On Thursday, in the middle of a broadcast of a program called Sichat Hayom on Israel’s Channel 2, anchor Lucy Aharish switched from Hebrew to English to deliver a scathing and stark message to anybody listening: What is happening in Aleppo is a “genocide,” a “holocaust.”
“In this world,” said Aharish, “we are standing and doing nothing while children are being slaughtered every single hour. … I am ashamed that the Arab world is being taken hostage by terrorists and murderers and that we are not doing anything. I am ashamed that the peaceful majority of humanity is irrelevant once again.”
Here are her powerful words about a powerless population, addressed, in part, to those world leaders who remain inept in their assistance of the Syrian people who are being brutalized.
