Annie Lennox updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@annielennox) on Sunday (January 4). The Eurythmics singer told readers:
As you are probably aware, I’ve been pretty busy over the last few days, talking to media and press with regard to the dire situation in Gaza.
I want to make my position crystal clear.
I am making a plea on behalf of innocent civilians. ALL innocent civilians on BOTH sides.
Now that Israeli ground forces have entered Gaza, there is only one guarantee.. ABSOLUTE CARNAGE.
How can this strategy ever contribute to the creation of lasting peace, security and stability for Israeli citizens, Palestinian citizens, or citizens of the world???
As of yesterday, a tragic giant step was taken backwards and further away from peaceful conflict resolution.
