Called by independent activists from Break the Siege and San Francisco Women In Black Bring relevant signs and candles Stop the Killing - Let Palestine Live! "
START DATE: Friday November 10
TIME: 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM
Note two things: this wasn't made known until today (Thursday afternoon), and tomorrow's event is planned for both the rush hour and the beginning of the Sabbath.
It would be lovely if we can get a serious presence to let an alternative voice by heard. Israel is catching hell from all the usuall loudmouths, who have already passed judgement and discounted the Israeli side, and have refused to mention the fact that a daily rocket barrage has been coming out of Gaza for months now.
Israel withdrew from Gaza last year. Israel no longer "occupies" Gaza. Yet the terrorist attacks have only increased, the level of haphazard violence directed against Israel has only gotten worse, and the chorus of hate has only gained in volume.
Palestinian terror attacks are standardly justified as righteous self-defense. Which is balderdash. Self-defense does NOT consist of firing Qassams into residential neighborhoods. Self-defense does NOT include deliberately targeting the Israeli public. Self-defense does not include kidnapping and suicide-bombers.
Qassams, kidnapping and murder, and suicide bombings are acts of terror aimed at civilians.
I know that many Europeans are largely willing to overlook perfidy, provided that the terrorists only strike the Jews.
I do not believe that Americans are like that.
Please, please, show up tomorrow and let your voice be heard. Speak out against the supporters of terror against Israel, speak out against the quislings who advocate surrender, speak out against the secretive anti-Semites who hide their hatred under a pretence of concern!
Bring signs. A good selection of possible signs and slogans can be found here: http://www.standwithus.com/signs.asp
Good messages to tell the public:
STOP FIRING ROCKETS FROM GAZA!
HAMAS, STOP THE AGGRESSION!
Also bring flags. Israeli flags, and American flags.
Thank you in advance for your support, I hope to see you there.
Be strong, and be well.
