ABSTRACT
Israel unleashed "operation cast lead" on December 27 with the declared aim of ending rocket attacks into Israel from Gaza that resumed after six month truce ended. International efforts to halt the conflict sought new impetus after the UN Security council failed even to agree the wording of the statement on the conflict with the US giving strong backing to Israel. Meanwhile the U.N. Security council failed to agree on a Libyan draft calling for an immediate halt to fighting on account of U.S. objections. The number of Palestine death during the period-935 wounding 4260. Hamas offered stiff resistance against the Israelis with no credible support to stop the war. Mr. Brown is accused toeing line like his predecessor Tony Blair in the Iraqi invasion and the Israeli attacks of Lebanon in 2006. The 21 day intense and relentless campaign did not put an end to the barrage of rockets from Gaza strip.
