I case you were wondering how I am spending iPeace Day. I will drive now to Beer Sheva, my home town, to pick up my parents and bring them over to my house. My father is 87 and has difficulty walking, my mother is 78. There is just no possible way for them to get to a safe place in the 45 seconds which take a missle to get from Gaza to their house.

Since early this morning 5 Grad missiles fired by Hamas from Gaza hit my home town. One of them hit a class room at my high school (picture on top). Luckily school day was canceled because of the missiles and no one was hurt.

I was hoping for a happier iPeace Day for myself and for all of iPeace Palestinian members. maybe next year.

I refuse to lose hope. We need to find a way to talk to our Palestinian cousins. War will never be the solution.

I wish the rest of you can share your peace happily.

The situation is complex.
Hamas wants the destruction of the Israeli state and that should not be so
Israel always responds to Hamas provocations.
While there is no other place to live in the universe: Palestinians and Israelis have to reach an agreement, that means without destruction or humiliation of some of the two
There is tragedy side by side
The world is tired of this conflict without end
A PALESTINIAN AND ISRAELI AGREEMENT WHERE THERE IS LEAVING WINNERS, preventing EGOS AND RELIGIONS that's the case, from my point of view.
Has to live in peace: Palestine can not send the Israelis to another planet, nor Israel itself.
There is only one planet that is small and very little to share, then there has to be a solution.

Faith united should. If in anymore the God it is lostesso the faith you should unite. The religions don't pursue the faith in an only God. The religions pursue the faith in the conceitedness of whom cultivates her. Every faith in the conceitedness to have the truth thinks about being unique and superior to anybody else Believe. To reconcile needs to be in two. God is not so foolish anyway from consegnore the truth to an only man you call. Prophets of God don't exist, prophets of discord only promoters of Wars exist.

L'Humanité est conditionnée par les enchainements de causes à effets que les peuples et les humains déclenchent pour des raisons qui leur appartiennent.

Seuls les Etres Humains, en tant qu'individus conscients et libres, assumant pleinement leur libre arbitre, peuvent modifier par leurs actes et décisions ces enchaînements et leurs effets.

Si, au lieu de missiles, les palestiniens envoyaient des bouquets de roses sur le territoire israélien, il n'y aurait pas cette escalade de violence sur GAZA, mais un élan mondial de sympathie aurait sans doute fait suite à cet acte impensable.
Si, au lieu de rétorquer par une violence disproportionnée, les Israéliens répondaient par la mise en œuvre à Gaza de moyens permettant à la population de mieux vivre et ouvraient les territoires au lieu de construire des murs............. un soutien mondial leur serait acquis!

Et si, et si...! Les uns comme les autres sont instrumentalisés de part et d'autres par les clans des violents pour gagner peut être momentanément des guerres (et du pouvoir et/ou de l’argent), mais certainement pas pour fonder la PAIX.

L’enfant qui meurt sous les bombes à GAZA et l’enfant qui meurt sous les tirs de Missiles en Israël n’ont plus à se poser de question sur une hypothétique Paix dans le Monde. Ils sont tous deux victimes de la barbarie généralisée de l’Espèce Humaine.

Mais les familles de ces enfants, les mères, les pères, les frères et sœurs véhiculeront une haine intense pendant des générations, de part et d’autre.
C’est ce que recherchent les va-t-en guerre et les idéologues de la violence : instaurer la guerre et empêcher l’éclosion de la Paix.

La Violence entraîne la Guerre
La Non violence engendre la Paix
La Violence entraîne la Haine
La Non violence engendre l'Amour

Puisse l’année 2009 entrouvrir un peu plus les consciences pour qu’un jour nos descendants connaissent vraiment la PAIX HUMAINE.

Courage et Détermination
Pour ceux qui œuvrent.
