Invasion Of Jenin By Sharon's War Government

GUSH SHALOM - pob 3322, Tel-Aviv 61033 - http://www.gush-shalom.org/

Urgent press release


Last Veil Removed: Invasion Of Jenin By Sharon's War Government

After the whole world condemned the attack on the Palestinian institutions in Jerusalem, followed the sneaky, nightly invasion of Jenin. Gush Shalom calls on Shimon Peres and the other Labor Party members to immediately leave Sharon's war government. Anybody who stays in this government now will be responsible for the further escalation and disaster which it brings over the two peoples - and may eventually have to account for it at the international court in The Hague.

Not only does the invasion of Jenin not prevent terrorism, it gives an enormous boost to those forces among the Palestinians who do the attacks in Israeli cities. From this invasion will be born dozens of new suicide bombers and when Sharon gave the order he knew it very well. This government is a government of war, this government was not willing to implement any plan, not the Mitchell plan, not the Tenet plan, what it really wants is to turn the clock back never to end the occupation.

Gush Shalom and the Coalition of Women for Peace - supported by other peace groups - will demonstrate, as planned, 6.00 PM at the site of the Orient House. This demonstration is going to be the expression of the peace moment at this very crucial hour.
