The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil,
but because of the people who don't do anything about it

Combatants for Peace:
On November 15, Israelis Will Say `Yes` to a Palestinian State
Because independence for the Palestinians means true independence for Israelis
Join us, a large group of Israelis and Palestinians, in a demonstration of popular democracy, solidarity and hope.
The event will take place on the two sides of the separation wall, on Saturday, 15/11/14 – the Palestinian Declaration of Independence Day.
The event will challenge the validity of the separation barrier in regard to relations between peoples, and will create a constructive interaction between the two communities – an interaction that is intended as a declaration of our support for Palestinian independence. And thereby also free us of the burden of Israeli domination over another people.
At the event we will use giant puppets towering above the wall, and we will be accompanied by a film crew documenting our activities.
Shuttles will depart from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
8:30: Tel Aviv –Central Railway Station complex, Shlomo Sixt car rental parking lot.
9:15: Jerusalem – Teddy Stadium parking lot, across from the Mall.
Please register on the online form:
Please bring your own food and drinks.
Contributions, to cover expenses and ongoing activities of `Combatants for Peace`, will be warmly welcomed.

November 15 is the date of the declaration of the creation of a Palestinian state, a declaration adopted by the UN General Assembly with the support of 104 countries in 1988. 111 countries, including all the Arab countries, most countries in Africa, most countries in Asia, most countries in South America and most Eastern European countries have recognized, in one form or another, the Palestinian Authority as a “political entity”, even though most of them have not acknowledged it as an independent state. 96 of them have formalized diplomatic relations, some with ambassadors. In spite of proclamations by the Chairman and leaders of the Palestinian Authority of their intention to unilaterally declare the creation of a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders, the announcement has yet to be made. Diplomatic activity has resulted in a number of countries including Russia, Cyprus and most South American nations to declare their recognition of the State.
