Stop the Killing in Gaza: From Alice in avaaz.org

Stop the Killing in Gaza: From Alice in avaaz.org

Apparently, the US and Israel needed to verify, in the field, their analysis and conclusions on “what after the Arab Spring”.  They wanted to double-check their interpretations of “what might happen if we launch a second preemptive war on Gaza”? And the results, after 100 sacrificial Palestinians killed  and 900 injured, were gloomy to the US and Israel:

First, Israel and the US realized that if it took former Moubarak 21 days to react in the 2009 war in Gaza, it only required less than two hours for Mursi of Egypt to express Egypt position of siding with the Palestinians in Gaza…

Second, Israel and US wanted to verify which regional State power will fill the vacuum after Moubarak, such as Turkey, Qatar, or Saudi Arabia…(since Syria is out of the picture at these critical periods)… And Egypt displaced all the regional powers in negotiating and resolving Gaza problems…

Third, and these tiny missiles of only 90 kilo of explosives reached Tel Aviv and beyond Tel Aviv, and Iron Dome was a disastrous fiction in countering the Palestinian missiles…

Days ago the Israeli military began a bombing rampage in Gaza. An eleven month old baby was killed, and many more are likely to die unless the US and Arab League use their leverage right now. Let’s raise our voices to stop the violence.

The Israeli bombing in Gaza has already killed an 11-month old baby. People have nowhere to hide from the missiles and mortars — Gaza is a prison. 

All mothers can do is stay indoors, put mattresses against windows, and pray for their children.

Israel’s attack may be a cynical move to drum up fear, so that voters reelect Israel’s right-wing extremist government. 

The massive suffering in Gaza will only increase unless global leaders step in to stop it.

With both Israel and Hamas threatening to escalate, it’s likely to get much worse unless the US, which has massive leverage over Israel, works with the EU and the Arab League to intervene. 

The international community has the power to turn this around. 

After Hamas won Palestinian legislative elections in 2006, the US and Israel worked to delegitimize the vote and isolate Gaza from the rest of the world. Since then, Israel had initiated a ruthless blockade on food, oil, electricity, and medical treatment…

And in 2008 Israel launched a full scale military assault, using all kinds of prohibited weapons, such as phosphoric bombs that keep burning on live bodies and after they die.

Impoverished and overcrowded, Gaza’s isolation has fostered resentment and militancy.

No family, wherever they live, should live in fear of rockets or airstrikes. Gaza is already at a breaking point. The attacks by Israel — coming, not by chance, weeks before Israel’s election — are like throwing a lit match into a tinderbox. If the conflict spirals it will see thousands more die and decades more of misery under occupation.

Only immediate action by the international community, led by the United States, can stop this mess and prevent an all-out ground assault. 

Deep-seated conflicts can only be resolved through courage and determination. And politicians only display that when peace-loving citizens come together in large numbers and demand it. The Avaaz community rallied with force the last time Israel pummeled Gaza — let’s do it again now, before it’s too late. 

Click to call on them to take immediate steps to get a comprehensive ceasefire and end the blockade that’s strangling Gaza. Then share this with everyone — let’s make a noise they can’t ignore:
