Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu
Minister of Defense Ehud Barak
We, members of Other Voice, from communities
along the Gaza Border, call for the Israeli government to stop playing with our
lives and to immediately begin talking to the Hamas government in Gaza! We are
tired of being sitting ducks in the firing range that serves political
Rockets and bombs do not protect us. We have
tried these war games for enough years, and both the Israeli and Palestinian
populations have paid, and continue to pay, a high price of suffering and loss.
It is time to work for a long-term agreement that will make it possible for
citizens on both sides of the border to live normal lives.
