New_combatants for peace 3-6-09 malden mass 002.jpgIsraeli Yaniv Rashef, whose home is in range of Gaza missiles, was a foot soldier in the Israeli army-and chose to fight no more. Palestinian Bassam Aramin served seven years in jail for planning an attack against Israeli soldiers--and chose no more violence. Just two years ago, Bassam lost his daughter to an israeli soldier's rubber-coated bullet. They are Combatants For Peace, now over 600 former Israeli soldiers and former Palestinian fighters, working together without revenge for justice and peace in Palestine/Israel.

Former Palestinian and Israeli combatants are speaking in Mass. in March; advocating a peaceful solution to Palestine/Israel war.

Funeral Procession in Boston Joins National Protests Against Israel's Incursion in Gaza
BWP1100722.pngBoston, Mass.--Around 400 people with home-made coffins marched in downtown Boston in a silent funeral procession to join protests around the world against Israel's military aggression in Gaza. Thousands marched in major cities in Europe, Arab countries, and the United States to express their outrage for the killings of so far 821 Palestinians, including 235 children, and close to 3700 wounded (50% of them women and children). Thirteen Israelis have died in the offensive, ten of them soldiers.

“Palestinian people must be some of the most extraordinary human beings in the world to continue to survive and raise families and talk about peace under the conditions they are living in,” said Catherine Hoffman from the Cambridge-Bethlehem People-to-People Project. “People who see Israel as the victim here, can see the power, absolute power that Israel wields in Palestine, not just now in terms of the killing, but everyday in terms of the occupation.”

Bostonians Arrested Demanding End to US-Funded Israeli War Crimes in Gaza
DSC_7161.pngBOSTON – A diverse group of 30 Palestinian-Americans, Jewish Americans and supporters dramatized the US funded Israeli war crimes in Gaza with a "die-in" at the Israeli Consulate at 20 Park Plaza in Boston, MA. Demonstrators carried poster-sized images of the recent carnage in Gaza and read some of the names of the over 700 Palestinian dead as a result of US-funded Israeli aggression. Susan Barney, Rick Colbath-Hess, Ridgely Fuller, and Patrick Keaney, were arrested when they refused to leave the lobby of the consulate building, until Israel agreed to an immediate and unconditional ceasefire and to end its 18-month blockade on Gaza, which has prevented Palestinians from having food, medicine and electricity.

Semantics of a Massacre
mike.pngCommon knowledge has come to regard black as white in the "Israeli-Palestinian" conflict. This article is attempting to set the record straight when it comes to the fundamental truths and the political context of the controversy. Israel has invaded and is currently an occupation force in Palestine, Palestinians have a right to armed resistance and what is happening now in Gaza is not war, but pure massacre.

It seems that what is in order for a clear understanding of the struggle between Israelis and Palestinians, is a return to “first principles”, the essential historical causes of the conflict. This is necessary because our perception of the events in Palestine has been suppressed and conditioned by layer after layer of western orientalist propaganda which has brought about in our minds an effective inversion of the roles that each party plays in the conflict.
