Emergency protest: Break the Cycle of Bloodshed!

In the past months, the conflict is growing, the cycle of violence and bloodshed is fast escalating. There is a straight line between the settler “Price Tag” violence and deadly arson at the village of Duma, this week’s shooting attack and the countless incidents of violence on both sides which we witnessed recently. Israelis and Palestinians are killed - and the Prime Minister keeps silent.

Deterioration and escalation lead but to further hatred and incitement, , revenge and counter-revenge. The Prime Minister, in his UN speech, did nothing to break the political deadlock. Both sides must return to negotiations.

We , activists and those shocked by the terrible events, come to say: There is another way! The voice of the moderate majority and sane opposition to violence must be heard. We will rally tonight, Saturday Oct. 3, at 19: 30 Habima Square in Tel Aviv. We must stop the cycle of violence!

The above statement and call for action was issued by Combatants For Peace. It is full-heartedly supported and joined by Gush Shalom.
