Thousands Take Part in Largest Israeli Peace Rally Since Gaza Assault
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s comments came one day after thousands of Israelis rallied in Tel Aviv in support of negotiations with Palestinians. It was the largest peace rally inside Israel since the assault on Gaza began on July 8.
Yariv Oppenheimer, Peace Now: “We came to demonstrate in favor of a political solution between Israel and the Palestinians. We think that the war is not helping anyone, is harming both Israel and the Palestinians, and the way to solve the conflict both in Gaza and in the West Bank is only by reaching a political agreement on the basis of the two-state solution.”
We’ve all seen the scary headlines, the awful killings, the seemingly endless warfare, not just in Israel, but in an entire region — it’s time to make it stop; and it looks like the demonyms of Israel have had enough, as well. After all they are the ones getting killed here.
