Help to stop the next war! Support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions of the Israeli regime

Support Palestinian universities – spread the BDS campaign – it is what people under the Israeli jackboot  ask  you to do!

Israeli War Criminals – to the International Criminal Court, NOW!

Israel coninues the illegal and immoral blockading of Gaza, witha show of pig-headedness which defies reality. The rest of the world is not too excited either – there is no real pressure on Israel to stop this brutality, so why would they? Help to bring Israel to the international dock by Boycott, devestment and sanctions!

‘Five rockets’ fired into Israel: BBC

Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip have reportedly fired five rockets over the border into Israeli territory but there is no indication of casualties. One rocket damaged a school in the southern city of Ashkelon but the building was closed at the time, the Israeli military say.A second hit open ground outside the city and three fell just beyond Gaza without causing damage, they add. There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the attacks. Both Israel and the main Palestinian militant group in Gaza, Hamas, declared unilateral truces after Israel ended its three-week Gaza offensive on 17 January. Several rocket strikes and other attacks from Gaza have been reported since then, apparently involving smaller militant groups. Israel has responded with air strikes.

Olmert has only one button – ‘more force’. He is impervious to the fact no amount of murder will achieve his aims. He wiull cxertainly kill more people in Gaza before he vacates the stage in favour of the next brutalist.

Delegations from each side, and other Palestinian groups, have agreed to set up committees to look at forming a unity government and holding elections.
