Jewish Palestinian anti war demo in Tel Aviv tomorrow

The killing in Gaza continues. Hundreds have been killed, thousands injured, air-strikes have caused utter devastation and entire families are left homeless. The wounded cannot receive adequate treatment due to a shortage of medical supplies and equipment.

Civilians in the south of Israel are being held captive by a government which lies to them and abuses them. Destruction and death in Gaza will not ensure their future, but rather lead to more violence and killings.

Join us in protest tomorrow Saturday, 3.1.2009, in Tel Aviv. Together we will call out:

"Stop the Killing! No to the Siege! Yes to life for both peoples!"


In these dark days, let us stick to our message:

"Jews and Arabs refuse to be enemies!"

Our demand: A full truce and the lifting of the siege on Gaza NOW!

We meet at the corner of Frishman St. and Khen Boulevard in Tel Aviv at 18:30

Buses will leave from Jaffa from "Gan HaShnaym", the little park at the corner of Yefet and Ehrlich street at 17.00

I have a great idea.

I think you should do it nude.

No here me out. Nude protesting is the latest thing. PETA does it all the time.

You can talk about the "naked" agression" going on in Gaza.

Even the Jewish prophet Isaiah went naked for three whole years in protest. And you just have to do it for a few hours.

Just think of the press it would generate.

And after all this cause is really important to you after all.

in summer, yes, surely, but it's bloody freezing right now

Max said...

here=hear (sorry).

But the fact that its freezing makes it all the more significant. It really shows your dedication.

Anyone can protest nude in the summer. That's easy. But protesting nude the winter shows you are really committed. The news media will be really impressed that there are people out there willing to go nude in winter to save the lives of Palestinians.

Well max, so this is my proposal to you: as it is your idea, why not be the first and give us all an example of how much YOU re willing to do for peace

Max said...

It's your cause, not mine.

I guess you aren't as committed as you pretend to be.

MAX FACTOR/MODERN TIMES

To make a real statement Max, next time you protest do it like the Buddhist monks during the Vietnam war.
Torch yourself, that will be a statement.


By the way I would not have dared to ask these people to demonstrate naked.
In the former century after being rounded up people had to undress before being shot.

You would have thought that would have made them realize the importance of being strong instead of being victims.

But somewhere within the Jewish psyche lurks the the Self Hating Jew. Not sure how it evolved though.

One of the things I have always wondered is how were the Jews just rounded up?

What I mean is if it happened to a group I was associated with I would go underground the moment they started rounding people up and arm myself. I am not saying I could defeat the SS or whatever but they wouldn't get me into a cattle car. I am sure they would kill me but hopefully I would be able to take one or two of them with me.

There was no resistance. They just marched right in there as drones. I would have fought. I would have scratched bitten and kicked. And yeah, I would have been shot without them even having a second thought about shooting me.

But at least I would have done everything I could have to RESIST! And best case would have been for me to be armed so at least I could have taken a few of them with me. Because it really is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.

I have to agree with that poster who said that the heart of a Nazi lurks within the German. You can see

I'm afraid in the hearts of all of us lurks a "little racist", all of us, somehwere in the deepest of our hearts are scared of what is foreign to us, and seems so different from what is trusted an known.
The questions is, are we willing to face our own little bigoted fears and see them for what they are and overcome them to see what the other really is like, or do we go along with our anxiety right into the welcoming arms of racism and hate. Whe people start speaking about "the German Psyche" i start to feel very worried.
It's the sort of generalization, that in itself can easily be at the basis of fascist thinking and activity. Replace it with "Ruandan" (Tootsi or Hutu), Croatian, Cambodian, Turkish (the Armenian genocide) or anything you like.
I believe all peoples are capable of mass murder if sufficiently made to hate by sick enough leaders who give them the trust that it "is a necessary evil only done to save the worthy motherland". History is full of these cases, both in the West and in the East.
When we exempt ourselves from that option, we're , paradoxically, getting closer to it, as it allows us to not carefully judge our actions.

This war is going well despite your best efforts.

It looks like the Jews are finally rising up again to say NEVER AGAIN!

It's either the Palestinians or the Jews and the Jews will not be victims anymore!

yudit said...

Anonymous (aren't you the little coward, hiding your identity) are you know assuming to be the official spokesperson for "all" the Jews (the majority of whom do not live in Israel, nor ever intend to do so)?

Your statement is, as usual, over simplistic, but perhaps that is the sorriest your limited brain can do. i pity you
