The Russell Tribunal on Palestine ~ will it help end the nightmare in Gaza?

I was pleased to learn that Roger Waters of Pink Floyd fame is a juror with the Russell Tribunal on Palestine, which completes its proceedings today in New York City. The imposition of an artificial state called Israel on the Palestinian people 64 years ago has destroyed the dreams of at least 3 generations of Palestinians whose only crime was to have been born there.

The crux of the problem is that this planet remains under the control of warlords descended from a virulent species of aggressive colonizers and empire builders whose DNA is now inextricably interwoven into the entire human population.

Only by overriding these violent tendencies within our own neurology can we hope to extricate ourselves from endless cycles of armed conflict that benefit nobody except a small handful of defense contractors and land grabbers.
