Posted by nakba60la on January 23, 2008

From L Jews for Peace … A Call to ALL Humanitarians …
**Join LA Jews for Peace**
Friday, January 25th, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM
Protest Israel’s Fuel Blockade of Gaza
Demonstrate in front of the Israeli Consulate
6380 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, 90048
 
Speak out now.  Call your lawmaker:  202-224-3121
 
Though we do not condone violence perpetrated by either side of the conflict, we recognize that the Palestinians in Gaza offered to negotiate a truce recently, only to be rebuffed because Israel refuses to negotiate with Hamas. Collective punishment – blocking fuel shipments, cutting off clean water, and denying medical care to over a million people – will only create more hatred and terror. We call on the people of the governments of the world, and in particular those represented by the U.S. government and the European Parliament, to push to censure Israel’s action and end support for Israeli aggression.  We call on all sides to negotiate. 
 
Call your lawmaker:  202-224-3121
 
Israel has broken Jewish and international law in tightening its siege of Gaza, where 1.5 million Palestinians are suffering in freezing darkness.  Only when the world community condemned these actions did Israel partially lift the blockade. Gaza has become the largest open air prison on the planet with no ingress or egress – no fuel for heat, no food to eatno medicine for the sick, limited electricity, and no agricultural or commercial goods to sustain the economy.  The U.S. must support diplomacy, not collective punishment.
