The Israeli seizure and occupation of Palestinian land, and the denial of a Palestinian state, is the root cause of the on-going conflict and the current flare up in Gaza.
The latest Israeli Defence Force assault on Gaza, in addition to its targeted assassinations against political as well as military opponents, is horrifying and disturbing. It threatens to escalate into yet another cycle of violence and war-making that does nothing for the security of Jews or Arabs, Israelis or Palestinians. It merely reaps death, destruction, hatred and mistrust.
Mark Braverman, a powerful Jewish advocate for a just-peace in Palestine/Israel, is speaking at a meeting in Edinburgh (12.30pm, 23 May 2012) sponsored by the Scottish Palestinian Forum in association with the Church of Scotland's World Mission Council.
