AntiWall Petition To Be Published Day Court Starts

Anti-Wall Petition To Be Published On Day International Court Starts

GUSH SHALOM pob 3322, Tel-Aviv 61033

Gush Shalom together with the other groups of the anti- wall coalition took an initiative, but you have to make it happen.

Next week, on Monday, February 23, the international court in The Hague will start deliberating on the issue of "The Separation Wall." On the same day the Coalition of Israeli Peace Organizations plans to publish a petition of Israeli citizens against the wall the Hebrew and English Ha'aretz newspaper, of which the text follows. If you want to join, please send until Saturday night your name (preferably in Hebrew!) to the address gader_ad@yahoo.com and at the same time send a donation (about 100 shekel if possible) in a check made out to "Ha'aretz Newspaper" to the address POB 2030, Jerusalem 21020. Further information: Itay 067- 300697.

NB: Donations from non-Israelis - to help defray the costs most welcome.

Thank you!

(On Monday 23.02 at 7.30 pm there will be a protest rally outside the Prime Minister's residence in Jerusalem. Details will follow.)

************

Not in our Name !

We, the undersigned, citizens of Israel, completely reject the Sharon government's claim that the "Separation Fence" which is being built in the occupied territories is intended to defend our safety and security.

This fence is being built deep inside the Palestinian territory. It is cutting through towns and villages, it is destroying and confiscating fields and olive groves, it separates farmers and their lands, between pupils and their schools, between ill people and hospitals, and it turns the life of a whole population into hell.

This fence is annexing settlements to Israel and imprisons the Palestinians in enclaves, with the aim of preventing any possibility of creating a viable Palestinian state - and at the same time wasting milliards from the empry treasury of the state of Israel, at the very time that the welfare budgets are crually slashed, terribly hurting the poor and disadvantaged in Israeli society.

This is not the way to prevent suicide bombings - it is a way to further aggravate the misery, the despair and hatred and perpetuate the conflict for further generations.

Today we say to the government of Israel: you are not building this evil wall in our name!

The true way to end the suicide bombings and bloodshed is y an agreement which will end the oiccupation and oppression from which the bloodshed stems.
