"GUSH SHALOM" - "THE PEACE BLOC"




THE REVERSE SIDE OF ISRAEL :

Gush Shalom
(Translated from Hebrew, the name means "The Peace Bloc") is the hard core of the Israeli peace movement.


Often described as "resolute", "militant", "radical" or "consistent", it is known for its unwavering stand in times of crisis, such as the al-Aksa intifada.

For years now, Gush Shalom has played a leading role in determining the moral and political agenda of the peace forces in Israel, as well as in breaking the so-called "national consensus" based on misinformation.

The photos above are from the recent demonstration in Tel Aviv.

Here some slogans used at that demonstration:

"Enough killing in Haifa, Beirut and Gaza!"

"The Olmert-Peretz Government is Committing War Crimes!"

"Stop Killing Civilians", "Exchanging Prisoners is Better than Digging Graves"


Gush shalom

Thanks Castor,

You continue to broaden my horizons.

Funny how we never hear about these in the news over here.

There are always many sides to a story and it is only those who see them all that can make proper choices.

Sure, the current potentates of the USA and Israel don't want the existence of "Gush Shalom" and try to hush it up, that's it...

Covering up was never the solution, isn't, and shall never be, as long as there will be people who aren't willing to fall in the many traps - and craps - of nowadays Western media.
Keep up the wonderful work, Castor!
You are a «whole» artist (Gesamtkünstler)! :-)

Yes, and it is so harrowing that people of the "Western World" aren't really interested in that what happens at the moment in Lebanon, as we can see here according to the number of the comments.
I couldn't immagine that people could be so obtuse, nearsighted, ignorant, and without any sence of justice.
Sometimes I am really thinking to live now again under a Nazi-Regime which has become a global-dimension!

We are living in a time where the falsification of the history and other political lies are paticulary en vogue, like in the Third Reich where the majority of the Germans didn't lift a finger for the justice as long as they could live in economic wealth.

This ethical misconduct has become now a global behavior pattern.
And innocent children must die for the economic wealth of some unscrupulouse criminals ...
