[1] About the Gaza bloody provocation: Gush Shalom sent letters to the Attorney General and the IDF Judge Advocate General

Gush Shalom has sent a letter to the Attorney General, asking him to start investigations against Prime Minister Sharon and Defence Minister Eliezer on suspicion of having initiated the bloody act out of internal party politics - Sharon's struggle against Netayahu in the Likud internal elections today, and Ben Eliezer's interest in a tense military situation to justify Labor's remaining in the government, saving his Defence Portfolio.

From the IDF Judge Advocate General Gush Shalom asks an investigation of the military officers involved: Chief of Staff Ya'alon; Air Force Commander Dan Halutz, and Brigadier General Israel Ziv, Commander of the Gaza Strip Division. In the past two weeks the generals have repeatedly made public caalls for an aggressive policy aimed at bringing the Palestinians to their knees and encouraged military men in general and the pilots of helicopters and combat planes in particular to have a light finger on the trigger. The bloody results of today are a direct result.

[2] protest at six TODAY, Ministry of Defense

We got a call from Peace Now to stand protest about the Khan Yuneis bloody provocation already claiming 13 Palestinian dead and hundred wounded.

The protest is at 6.00 PM, Defence Ministry. Peace Now asked us NOT to bring our War Crime signs... We decided not to bring there any Gush Shalom signs, but you will recognize us from the T-shirts. See you there.
