Gush Shalom Demonstration against the "Elimination" of Yasser Arafat 22/09/02 Two hundred peace activists demonstrated today opposite the Ministry of Defense in Tel-Aviv against Sharon's plan to "eliminate" Yasser Arafat. The action was called by Gush Shalom, the radical Israeli Peace Bloc.
This was the first Israeli demonstration against the renewed action against Arafat's compound in Ramallah.
Activists of several peace organizations took part.
Veteran peace activist Uri Avnery said: "We know that the real aim of Sharon is to kill Arafat. We believe that this would be a disaster for Israel. Arafat is the only Palestinian leader who is capable of making peace and convince his people to accept it. Killing Arafat means killing peace."
A big banner said: "The Murder of Peace: Rabin (1995), Arafat 2002".
Demonstrators shouted: "Get Out of Ramallah!" and "Fuad, Fuad, (Ben-Eliezer), Minister if Defense, How Many Children Have You Killed until Now?"
