Who Made The Decision For Targeted Killing?

Who Made The Decision?

Question: Who gave the order to carry out the “targeted killing” in the Askar refugee camp near Nablus, killing four people? And, after that, who gave the order to kill the Jihad militant in Hebron? Everybody knew that these executions would be followed by acts of revenge, and that the hudna (truce) was liable to be shattered.

The hudna is like a bicycle: either you move forward or you fall.

Instead of taking advantage of the hudna in order to come closer to a political solution, the Sharon government avoids any positive step: it releases prisoners who were about to be release anyhow, leaves hundreds of checkpoints in place and removes three for the cameras, continues to build the Choking Wall and threatens to open the Temple Mount by force.

But if the hudna will collapse – who will be blamed?

Two States – One Common Future

In view of Sharon’s tricks, it is important to state again:

There is no solution to the conflict other than the establishment of Israeli-Palestinian peace based on the co-existence of two independent and sovereign states, the State of Israel and the State of Palestine, on either side of the Green Line, with their capitals in Jerusalem.

Gush Shalom, one of the pioneers of the idea of “Two States for Two Peoples”, believes that this is the realistic solution for the historic conflict.

We reject categorically Sharon’s policy of deceit. He talks about “an end to the occupation” and “a Palestinian state” – when all he means is Palestinian enclaves, cut off from each other, on half the area of the West Bank.

We shall continue to fight against the building of the “separation wall” that is designed to realize this aim of the Sharon government.

Peace – Not Occupation!

Partnership – Not Separation!
