Pepper Sprayed & Pursued in North Tel AvivMoriel Rothman-Zecher - The Leftern Wall - It happened after the demonstration - the biggest in Tel Aviv against the war yet, estimates of over 6,000 demonstrators- had mostly dispersed. The now-familiar group of right-wing demonstrators had worked themselves up into a frenzy throughout the speeches by left-wing Knesset Members and bereaved parents and chants to end the war, end the siege, end the occupation, end the violence. They were screaming: “Traitors!” “Death to Arabs and Leftists!” “You all get fucked in the ass!” The usual. The two demonstrations had been tightly cordoned off by the police, though. And then, after. ak29/7/2014

1,547,207 signatures on the Avaaz divestment petitionAvaaz - "Our governments have failed - while they have talked peace and passed UN resolutions, they and our companies have continued to aid, trade and invest in the violence.

This may not feel like a direct way to stop the current killing, but history tells us that raising the financial cost of oppression can pave a path to peace". As of Tuesday afternoon, 1,547,207 people worldwide had signed the Avaaz onlinr petition calling for divestment from companies involved in the Israeli occupation, and the orgainzers` target of 2,000,000 signatures seems well within reach. ak 29/7/2014

Appeal from the Palestinian Medical Relief Society:PMRS - The war Israel is waging on Gaza right now is not about self-defense, it is not even about destroying Hamas. It is a war about complete control over a territory and a people and it is being conducted with complete disregard for human life. It is a war aimed at destroying the resilience of an entire people – and if we don’t act immediately, if we don’t change the current narrative and reestablish the truth, it might very well succeed this time.-rh 16/7/2014

An open Letter to Israeli academicsDear Friends, These are desperately bad times. The government of Israel, having provoked the firing of rockets by its rampage through the West Bank, is now using that response as the pretext for an aerial assault on Gaza which has already cost scores of lives. An atmosphere of hysteria is being deliberately provoked in Israel, and whole communities are being subject to collective punishment, a war crime. People are dying, and for what? To prevent a unity government of Fatah and Hamas?14/7/2014

Decrying "Brutal Operation Taking Place in Our Name," Israeli Military Reservists Refuse to ServeYael Even Or - Democracy Now - Regarding where I am after 10, 11 years after refusing, I feel that it’s like the situation that you feel that you are walking on a path, and slowly everyone else, or almost everyone else, are disappearing far, far to the right of you. Today we are a minority of a minority of activists in Israel. Of course there are more and more people, but we are still a very, very small minority. We have people that are going to jail. I have a friend who is going to jail on Monday for refusing to enlist with the army. There are now a few people in jail.-rh30/7/2014
