The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil,
but because of the people who don't do anything about it

Picketing the Defense Ministry - Wed. Dec. 9
Down with the occupation! No more victims, no more bloodshed!
Picketing the Defense Ministry gates on Kaplan Street, Tel Aviv Wednesday,
December 9, 2015 at 18:30. Down with the occupation! No more victims, no
more bloodshed! Settlers out of Hebron! We will not keep silent - we shall
not live by the sword!
Initiators: The Hithabrut - Tarabut Movement
Since the beginning of October, more than 120 people - Palestinians and
Israelis – lost their lives in yet another escalation of the occupation
violence. Hundreds were injured. Lives are cut off abruptly. Entire families
are deeply hurt, physically and psychologically. Fear and hatred reign in
the streets and at home. Enough!
Throughout the West Bank, as well as in the Palestinian neighborhoods of
East Jerusalem, there is an ongoing military and police offensive against
the general population. This goes almost completely unreported in the
mainstream Israeli media.
The racist settlement enclave at the heart of Hebron, a focus of ceaseless
violence, has created an Apartheid situation in the city. Tens of thousands
of people experience daily harassment. Hundreds of families have already
been evicted from their homes, and their businesses were closed down.
Hundreds more are directly targeted. The settlers, ensconced on higher
floors of Hebron buildings, literally throw down their garbage on the heads
of Palestinian passersby in the street below. Such outrageous daily
humiliations would have been more than enough to drive each and every one of
us to rebel!
Even here, inside Israel, acts of lynching and extrajudicial executions
following stabbings have become a daily routine. Such acts encouraged, aided
and abetted by the incitement of the Prime Minister in person - as of
numerous other holders of senior public positions. This is not the way to
provide security – not to anyone!. On the contrary, despair is increasing
and the future looks bleak. The heavy price is being paid daily by the men
and women of our two peoples. No more!
