I've just heard about this emergency campaign urging for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. Already 280 people have been killed in this escalating conflict. Now is the time to issue a demand to world leaders that the spiraling violence that has characterized the Israeli-Palestinian conflict must come to an end. In 2009 let's push for real peace to be achieved between Israel and Palestine. To learn more and to take action, read the email below:

Dear friends,

As we watch the Gaza bloodshed with horror, appalled at how the crisis is spiraling further out of control, one thing is clear -- this violence will only lead to further civilian suffering and an escalation of the conflict.

There must be another way. Over 280 are dead and hundreds more injured -- rockets are striking Ashdod deep inside Israel for the very first time, and the sides are mobilising for invasion. A global response has begun, but it'll take more than words -- the immediate violence won't end, nor will wider peace be secured, without firm action from the international community.

Today, we're launching an emergency campaign which will be delivered to the UN Security Council and key world powers, urging them to act to ensure an immediate ceasefire, address the growing humanitarian crisis, and take steps to build real and lasting peace.1 Follow this link now to sign the emergency petition and send it to everyone you know:

After eight or more years of ineffective US and global diplomacy -- and now Gaza's bloodiest day in recent memory -- we must issue a global outcry demanding that world leaders do more than make statements if they're to bring peace to this region. The UN, the European Union, the Arab League and the USA should now act together to ensure a ceasefire – which includes an end to rocket attacks into Israel and opening the checkpoints for fuel, food, medicine and other humanitarian aid deliveries.

With a new US President taking office in less than a month, a real opportunity exists to breathe new life into peace efforts. These latest hostilities require not only an immediate ceasefire but a commitment from Obama and other world leaders that resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is at the very top of their agendas. As the whole world is impacted by this ongoing conflict - we should demand nothing less.

In 2006 we mobilised for a ceasefire in Lebanon. For years we've worked to encourage a just and lasting peace, taking out billboards and ads across Israel and Palestine. Now as we head into 2009, we need to come together again to demand a peaceful and lasting resolution, instead of a further escalation of violence. Follow this link to put your name forward for peace:

All sides to the conflict will continue to act as they have in the past if they believe that the world will stand by and allow them to do so. 2009 is a year that things can be different. As we face this crisis, and the possibilities of a new year, it's time for us to demand a ceasefire and work together to finally put an end to this cycle of violence.

With hope and determination,

Brett, Ricken, Alice, Ben, Pascal, Paul, Graziela, Paula, Luis, Iain and the whole Avaaz team

Before any violence between Hamas and Israelis soldiers can end, both sides need to lay down their arms and talking to each other. USA, UK, Iran and other Arab nations need to stop arms supply and financial aids to both, instead of shouting their lungs out in UN for cease fire.

Both parties need to renounce violence and terror as a mean to resolve their differences and fulfill their obligations under UN peace treaty and agreed territorial division. By failing to act responsibly and as grown adults, both are guilty of the massacre we see today.

Unfortunately none of their leadership has the mentality like of Warren Buffet who can make make a lot from society but also willing to give a lot back to the needy.

I blame USA government...who could have stopped everything long long ago....but each President dare not.
One or two...did FORCE both sides to talk and seems to succeed.....then all of a sudden...assassinations...order of the day...start all over again.
USA economy is controlled by the Jews...and offending Isreal means big problems for the it Democrat or Republican.
And the war is all about Christianity fighting Islam.
Guaranteed any US President and whole family hired guns...if they protect Palestinians....or the Muslims.
USA is managed by gangsters and Jews.
Lets see what Obama can do.
I have the feeling he is a man for crazy assassinators...just like Kennedy and John Lenon.
For 300 years...Christians and Islam are at war.
Israel and Palestine is our period to witness the on going religion war.
I a so tired of feeling sick and sad...viewing TVs children and mothers many die for no reasons...and I strongly believe Osama bin Laden bombing of USA Twin part of the said war...twisted as terrorists.
Who are freedom fighters and who are terrorists....why and what for..all cleverly mixed American government powerful propaganda machinery.
When come to one can beat the US government..
They can help..they can kill...they can ignore....all in the name of world policeman.
Actually they are policing and defending for USA benefits......thus the double standards....the hypocracies...the label...Satanic carry some weight.

It has been tried over and over and over again for only GOD known how many times, both sides continue to sign peace treaty , then forget about their obligation under the treaty, Hamas continue to use terror and trying to provoke Israel, and ended up getting Palestinian civilians kill by hiding among them during Israel retaliation, then war start for a while, then stop after international community intervene, hot heads gotten cool down , after a while, same provocation start all over again!!!!

Perhaps a brief info on this conflict is useful knowledge:

A true Malaysian said...

As long as both Palestinian and Isreali have no wisdom of ‘forgive and forget’, conflicts between them could not be solved, however powerful, merciful and compassionate they claim their God to be.

Put aside your ‘God’ and solve your conflicts by ‘forgive and forget’. If you guys cannot do that, go ahead, keep on fighting and revenging.

monsterball said...

What brief info do you need?
Since the time of Salladdin ...fighting that famous Pope....Michealangelo's ling is that?
And Queen Constantinople had the fighting stopped for awhile...then all started again and again.
Talk about Christianity and Islam....fighting each's a never ending story...when Abraham had a son by a Jew and another by a Egyptian slave....Ishmael and Isaac.
It's been written..done and not yet finished.....hahahahahhaha

monsterball said...

Only wise people forgive each other?
hhhhmmmm....Mao is not wise...and Bush is not cunningly wise.
In need to be too wise..with so many Chinese two timers.
Just expose them...never trust them...easy to teach 2 million young voters...for or against.

monsterball said...

After all..forgive and forget are taught by all holy holy people.
How many cunning Malaysian Chinese really practice that?
ah expose them...they will become good snakes...and talk holy holy too. But snakes are snakes....too dangerous to keep as pet friends...unless you are a snake catcher me.......hahahahahaha

monsterball said...

If one keep quoting RPK...hero worship RPK...then he must at least BEHAVE like without clearly against UMNO and BN..if dare not walk all talks.
No...quote RPK...and talk like a MCA/Gerakan so call..nice and cultured holy holy guys.
Monsterball is going to hell for sure.....and enjoy..strip tease shows Rose Chan....that is...if someone can show me where is hell and Heaven with a King....old like Satan Claus...young like beloved Jesus..and one like Casper the friendly ghost...not three people..but one...hahahahahaha
Only these people seen Heaven?
Are they dead...come back like the Tibetains??
Talk holy holy....makes me mad!!

monsterball said...

Justin...did you see a snaky two timer at Doc's blog comment...inviting me to respond?
Did you he self praised himself?
And best of all...praise chilipadi sky high!!
Young voters can now...understand something about a two timer...sweet talking loving "Malaysia Chinese.
He will teach you you nothing....but bout life....but on politics...he will teach you to agree to disagree.
He will teach to a smart racialist....indirectly supporting MCA/Gerakan.
But in some of his messages...he will also go against them...when the heat is on....meaning..he knows it won't the
"agree to disagree" mode is on.
Do you want to lean to be cunning and selfish.....or to do want to learn to be men at work...produce and be recognized and respected?
This two timer and are are not working for anyone....but we do have staffs to support.
I am a businessman with experiences in production by factory .now close down...and trading by sales and admin staffs....on going...for 40 years.
The Chinese two timer is a self employed accountant.
So pick your choice....who can guide you to a better life.

monsterball said...

CORRECTIONS....on my above message!!!...
1..."but bout life" should be...."but about life".
2."want to lean about life"..should read.."learn about life....".
3."two timer and are are not working.." should read...."two timer and me are not working...".
Should have read and post..but clicked too soon...sorry!

monsterball said...

And to sum up all...a blog owner who dare not put out his face...not even a write up...who he is..what profession.....speaks volums of such a Chinese two timer...character.
Scared to show the face..yet talk cock and bull...instigate...put out post to carry show he is supporting change of government....and then...advising stay on agree to disagree mood.

Madness is nothing new between this two neighbors,and also in middle east; until their population become more educated and civilize, willing to reject their leaders who advocate & embrace violence and terror as means of solving problem, world community will continue to see war in that region.
When you have two very hateful people of different culture and religion living side by side, deep rooted hatred of each other for many century, refuse to give any chance for peace and only interested in war, who can really stop them if they choose not to grow up and be responsible for their own action?
We have a Dr M who used to spread hatred about our neighbor 'Singapore, hoping for war , thank goodness majority of Malaysians rejected him, that is why we have everlasting peace with our neighbors.

Palestinian authority want to test Israel resolve, allowing terrorist group carrying out attack within its territory, hoping for lame response; obviously, they miscalculated. Israel is no India, where Pakistani terrorists are allowed to walk and operate freely in Pakistan even after carried out their terror strike in India.

In order for PEACE to work, both countries must WANT peace, commit to peace process and treaty, willing to give their younger generation a shot for the PEACE, forget about GOD cursed on Isaac and Ismael,put their millennium's animosity inherited from Abraham aside for a few days, start to grow up and behave like one, then HOPE probably will come to them!!!

Isreal and Palestine are gone case...unless...USA..and few powerful countries like Japan .China...Germany...Italy...Britain...and few more..lead by USA sincerely....all go there..sit with both parties...and talk real peace.
Leave it alone to USA...Jews in USA will start another USA......if the government or help Palestians in any which ways...that makes Christianity loose land or the Muslims.
It's a downright religious war.
Muslims are fighting a Jihad they are not afraid to die for Allah.
That's how crazy they are now.
That's years and years of change.
Isreal??......well the sincere ones trying so hard to compromise...nearly succeeded ...all are side lined or assassinated.
Once close to will get an Isreal sinful politician to fan more fire. Have w not seen that before?
This is not a case...of growing up.
This is a case of hypocritical political and religious leaders.
This is a case..whee China and Japan may say......why should they interfere...when USA..applies double standards.
This is a case....that is not important for USA to defend...because there is no oil.
This is a case where..USA..govt is that land is priceless and worth much more than protect and preserved for all mankind.
This is where Christianity is loosing it's grip in vast majority US citizens fed up...and ignore church going....weekly.
The end results....more level headed and voted for complete change.
Lets see....what 2009 will bring to those poor helpless so many poor countries...where stealing cheating and corruptions...playing dirty politics..are more important than lives.

Malaysia will never be at war with matter how much Mahathir and future devilish politicians try hard to do.

bow said...

The Iranian proxy Hamas is a butch of cowards that hiding inside Palestinians civilians housing after firing the rockets into Israel, how can they not afraid to die for allah? Hiding behind children and women are the bravest act you can expect from them, hahahha....they need to act like man rather than chicken.

monsterball said...

When they are at war..non stop for more than 30 years and all citizens are around 40 years old....they are more human.
Isreal irritates them...confused them...leaders are their own skins...citizens become not educated...what do you expect?
The one think that baffles me UMNO talk so much about Islam..yet do not send soldiers to defend their brothers... sister children...all being slaughtered.....right infront of their eyes.
I am sure...UMNO will say..those are not the Muslims ...that Malaysians are so.
Such great twisters!

Palestinian had been used by those Islamic countries like Iran , syria ,Saudi Arabia etc. as proxy for attacking Israel for century, each suicide mission will be paid several hundred dollars for their family left behind, using others to die for them is Islamic way for the Arab, only those foolish Palestinians will continue to believe the fairy tale of these Arab and thinking paradise waiting for them while dying for allah by attacking Israel; it is a common knowledge among us.
