Red Cross Distressed Over Gaza Civilian Deaths
The scale of civilian losses during the four-week conflict in the Gaza Strip must not happen again, the head of the International Committee of the Red Cross said on Thursday.

Speaking to reporters after visiting Gaza, ICRC President Peter Maurer said he was “deeply distressed and shocked to see the impact of violence on the civilian population”.

"To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of  compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places  -- and there are so many -- where people have behaved magnificently, this  gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction." - Howard Zinn
