyptian side of the Rafah crossing, between Egypt and besieged Gaza.

    Guterres was not the only international figure to travel to the Gaza border, hoping to mobilise the international community in the face of an ongoing genocide, in an already impoverished and besieged Strip.

    “Behind these walls, we have two million people that is suffering [sic] enormously,” Guterres said.

    These efforts, however, paid little dividends.

    The spokesperson for the Ministry of Health in Gaza, Ashraf Al Qudra, said in a statement on October 24, that the flow of humanitarian aid into Gaza is “too slow [for it to] change the reality” on the ground.

    This means that the seemingly endless UN Security Council debates, General Assembly resolutions and calls for action did little to alter the tragic situation in Gaza in any meaningful way.

    This begs the question, what is the use of the elaborate international political, humanitarian and legal systems, if they are unable to stop, or even slow down a genocide that is being aired live on TV screens all across the world?

    In previous genocides, whether those accompanying the Great Wars or that of Rwanda in 1994, various justifications were offered to explain the lack of immediate actions. In some cases, no Geneva Conventions existed and, as in Rwanda, many pleaded ignorance.

    But, in Gaza, no excuse is acceptable. Every international news company has correspondents or some presence in the Strip. Hundreds of journalists, reporters, bloggers, photographers and cameramen are documenting and counting every event, every massacre and every bomb dropped on civilian homes. It is important here to note that scores of journalists have already been killed in Israeli attacks.
