Annie Lennox has been busy blogging nearly every day recently about the conflict in Gaza.
“One common theme of self interest both sides must surely share is that ordinary citizens want to live sustainably peaceful lives,” she wrote last week. "Tragically the extremity of the situation means that “carnage” is the modus operandi. It is a horrendous price to pay and will only extend the bloodbath further to create more instability for everyone caught up in it.
“This Gordion knot of violence is not the way to a peaceful solution FOR EITHER SIDE and never will be. Blessed are the peace makers.. But where are they???!!!!”
As the death toll rises and more stories of senseless violence come to light, Annie had this to say earlier this week: "Gaza fighting continues as both sides reject each others’ cease fire announcements. According to UNICEF the death toll in Gaza has risen to more than 1,030, with 218 children killed, two thirds of them under the age of 12.
“At some point in time the leaders will have to come to some kind of agreement, otherwise the future will be total oblivion on both sides…That has always been at the core of any statement I’ve ever made about this horrendous situation.
“It’s in everyone’s best interest to find a peaceful solution.”
