[SPECIAL EDITION] Week 65 – How Many More?

Saturday 5th June 2010, outside the Israeli Embassy at a demonstration of 20,000 people, London:

“Five months ago, I was sitting on the beach in Gaza, watching the waves of the Mediterranean lapping onto the shore. If I was to return to Gaza today, the sea would be tinged red, with the blood of the innocent civilians murdered…

On Monday May 31st, at 1.30am, I was sitting on the front steps of a friend’s house in south London, when a man walked past asking for a cigarette. His name was Glen, and he lived in a home for people with mental disabilities just a few doors down. But not even a schizophrenic, would be able to think of an excuse for the crimes that Israel has committed in this week. Not even a lunatic would dare to justify the slaughter of humanitarian workers, as they deliver aid to a besieged population.

This is the greatest tragedy Israel has ever seen. This is the final nail in the coffin. But it seems that the Israeli government are keen to prolong their farewell, so now, we must double, we must triple our efforts. And I ask Mr. Netanyahu, I ask Mr. Obama, I ask, our Prime Minister, Mr. David Cameron… how many more? How many more must spill their blood? How many more must sacrifice their lives? But one thing is for certain… for every one that falls, a hundred will rise in their place, a thousand more will raise their voices in condemnation, and a million more will dedicate their lives to the struggle for freedom for Palestine!”

    Jody,

    Thanks for being the voice of so many of us that work for peace and justice — the Israeli criminals continue their lies and cover it up with charges of antisemitism — but it no longer works. The truth is the truth.
    Big hug,
    Andy

    The U.S. has lost a powerful and progressive voice as Helen Thomas is forced into retirement. Daring to speak out on the genocidal state of Israel is once again, a career buster. Keep speaking out Jody.

    I definetly agree with the qutoe: “When one falls a thousand will take their place.”8) It’s awesome to see there are so many people dedicated to risking their lives for a cause that they are passionate about.
