What is the world saying about Israel's action in Gaza?
Well, the usual suspects have been saying the usual things.
The UN, via General Secretary Ban-Ki Moon decry Israel's use of excessive force, while acknowledging Israel's right to self-defense. I'd ask what isn't excessive force? Dropping bombs in open areas, that do nothing? I get the feeling that anything that actually might have some effect would be considered excessive.
The various Arab groups are calling it "war crimes" and the Iranian Foreign Ministry claim that those killed have been "murdered".
Interestingly enough Abbas, while calling the action a "massacre" has laid the blame on Hamas. Even the Egyptian FM has been critical of Hamas.
Asked who was to blame for the dire situation in Gaza, the foreign minister replied: "Ask the party that controls Gaza."
At least the US, while calling for restraint, only requesting Israel avoid civilians.
