Jon Snow reporting about the abuse, and murder of children by Israel, in Gaza by Israel. Murdering, inhumane, right wing Israeli scumbags who kill children indiscriminately; and bomb hospitals, and United Nations Schools; and do not respect the Geneva Convention.
It is now time for the West to decide whether they are prepared to see hundreds of innocent civilians killed by a rich state who have a lot of influence around the world. I am sickened by the murderous attitudes of Israel.

In the 1871 census at the Pelham Arms, the publican was Charles William Grattan Bill. He was the brother of Elizabeth Butcher who inherited the Duke of Clarence, 186 Rotherhithe Street, from her first husband Jeremiah Pilon. She is my Great Great Grandmother, and married George Butcher in 1859, after the death of Jeremiah. ***

As far as I can see most of my ancestors were licensed victuallers in London from 1841 ( census ). Mary Bill was publican at the Prince of Wales in Birton Street, Lambeth. ***
