Is the deteriorating situation in Gaza strip and in Palestinian refugee camps is rising the ire of many sectors of civil society in the world, who can hardly understand why the international silence towards this tragedy. I see loyalty, humanity, open minds from human rights fighters in UK, Turkey, Venezuela, Switzerland, and many parts of the world. While the official attitude has been the look for balance and impartiality in the center of pressure from several quarters, the observers note a significant change in the direction of the public opinion about what is happening in the Middle East.

Today the majority of Swiss do not have a compelling reason to explain the violence, which is treated by the Israeli neighbors the Palestinians".
