Today a family from Ashkelon is coming to live with us, we have the privilege to offer a family a "normal" life for this period of time ... and this bring in light that civilians in Gaza have no refuge.

We need to demand from Israel to declare a non-war zone in Gaza - a region where people can come and get refuge ... and I hope that the Hamas people will understand that for protecting life at this time is crucial.

Invitation

The Goal: stop the killing in Gaza ASAP.
and ... CHANGE the world conception of its responsibility toward people who do not have a state. Bring to life an international positive campaign for demanding the world to provide a safe heaven for the Gazan civilians.

The Plan: Invite threw social network and personal connections people with volunteering resources of time, talent, connection and passion and join a self governed network of activists who collaborate with the maximum of NGO's and Governments to make the world take responsibility for the safe haven for the Gazans. Avoid blame of Hamas Israel or any other party to the current events. ask for CHANGE.

Submit your resources and find a working cell: As international cooperation we are all have different time zone, language and culture. to coordinate that we invite you to submit your resources you wish to make available. this statement will always be open to change upon your wish, but it enable us to connect your talent, time and capacities to a working cells.

Join the core cell: for stating the networking and resourcing our communal abilities we need core cell of people to take charge on the resource data base and helping the cells to be formed. main task is to channel the talents threw the different cells for producing a message (graphically, textually, videos etc.) and delivering it (social networks, mass media etc.) to find the maximum organization to cooperate in all levels of influence.


The situation in Gaza is real. it must be stopped.

Israel is the big strong guy and Hamas is holding a deaf ear, innocent people are in the middle, so sad and unfair situation.
I started a group calling for safe-haven for Gazans where I wish to call for people to think, plan and act to create a safe haven for Gazan at this time.

we have israelis that can bring this call now to the public and we have the need for that we all agree, we are not asking who is the bad guy, because while we ask that we let this bad guy to continue risk life of innocents.

So ,,,, if you approve this group, I would be able to start invite people who wish to influence. THE TIME IS NOW, THIS IS URGENT.

The neighborhood bully strikes again
By Gideon Levy

Israel embarked yesterday on yet another unnecessary, ill-fated war. On July 16, 2006, four days after the start of the Second Lebanon War, I wrote: "Every neighborhood has one, a loud-mouthed bully who shouldn't be provoked into anger... Not that the bully's not right - someone did harm him. But the reaction, what a reaction!"

Two and a half years later, these words repeat themselves, to our horror, with chilling precision. Within the span of a few hours on a Saturday afternoon, the IDF sowed death and destruction on a scale that the Qassam rockets never approached in all their years, and Operation "Cast Lead" is only in its infancy.

Once again, Israel's violent responses, even if there is justification for them, exceed all proportion and cross every red line of humaneness, morality, international law and wisdom.

What began yesterday in Gaza is a war crime and the foolishness of a country. History's bitter irony: A government that went to a futile war two months after its establishment - today nearly everyone acknowledges as much - embarks on another doomed war two months before the end of its term.

In the interim, the loftiness of peace was on the tip of the tongue of Ehud Olmert, a man who uttered some of the most courageous words ever said by a prime minister. The loftiness of peace on the tip of his tongue, and two fruitless wars in his sheath. Joining him is his defense minister, Ehud Barak, the leader of the so-called left-wing party, who plays the role of senior accomplice to the crime.

Israel did not exhaust the diplomatic processes before embarking yesterday on another dreadful campaign of killing and ruin. The Qassams that rained down on the communities near Gaza turned intolerable, even though they did not sow death. But the response to them needs to be fundamentally different: diplomatic efforts to restore the cease-fire - the same one that was initially breached, one should remember, by Israel when it unnecessarily bombed a tunnel - and then, if those efforts fail, a measured, gradual military response.

But no. It's all or nothing. The IDF launched a war yesterday whose end, as usual, is hoping someone watches over us.

Blood will now flow like water. Besieged and impoverished Gaza, the city of refugees, will pay the main price. But blood will also be unnecessarily spilled on our side. In its foolishness, Hamas brought this on itself and on its people, but this does not excuse Israel's overreaction.

The history of the Middle East is repeating itself with despairing precision. Just the frequency is increasing. If we enjoyed nine years of quiet between the Yom Kippur War and the First Lebanon War, now we launch wars every two years. As such, Israel proves that there is no connection between its public relations talking points that speak of peace, and its belligerent conduct.

Israel also proves that it has not internalized the lessons of the previous war. Once again, this war was preceded by a frighteningly uniform public dialogue in which only one voice was heard - that which called for striking, destroying, starving and killing, that which incited and prodded for the commission of war crimes.

Once again the commentators sat in television studios yesterday and hailed the combat jets that bombed police stations, where officers responsible for maintaining order on the streets work. Once again, they urged against letting up and in favor of continuing the assault. Once again, the journalists described the pictures of the damaged house in Netivot as "a difficult scene." Once again, we had the nerve to complain about how the world was transmitting images from Gaza. And once again we need to wait a few more days until an alternative voice finally rises from the darkness, the voice of wisdom and morality.

In another week or two, those same pundits who called for blows and more blows will compete among themselves in leveling criticism at this war. And once again this will be gravely late.

The pictures that flooded television screens around the world yesterday showed a parade of corpses and wounded being loaded into and unloaded from the trunks of private cars that transported them to the only hospital in Gaza worthy of being called a hospital. Perhaps we once again need to remember that we are dealing with a wretched, battered strip of land, most of whose population consists of the children of refugees who have endured inhumane tribulations.

For two and a half years, they have been caged and ostracized by the whole world. The line of thinking that states that through war we will gain new allies in the Strip; that abusing the population and killing its sons will sear this into their consciousness; and that a military operation would suffice in toppling an entrenched regime and thus replace it with another one friendlier to us is no more than lunacy.

Hezbollah was not weakened as a result of the Second Lebanon War; to the contrary. Hamas will not be weakened due to the Gaza war; to the contrary. In a short time, after the parade of corpses and wounded ends, we will arrive at a fresh cease-fire, as occurred after Lebanon, exactly like the one that could have been forged without this superfluous war.

In the meantime, let us now let the IDF win, as they say. A hero against the weak, it bombed dozens of targets from the air yesterday, and the pictures of blood and fire are designed to show Israelis, Arabs and the entire world that the neighborhood bully's strength has yet to wane. When the bully is on a rampage, nobody can stop him
Mazin,
we can discuss over and over again and wait for the world to interveen while the Israelis can drive to Tel-Aviv and the Gazan have no Safe Haven.

Join our group, use your network and wisely send message to the public of Israel to ask Israel to make the effort and use its force not only to bomb but also to create a place for civilians to hide.
Yep! Just fan the flames!

Does that make you feel good? Probably.

Does it help those who are now suffering? I doubt it.

Does it help to increase that suffering? Both my head and my heart tell me == Y E S!

==PmR
Yep! here is your mirror

I agree! :-) And that was my point. I am glad that you got it Neri!
I am sad you continuously miss it.
you blame other of doing what you do, you help to increase that suffering and Probably it make you feel good.
Neri:

Paul can't get anything that may shake the foundation of the mythologies of superiority and choseness. I believe it is a waste of time to engage with individuals like that since he will not move even one millimeter even when pushed by a mountain of evidence or logic.

Now on the issue of safe haven that you raise: International law recognizes that the occupying power is responsible for the safety, security and well being of those under occupation. The UN and all International agencies say that Israel is responsible for the people of Gaza since the occupation never ended but merely became a large prison controlled and administered by Israel in collaboration with the subserviant Egyptian government..So my thought is it is critical for Israeli citizens to start questioning the constant stream of lies and distortions that they are fed. Israel as a government (and since it is a democracy for Jews, by extension its Jewish citizens) is responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity. It is time to get out into the streets (as some did in Tel Aviv, but more is needed).
Well, he is a voice that exist in the field of Peace activists.
I like to ralate to all voices.
Correction: He is a voice that exists on a forum of potential peace activists
Dear Mazin,

Paul Voice and many Israeli voice to will hear this days is a voice of the tribe. Our Tribal impolse is driving us to protect ... It is Played by the Political leaders and I think you know that.

As what Israel as a country is doing today is a complex emotional work, you will not find it common in Israel as you will not find it common in Palestine.

So we will hear this voices and will fill angry because they do not recongnize 300+ souls who died and many to be heart.

I am sorry for that, really do, But my commitment is for change for a better future that will transcend our Tribal emotions, this is our responsibility to our children.

Peace.
