Stop the Bloodshed! Ceasefire Now!


The Coalition Against the Gaza Siege

Press Release, March 7, 2008

Stop the Bloodshed! Ceasefire Now!

The Coalition Against the Gaza Siege calls for an immediate end to the
killing and violence, on both sides of the conflict. Bloodshed does
not compensate for bloodshed, and revenge is no solution.

Any attack on, wounding or killing of unarmed civilians - as happened
in the attack on the Merkaz HaRav Yeshiva as during the IDF attacks
and bombings of Gaza and in the shooting of missiles at Sderot,
Ashkelon and the Western Negev - must end forthwith.

It is the civilians on both sides who are exposed to harm and who pay
the full price for the manoeuvres of the political and military
leaderships.

We call upon the leaderships, of both sides, including all
organizations and parties, to cease all violence immediately.

We call upon the international community and the world public opinion
to firmly demand an end to the mutual killing and bloodshed.

In order to achieve that, we call for a full and mutual ceasefire, as
a first step negotiating an end to the occupation and an end to the
conflict between the two peoples, to a full peace which is the only
hope for our future.
