      Press Release 11/14/2012

      *Avnery:

      Netanyahu and Barak have decided to deliberately violate a cease-fire which
      had just been stabilized.

      At the price of great and ongoing suffering on both sides of the border,
      the government's aim had been accomplished: social issues will be removed
      from the public agenda and the election campaign*.

      "Binyamin Netanyahu and Ehud Barak have decided - for the second time in a
      row the State of Israel will conduct general elections under the shadow of
      war in the Gaza Strip. The cease-fire which already started to stabilize
      has been broken deliberately and shattered to pieces. The inhabitants of
      the communities of southern Israel, who just started to breathe freely, are
      sent right back to air raid alarms and to running to shelters" said former
      Knesset Member Uri Avnery of Gush Shalom.

      "At the price of great suffering on both sides of the border, the
      government's aim has been accomplished: the social issues, which threatened
      to assume prominence in these elections, have been pushed aside and removed
      from the agenda of the elections campaign. Forgotten, too, is the brave
      attempt of Mahmoud Abbas to address the Israeli public opinion. In the
      coming weeks, the headlines will be filled with constant war and death,
      destruction and bloodshed. When it ends at last, it will be revealed that
      no goal has been achieved and that the problems remain the same, or perhaps
      exacerbated. "

      Al-Awda The Palestine Right to Return Coalition calls on its members and all
      supporting organizations and individuals to organize demonstrations in front
      of Israeli Embassies and Consulates, Federal and other locations to demand
      an end to the ongoing Israeli aggression and siege of the Gaza Strip.

      On November 9, 2012 Israel's army killed a teenage child playing soccer in
      Gaza and then launched an unprovoked bombardment of the Gaza strip which
      killed seven Palestinians and injured more than 40, and to which the
      resistance responded. Subsequent Israeli attacks led to more deaths and
      injuries and culminated today in the assassination of Ahmed Jabri, second in
      command of Military Wing of Hamas and nine other people throughout Gaza.
      Further, Israel formally announced that it has launched a ground invasion of
      the Gaza strip, saying they'll be in Tal Alhawa within 24 hours. This is an
      area in the middle of densely populated Gaza City.

      We call on all people of conscience to organize emergency demonstrations and
      demand Israel immediately stop its attacks on Gaza. We also demand that the
      Israeli and Egyptian governments immediately END THE SIEGE OF THE GAZA STRIP
      and grant immediate access to all food, humanitarian and medical relief
      supplies without restriction. The strip is home to 1.5 million Palestinians,
      80% of whom are refugees denied by the Zionist state the right to return to
      their homes and lands of origin from which they were expelled by the Zionist
      occupation in 1948 and thereafter. Nearly half of the Gaza population are
      children who along with the elderly and ill remain completely deprived of
      food, water, fuel, electricity, humanitarian relief and medical supplies or
      facilities.
