Press Release 11/14/2012


Netanyahu and Barak have decided to deliberately violate a cease-fire which
had just been stabilized.

At the price of great and ongoing suffering on both sides of the border,
the government's aim had been accomplished: social issues will be removed
from the public agenda and the election campaign*.

"Binyamin Netanyahu and Ehud Barak have decided - for the second time in a
row the State of Israel will conduct general elections under the shadow of
war in the Gaza Strip. The cease-fire which already started to stabilize
has been broken deliberately and shattered to pieces. The inhabitants of
the communities of southern Israel, who just started to breathe freely, are
sent right back to air raid alarms and to running to shelters" said former
Knesset Member Uri Avnery of Gush Shalom.

"At the price of great suffering on both sides of the border, the
government's aim has been accomplished: the social issues, which threatened
to assume prominence in these elections, have been pushed aside and removed
from the agenda of the elections campaign. Forgotten, too, is the brave
attempt of Mahmoud Abbas to address the Israeli public opinion. In the
coming weeks, the headlines will be filled with constant war and death,
destruction and bloodshed. When it ends at last, it will be revealed that
no goal has been achieved and that the problems remain the same, or perhaps
exacerbated. "

Al-Awda The Palestine Right to Return Coalition calls on its members and all supporting organizations and individuals to organize demonstrations in front of Israeli Embassies and Consulates, Federal and other locations to demand an end to the ongoing Israeli aggression and siege of the Gaza Strip.

On November 9, 2012 Israel's army killed a teenage child playing soccer in Gaza and then launched an unprovoked bombardment of the Gaza strip which killed seven Palestinians and injured more than 40, and to which the resistance responded. Subsequent Israeli attacks led to more deaths and injuries and culminated today in the assassination of Ahmed Jabri, second in command of Military Wing of Hamas and nine other people throughout Gaza. Further, Israel formally announced that it has launched a ground invasion of the Gaza strip, saying they'll be in Tal Alhawa within 24 hours. This is an area in the middle of densely populated Gaza City.

We call on all people of conscience to organize emergency demonstrations and demand Israel immediately stop its attacks on Gaza. We also demand that the Israeli and Egyptian governments immediately END THE SIEGE OF THE GAZA STRIP and grant immediate access to all food, humanitarian and medical relief supplies without restriction. The strip is home to 1.5 million Palestinians, 80% of whom are refugees denied by the Zionist state the right to return to their homes and lands of origin from which they were expelled by the Zionist occupation in 1948 and thereafter. Nearly half of the Gaza population are children who along with the elderly and ill remain completely deprived of food, water, fuel, electricity, humanitarian relief and medical supplies or facilities.
