American Jews Call for Immediate Ceasefire, End of Gaza Blockade


Expressing views that are surely representative of American Jews as a whole, here's what some American Jews are saying about the violence in Gaza.

J Street has a petition demanding that the U.S. intervene to bring about an immediate resumption of the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas; the petition also calls for lifting the blockade of Gaza.

The petition says:

I support immediate and strong U.S.-led diplomatic efforts to urgently reinstate a meaningful ceasefire that ends all military operations, stops the rockets aimed at Israel and lifts the blockade of Gaza. This is in the best interests of Israel, the Palestinian people and the United States.

Brit Tzedek v'Shalom has an action alert asking folks to write to President-elect Obama, insisting that he speak out now and call for an immediate cease-fire and humanitarian aid to Gaza, noting that he has spoken out on other issues. As Representative Barney Frank pointed out, "Obama says we have one President at a time, but I'm afraid that seriously overstates the number of Presidents we have right now."

Americans for Peace Now is asking its supporters to write to President Bush and President-elect Obama in support of a ceasefire and humanitarian relief for Gaza.

Jewish Voice for Peace condemned the Israeli attacks on Gaza, calling for an immediate end to attacks on all civilians, whether Palestinian or Israeli, and noting that the blockade of Gaza is a violation of humanitarian law and has been widely condemned around the world. Meanwhile they have been organizing support for Israeli high school students who have been imprisoned for refusing to serve in an army that occupies the Palestinian Territories.

The overwhelming majority of American Jews voted for Obama - just as the overwhelming majority of American Jews opposed the Iraq war. Let's pull for President-elect Obama to heed Brit Tzedek v'Shalom's call to speak out now.

Thank goodness from this strong statement!

In case you missed it . . here are important links If Americans Knew:

If Americans knew... http://www.ifamericansknew.org

The most propagandized country
on earth, the US

Sixty years of massive, ongoing, coldly calculated human rights abuses against the Palestinian people.

That's the legacy of the State of Israel.

Americans pay the bills for this tyranny and our hopelessly corrupt news media and elected officials go along with it because it's politically expedient.

We have yet another "Israel under alles"
president headed to the White House
- and the Israeli war party knows it.

Thus their recent savage and very
public bombardment of civilians in
Gaza by the Israeli military.

Recall the Israeli war machine would be out of money in three months without constant US subsidy.

What will President Obama do about this
latest display of savagery by the Israeli war party?

Let's see...

He picked Hilary Clinton as his Secretary of State...
and Rahm Emanuel, dual US-Israeli citizen and son of an Israeli terrorist, as his chief of staff...

It doesn't look good.

I'm afraid we're going to find out that
selling "hope" is not unlike selling "soap,"
the only difference being people who sell soap actually deliver something.

The only unequivocal promise I heard Obama make during the campaign was to support Israel and my guess it that's the only one he's going to keep up.

America needs to wake up.

Since Jews have such a vested interest in Israel, they are the ones who should speak out against these terrible crimes that are being done in their name. Of course, all of us, and especially Israel first Christians, are responsible for what is going on with the agreement of our so-called human rights loving country. (Bush and Cheney have exposed that lie.)

It is heartbreaking that so much evil is being done in the name of people who have experienced those kinds of evil themselves.

Thanks to David for not censoring our AIPAC /Likud rants.
This has allowed these beacons of peace to shine through instead.

""Obama says we have one President at a time, but I'm afraid that seriously overstates the number of Presidents we have right now."

... there's wisdom for you, not that wisdom is noisy-enough for the mainstream...

Did you see this gem yankhadenuf:

This is one of the most succinctly written recent pieces I've seen on the "terrorist collusion"...

And this surprisingly beautiful smack-down of Scarborough
by Brzezinski on MSNBC:

http://crooksandliars.com/node/24918

I cried in prayer for the People of the ME last night against the tyrants of the US and Israel, and this will be the theme of our own New Years celebration: We will mourn the death and destruction and commit to 2009 peace.

It is insufferable for me to "party" knowing what my government fascists are doing in my name!

"Terrorism is a normative term and not a descriptive concept. An empty word that means everything and nothing, it is used to describe what the Other does, not what we do. The powerful – whether Israel, America, Russia or China – will always describe their victims' struggle as terrorism, but the destruction of Chechnya, the ethnic cleansing of Palestine, the slow slaughter of the remaining Palestinians, the American occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan – with the tens of thousands of civilians it has killed … these will never earn the title of terrorism, though civilians were the target and terrorising them was the purpose...."

I did not make much personal resolution for myself this New Year's channing , just one, only to be more organized. But I hope I throw myself into the cause of peace more in 2009, whether I have reached my own "goal" or not, this messy business of the world is the highest priority, as human life always is and should be. I wish this was a better and more appropriate day to say this, but it is a hope for the future too, Happy New Year channing and all.

ARREST BUSHCO & RICO PNAC/FARA AIPAC...PNAC is Bush/Cheney's "Helter Skelter" !

UNITE IN SOLIDARITY !!!

Thank you yankhadenuf for your many contributions the past year, I'll look forward to joining you in our continued pursuit of the Bush War Criminals.
