Standing with Israel Peace Rally - Midland Park, Wellington

A busload of 50 people from Napier/Hastings are going down to Wellington in support of the following:

Standing with Israel Peace Rally - Midland Park, Wellington

18 July, 2014

We are a group of fair-minded New Zealanders who maintain that:
1. It is the Israeli governments right and responsibility to defend her citizens
2. Israel did not want this war, nor did they initiate this war; they were forced into it by the unceasing barrage of rockets being fired upon her innocent civilian population
3. Israelis overwhelmingly want to live in peace with their Palestinian neighbours, but the terrorist regime in Gaza wants only war.
4. As Prime Minister Netanyahu has already said, while Israel are using missile defences to protect their civilians, Hamas are using their civilians to protect their missiles.

The supporters from Hawkes Bay will be leaving the Flaxmere Christian Fellowship Church at 220 Flaxmere Avenue at 7:00am on Friday morning.
