I just got this in from Gush Shalom's Adam Keller - please help to disseminate this widely - thanks a lot!



Friday, August 1, 9am, the Peace Bus will leave Jerusalem, carrying medicines and clothes, as well as flowers, intended for the people of Gaza. Also postcards written by Israelis and addressed to Gazans, trying to bridge the terrible abyss. En route the bus will go through Tel Aviv and Be'er Sheba and visit the Israeli communities on the Gaza border.

Please come on board to make the message of the Peace Bus stronger and to meet people living on the border of the conflict region. Presenting a message of peace in the conflict zone is of vital importance, as is maintaining touch between Israel's center and perphery - to stay together.

Collection of medicines (everyone has some new, unused medicines he or she doesn't need, which can be donated to hospitals in Gaza), money for medicines and clothes started already on Sunday. Contact and will make an afford to come and pick up your donation. All donations will be delivered to Gaza by our activists.

Write a postcard with a message of peace for Gaza or if you are far: send the message via email. We need them by the end of the next week. We will translate all messages in English and Hebrew into Arabic.
For Thursday, July 31, 6pm, Jerusalem, is planned DEMONSTRATION at Kikar Safra, (Jerusalem Municipality Square), and decoration of the Peace Bus with flowers

We are ready to come on the 3rd Journey and deliver medicines to the people in Gaza (we start collecting the medicine and the money to buy medicines in order to provided both direct and symbolic support from Israelis to the Gazans during the humanitarian catastrophe). Let's take a one day break, collect energy and start Sunday with some ideas and actions. First things first - we need to contribute ourselves and find foundations supporting our project ...

We just got back from the town of Sderot on the Gaza border, where on our 2nd bus journey we visited families who support peaceful solution of the conflict and were inspired by conversations. We've been also on a our condolences visit to a Bedouin camp next to Dimona, where a part of a rocket fired by Hamas (after the rocket was intercepted, but some shrapnel fell down) killed a Bedouin man and wounded his children. It was a good journey and more will follow. I apologize, folks, that the web-radio broadcasting came short this time, some technical stuff we'll have to learn how to solve.

Our vision is to create the reality where Palestinians and Israelis can live in peace and dignity. We are not offering political solutions nor do all of us have a common political view. We do not have ready recipes. But what we a certain of is that we cannot continue hating, fighting, killing each other. In 66 years of war we could not achieve any permanent solution - we believe that it's time to try a different path.

On the Peace Bus we promote principles of tolerance, understanding and non-violence. People of all religions, colors, nations, genders come together in the loving attitude to see what the media is trying to hide away from us a true face of the so called "enemy". In the eyes of an Israeli and Palestinian child you will discover innocence and remember yourself once being a child, free from prejudices and hate. In this moment we mourn for all those who perished during this unnecessary and tragic conflict: not just in the current one, but for all the innocents who lost their lives in the war of hatred.

We want to see the perspectives of both sides: suffering of Palestinians and Israelis alike. We are all human beings who happened to be raised as enemies. And this is a real tragedy. We can not live in peace as long as other side is suffering. Therefore, the PEACE IS OUR COMMON GOAL!

It is important to keep aware that there ARE Israelis who care about justice for Palestinians and their human rights. I'm glad you also shared the Gush Shalom/ Breaking the Silence Peace Bus info, Eleonora - they had 512 people signed up as of yesterday evening ...

It is the Zionism mindset that is causing all the up-rise in the world. Miko Peled has an open heart & mind that we are all one humanity & we must love each other. Hatred has no place anywhere in the world. All of humanity is born with the same equal rights, human right & dignity.

Thanks, I'll look at this video later on today. As I haven't watched it I've not much to comment on except this is now a humanitarian crisis and the bombing MUST stop. There is no water, no electric, food sources must be at an all time low. Innocent women and children are caught in this mess, the Elders can not endure without medications so this MUST end. Must these people be bombed into dust?

Henriette, the Israeli mindset is why ISIS is attacking Iran, Iraq, and Syria?

Thanks Sandra. Here's another one that may give the Israelis a reason to stop committing war crimes.

A demand to charge Benjamin Netanyahu with crimes against humanity is making its way to the president of the International Criminal Court.

I finally had a chance to watch the video of which I give good credence to as it is done by someone that would have much credibility.....rather than someone's hearsay or opinion by someone who hasn't lived it. It was a long walk for him to get to this place, that I also appreciate, that it wasn't arrived at without taking the time to fully work it out in the mind, clear through the emotions, and find historical facts.

I HIGHLY recommend watching......even if you "think" you know it all anyway.
