PALESTINE / ISRAEL: 40 Years is Enough!

Six Days of Action Against the Occupation of Palestine – June 5-11 2007

The second week of June marks forty years since the occupation of the West Bank, Gaza and the Golan heights in the 1967 Six Day war. This is now the longest enduring military occupation in the world. While the Israeli government evades negotiations that would end the occupation and lead to a just peace, the lives of Palestinians continue to be crushed daily by closures and economic strangulation, their land confiscated for settlements and their communities made into prisons by the racist wall.

At the same time, violence in the region continues to supply ideological fuel for the G8 governments in their 'War on Terror', explicitly declared as a never-ending, preemptive global war which justifies erasing civil liberties, supporting oppressive regimes, and attacking refugees and migrants. We are all victims of this war: in Palestine and Israel, in Iraq and in Colombia, in Germany and in the U.S.A.

In response, the "Occupation 40" convergence in Tel-Aviv is calling for six days of actions to mark forty years of occupation, June 5 to 11, 2007. The convergence is a democratic and non-hierarchical action platform of grassroots Israeli groups and organizations. Peace organizations, artists, students' groups, internal refugees, anarchists, animal rights activists, communists and individuals participate in this initiative. The six-day convergence in Israel will include demonstrations, direct actions, discussions, and cultural events. The International Coordination Network on Palestine called for a Global Day of Action on June 9. Read More

Israel emplea los mismos metodos de los nazis, cuando viene el día del holocausto tendrian que tener en cuenta que los sufrimientos de los judíos exterminados por los asesinos fascistas de Hitler, los están sufriendo ahora los palestinos, que en vez de ir todos a una se matan entre ellos cosa que beneficia a Israel.
El problema a mi entender es el fanatismo que hay en una parte de los judíos y también el radicalismo existente entre los integrantes de Hamás.
Israel tiene que devolver los terrenos arrebatados en la guerra de los 6 días.

Personally, i think the occupation of the Westbank may turn out to be a blessing in disguise. The Palestine people get protected by the Israelean forces from the ongoing slaughter between the faction as we have seen the last couple of weeks
