Israeli anti-Iran war demonstration tonight

Cartoon for Israeli-Iranian peace, by Mana Neyestani

This cartoon by an Iranian, if we would replace the Israeli and Iranian flags on the politicians’ pulpits by other flags, would also be meaningful for other countries where wars threaten to break out.

From the peace movement in Israel:

No to war with Iran!

Today, Monday, 6 August 2012 at 19:00, we will demonstrate outside the Defense Ministry, with the call: Do not bomb. Talk.

Rather than continuing the rhetoric of intimidation, it is time that the State of Israel will agree to join the regional talks, due to be held later this year in Helsinki, where Iran will participate.

Monday is also the anniversary of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima. On this day, the call is made all over the world read: No more Hiroshima, No more Nagasaki!

We join this call and add: the safest way to end the nuclear arms race in the Middle East is to make the Middle East free of weapons of mass destruction.

No attack on Iran. Yes to dialogue!

This video from Israel says about itself:

To the Iranian people

To all the fathers, mothers, children, brothers and sisters

For there to be a war between us, first we must be afraid of each other, we must hate.

I’m not afraid of you, I don’t hate you.

I don’t even know you. No Iranian ever did me no harm. I never even met an Iranian…Just one in Paris in a museum. Nice dude.

I see sometime here, on the TV, an Iranian. He is talking about war.

I’m sure he does not represent all the people of Iran.

If you see someone on your TV talking about bombing you …be sure he does not represent all of us.

I’m not an official representative of my country. but I know the streets of my town, I talk with my neighbors, my family, my friends and in the name of all these people …we love you.

We mean you no harm.

On the contrary, we want to meet, have some coffee and talk about sports.

To all those who feel the same, share this message and help it reach the Iranian people.

Opinion: Sanctions against Iran hurt the people, not the regime: here.

Israeli President Peres Smacks down PM Netanyahu on Iran Attack, Supports Obama: here.

Poll: Israeli Jews oppose a unilateral strike on Iran: here.

Hundreds of Israelis petition IDF pilots: Refuse orders to bomb Iran: here.

No imminent threat of a nuclear-armed Iran, experts say: here.

  3. Israelis stage protest against anti-Iran war rhetoric

    Thu 16 August 2012 13:33 GMT | 15:33 Local Time

    Protesters carried placards that read “Dialogue instead of bomb” “No to war” and “The home front is not ready.”

    Israelis have staged a protest outside the residence of the Minister for Military Affairs Ehud Barak to voice opposition to a possible attack against Iran.

    Protesters on Wednesday night carried placards that read “Dialogue instead of bomb” “No to war” and “The home front is not ready.”

    Tel Aviv City Councilwoman Tamar Zandberg (Meretz) said, “This is the fourth night that we are here. We oppose dangerous adventurism between two people.”

    She added that the war against Iran is not aimed at defending Israel but it only seeks to retain posts.

    The protesters announced that a big demonstration would be held on Thursday in protest at war against Iran.


  4. War against Iran:
    An act of madness.
    A “medicine”
    Worse than the disease.

    The Israeli public
    Knows it.
    The security experts
    Know it.
    But it is still
    Not understood
    By a megalomaniac
    Prime Minister
    And his bankrupt
    Minister of Defense.
