>Subject: [ActLeft] EMERGENCY !
> Dear friend,
>Well-known left-wing columnist Haim Baram recently published the following
>comments about Yesh Gvul and our efforts to promote a criminal investigation
>of IDF deputy commander-in-chief Dan Halutz:
>Yesh Gvul is the most important organisation in the Israeli peace camp,
>pillar of smoke and the pillar of fire going before all the others. I
>with YG activists that there is no prospect of Halutz being dismissed....
> But the purifying sacred labours of Yesh Gvul enable all Israeli humanists
>- and there are many - to sense that they are living in their own country,
>and that they have allies. (Kol Ha'Ir, 26/11)
>Thanks Haim, it's always a pleasure to read compliments, but fine words
>pay the grocery bill, nor do they cover legal costs !
>We are keeping up our legal efforts for a criminal investigation of Dan
>over his approval, as air-force commander, of the dropping of a 1-ton bomb
>on a residential home in Gaza, causing the deaths of 14 non-combattants
>with the professed target, Hamas militant Saleh Sh'hadeh). Our petition
>the Supreme Court to this end is pending. Under consideration is a further
>petition against the appointment of Halutz to his present post (in effect,
>demanding his suspension). We insist that Halutz face criminal proceedings,
>and if the Israeli judicial system is not up to the task, we will seek
>of bringing the case to other courts.
>Attorneys Avigdor Feldman and Michael Sfard do their utmost to lighten
>burden, these legal actions require considerable financial outlay, and
>money is running out !
>To make sure our campaign against war crimes does not grind to a halt due
>to a lack of resources, we are launching an emergency appeal. We call
>you, and the friends who have supported us this far - please give to the
>best of your ability !
