The world is silent! Is it really?

Bertolt Brecht in one of his poems says:
"The first time it was reported that our friends were being butchered
there was a cry of horror.
Then a hundred were butchered.
But when a thousand were butchered and there was no end to the butchery,
a blanket of silence spread.
When evil-doing comes like falling rain,
nobody calls out "stop!"

When crimes begin to pile up they become invisible. When sufferings become unendurable the cries are no longer heard.
The cries, too, fall like rain in summer."


The world is not silent! The world can not be silent when sees the innocent Palestinians die every moment in a bloodiest war ever... We hear only certain voices in the media:

"This recent outburst of violence was instigated by Hamas — a Palestinian terrorist group supported by Iran and Syria that calls for Israel's destruction," Bush said.
Bush: Hamas attacks on Israel an 'act of terror'
