Dear Chief Rabbi,

We welcome your unequivocal denunciation of the murder of Palestinian toddler, Ali Saad Dawabsha. We are sure that your condemnation is shared by the vast majority of British Jews too. Now we learn that Ali’s father has also died from 90% second degree burns.   It takes little imagination to realise what a painful and appalling death that must have been.

Dear Rebecca Vilkomerson,

 

We are a group of Italian Jews against the occupation of the Palestinian land by the State of Israel, and obviously against the Israeli policies related to this. We are active for the peaceful coexistence of Jews and Palestinians in the land between the Jordan river and the Mediterranean sea, which implies the same rights, freedom and independence for all people, whatever their ethnic origin and their religion. We created our association, Ebrei Contro l’Occupazione (Jews Against The Occupation) in 2001. We oppose, just as well, the mainstream stance of the Italian Jewish Communities: the most uncritical Jewish nationalism, which supports Israel whatever it does.

According to this view, the settlers have violated the 1967 borders, the settlers are stealing Palestinian land, the settlers are engaged in violence and “price tag” attacks against Palestinians. The settlers are preventing peace.

“Everything is different this time,” says Sara Roy. This time, she says, the Gaza Strip cannot simply be rebuilt; the wounds of this last war could prove too severe to heal. The 1.8 million inhabitants of this thin coastal region have no hope of any immediate improvement of their situation following this summer’s Israeli military offensive known as “Protective Edge”.

In a wry, one-finger salute to the palace’s onetime British overlords, nearly all the streets in East Talpiot are named after Jews convicted and hanged as terrorists by the British before 1948.
