Gaza and Warsi out of the news!

It is understandable why Baroness Warsi resigned as a foreign office minister over the British government's stance on the atrocities in Gaza.

Ease with which both the Gaza and Warsi have been taken out of the news because these are successfully turning public opinion against some,  tends to confirm that while some journalists might be free, journalism is not because it is an industry controlled by the national and international financial and political forces.

Gaza: The strong feeling about the Palestine plight cuts across the social, political and religious spectrum as confirmed by the recent big demonstration in London, supported by Jewish, Muslim and atheist solidarity groups. Such a solidarity also confirms that public thinks differently and the government thinks totally differently.

For example, the justification for the Israeli attack on Gaza propagated by the government, media and few MPs, like the one in Harrow East ( his letter - and responses to his disproportionate position on Palestine) - is not what the public shares or cares as revealed by Seamus Milne, writer and Guardian associate editor,  00.49s onwards .

Baroness Warsi: nothing new in what happened to Sayeeda Warsi because the only space political parties allow for minority people is to collude with them and bring in voters from the same race, and if they fail to do so, they are systematically ditched.

Sayeeda’s appointment as a co-chairman of the Conservative Party some years ago was not an easy ride for her and eventually she had to step down. But now she questioned the Conservatives government’s unjust support for Israel, ignoring the plight of Palestinians, especially the current killings of thousands innocent men, women and children in Gaza. Obviously such an intervention by Sayeeda did not go well with the party hopeful for 2015.

Interesting that soon after Warsi factor we hear about the hastily appointed Ranbir Singh Suri to the Lords – the move has already back-fired as Lord Suri is disowned by the Sikh community saying that the Tory donor made a peer under false pretences.
