      > 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,
      the
      >pillar of smoke and the pillar of fire going before all the others. I
      agree
      >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
      don't
      >pay the grocery bill, nor do they cover legal costs !

      >We are keeping up our legal efforts for a criminal investigation of Dan
      Halutz,
      >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
      (along
      >with the professed target, Hamas militant Saleh Sh'hadeh). Our petition
      to
      >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
      ways
      >of bringing the case to other courts.
      >
      >Attorneys Avigdor Feldman and Michael Sfard do their utmost to lighten
      the
      >burden, these legal actions require considerable financial outlay, and
      our
      >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
