  2. Physicians for Human Rights – Israel: Gaza health system in crisis

    PHR-IL calls for the State of Israel to stop the military offensive and to avoid at all costs any direct attack on or near the facilities and medical infrastructure and to avoid any attacks on medical and rescue teams and patients: “Out of concern for the lives and welfare of all residents of the area we make a heartfelt and resounding call – stop the fire and stop the incitement. Do not bring before us more victims that require treatment. Put the lives, health and rights of all human beings at the head of your concerns. Do not continue on our behalf with this operation causing further destruction and revenge. It is time to devote the resources and energies that are being directed to war and killing to finally end the occupation and to establish a different vision.

  5. IJV SG Statement on current cycle of violence

    July 10, 2014 by IJV

    We watch in horror and utterly condemn the pointless cycle of violence being stoked by Israel’s ongoing bombing of crowded civilian areas in Gaza, resulting in an escalating death toll, devastating civilian injuries and the continued destruction of homes and livelihoods. We reject the UK government’s one-sided support for Israel’s massive and disproportionate retaliation to the rocket attacks from Gaza and urge instead that it calls for peace negotiations and an end to all bloodshed.

    We need to break free of the divisive and increasingly stifling one-state-versus-two-states straightjacket that tends to polarize debate and in practice ends up perpetuating the status quo — which is a form of one state, albeit an inequitable one. The aim of our proposal is to bring matters to a head and to enable people to advocate equal rights for Palestinians and Israelis, in one form or another, free of the implication that this necessarily carries a threat to the existence of the state of Israel.
