Using the assassination of the Israeli Minister
of Tourism Rehavam Zeevi as an excuse, the government of Prime Minister
Ariel Sharon has embarked on a wanton military attack of Palestinian
towns, which may continue for days if not months. Prime Minister Sharon
has historically been committed to reckless supremacist and oppressive
This most recent attack represents a policy of
wreaking damage on the Palestinian population, and perpetuating their
34 year occupation, a policy which is considered good for Israel by
the policy-makers in power; and disrupting chances for negotiations,
which are considered bad.
The reoccupation of West Bank cities endangers
the future of both nations, and the stability of the region.
We urgently request your intervention.
