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

Press Release Nov. 13, 2018
Hebrew original forwarded by Standing Together firstname.lastname@example.org, translation Adam Keller
Today at 20:00 - Haifa, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem
The Standing Together movement, along with various peace groups, will demonstrate today (Tuesday, Nov. 13) throughout the country, demanding a complete change of direction. Instead of war and fear and bloodshed we should lift the siege of Gaza, end the occupation, and actively pursue of a comprehensive Israeli-Palestinian peace.
The pain of suffering casualties, the fear of another night without sleep and the question “why?` are now the lot of very many people. We want - we must - change this reality. This conflict has gone on far too long. Again and again it flares up. Again we hear arrogant statements about “It is time to teach them a lesson” which do not and should not give anyone a feeling of confidence.
We must take a new path. Residents of Southern Israel and residents of Gaza, Israelis and Palestinians – only peace can guarantee security to all of us. Only peace will ensure quiet nights - this is the only way. Let`s end for spreading hatred and sowing fear, let`s end this pain. Today, especially today, let us demand what should have taken place long ago, the only thing that can ensure life: lifting of the siege, ending the occupation and achieving Israeli-Palestinian peace. We deserve a happy ending to this sad and difficult story. `
The demonstrations will take place at:
Haifa - UNESCO Square in the German Colony, at the foot of the Baha`i Gardens
Jerusalem - Paris Square
Tel Aviv – The corner of Rothschild Boulevard and Allenby Street
