Below is a link to an online petition (gunning for 500 signatures) that suggests to create an International Peace Keeping Force in the Gaza Strip.
Even though Baroness Ashton has outrightly dismissed the idea, I believe (as i'm sure a lot of you do), that such a force would help the people of Gaza to rebuild their lives, would help improve the Palestinian economy, would decrease Palestinian hatred for Israel, would increase the safety of Israelis living in Southern Israel and would allow for opening of borders so that people can walk about in peace - and that's coming from a Jewish perspective in Jerusalem. If the government of our country (G.B.) is willing to put our troops in unnecessary danger in Afghanistan - and has any ounce of compassion for human rights - surely, this is an option that cannot simply be ignored?
I hope as many of you will sign and circulate this as is possible. With regards to you all,
