You are welcome to participate in The Interfaith Freedom March on Saturday, August 02, 2014. The group will set out at 1:30 pm at the Main Square, Abu Baker Street, Jenin, West Bank.
My friends, it’s no longer possible to say, “Ah, that’s the other side of the World, what does this place have to do with me, my family, my world….”
The people in the Holy Land, Muslims, Jews and Christians alike, are enshrouded by deep suffering, terrible restrictions on freedoms, limitation of circulation, restricted access, unfair confiscation of land, etc. Whenever that happens in the World, we all suffer because I truly believe, my friends, we are all connected.
When they are free (of suffering, etc.), only then can we be free!
Moreover, removing most of the West Bank settlements, would help in diffusing the tension accelerating since 1967. In addition, we advocate lifting the blockade of Gaza and to allow those living there access to necessary medicine, medical care, building supplies, etc. and to enable Gazans to circulate in the world, to live a normal life.
It’s time we all do something about it, in an effective, non-violent way.
Let this march be a precursor to freedom through love and understanding by bringing all people together, as brothers and sisters and as children of the creator, showing the world that all people want peace in Israel and Palestine.
