BREAK THE CYCLE OF VIOLENCE

None violence is the path to free Palestine in this time of the struggle. have you heard about the cycle of violence, Israelis act we react. Palestinians resist , Israelis react. Its a vicious cycle and the only way to brake it is through peaceful non violent actions and reactions.

It takes more strength and determination to resist peacefully than to resist violently by using force to fight back.
Imagine that you willingly sit down and cover your head while getting beaten by the Israeli army or the Police against Riot in your country.
The name and substance of both forces WILL HAVE TO CHANGE, The Israel Defence Army will change to The Israel Offence Army. The Police against Riot in your country will change to Police against Peace.


THINK ABOUT IT

-RE-

COMPASS TO PALESTINE

This call for help, collective work, and ideas was posted on my facebook, 2008
Dear All, I hope this finds you well.
As a response to the continuous suffering of the Palestinian people, I am initiating a project titled Compass to Palestine.
Monument, art installation, expression, contribution- these are just some of the words that I can use to describe it.
This is my vision . I would like to have your feedback and new ideas

Compass To Palestine


We honor our dead
Our dead are not numbers, they had stories.
 Put a face to every number

Tell a story for every number
All photos and stories will be mounted on a compass
The arrow of the compass leads to Palestine
This compass will be designed and sculpted by volunteering artists and designers

The compass will be built on a piece of land in Jordan
The compass will be a living commemoration of the heroic sacrifices of the people of GAZA on the path to Palestine
The compass will be a living commemoration of the hope of freedom for people under occupation
Preserve the dignified memory of our dead
Your help is needed, Send pictures and stories to this blog

Gaza Freedom March
UPDATE
December 21, 2009


We are determined to break the siege
We all will continue to do whatever we can to make it happen


Using the pretext of escalating tensions on the Gaza-Egypt border, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry informed us yesterday that the Rafah border will be closed over the coming weeks, into January. We responded that there is always tension at the border because of the siege, that we do not feel threatened, and that if there are any risks, they are risks we are willing to take. We also said that it was too late for over 1,300 delegates coming from over 42 countries to change their plans now. We both agreed to continue our exchanges.


Although we consider this as a setback, it is something we've encountered-and overcome--before. No delegation, large or small, that entered Gaza over the past 12 months has ever received a final OK before arriving at the Rafah border. Most delegations were discouraged from even heading out of Cairo to Rafah. Some had their buses stopped on the way. Some have been told outright that they could not go into Gaza. But after public and political pressure, the Egyptian government changed its position and let them pass.


Our efforts and plans will not be altered at this point. We have set out to break the siege of Gaza and march on December 31 against the Israeli blockade. We are continuing in the same direction.
