Way Forward Peace through Ceasefire, Dialogue--Mairead Corrigan Maguire

Peace People Call for Fair Response to Palestinians
Maired Corrigan Maguire's words
Excerpt, editing for TIN by 
Carolyn Bennett


he Palestinian people have issued a call (we must answer)  for the support of the world’s people, asking us to stand with them.

Palestinians point out that the United Nations Security Council (permanent members U.S. UK, China, Russia, France) paralyzed by the United States will not send an observer mission so they have appealed for peace observers to go to Palestine to tell the world what is really happening to their people under Israeli military occupation. 
·     Western Leaders and mainstream media have come up with disingenuous statements repeating Israeli disinformation and blaming the Palestinian victims. 
·     Biased against Palestinians, these leaders and media outlets continue to tell the Israeli narrative. 
·     If Palestinians and Israelis, indeed the Middle East region are to be saved and to move toward peace, it is time that Israeli propaganda be shown for what it is – war propaganda. 
·    This is not an Israeli fight to stop Hamas-- who are not the aggressors. 

·      Israel has answered every occasion for dialogue with military attacks on Palestinian civilians. 
·     Israel has chosen land [grabs] and continues to annex Palestinian land, demolishing Palestinian homes. 
·      The war Israel is waging on Gaza is not about self-defense. 
·      The war Israel is waging is not about destroying Hamas; it is a war about complete control over a territory and a people and it is being conducted with complete disregard for human life. 
·      It is a war aimed at destroying the resilience of the Palestinian people whilst, all the time, illegally confiscating their land. 

Maired Corrigan Maguire
eace is possible.

An immediate ceasefire together with dialogue is the only way forward.

We owe it to our
Palestinian and Israeli brothers and Sisters who are working for peace and a nonviolent solution to answer their call …. Let us together as civil community around the world continue and increase our efforts to demand mainstream media talk about the real issues and reach out to all people of conscience in Europe and in the United States and elsewhere to support the Palestinians in their struggle for human rights and International law.

“She called on the BBC, and world media to give factual, fair and balanced reporting in order that people can be informed and not continue to be subjected to Israeli propaganda. Maguire also called for an immediate ceasefire and dialogue ‘as the only way forward.’” Mairead Corrigan Maguire is in Peace People press release July 14, 2014, http://www.peacepeople.com/?p=456

pdate on Israel's massacre in Gaza

RT: “Israeli tank strikes on Gaza hospital kill 4, scores injured – medics,” July 21, 2014, RT, http://rt.com/news/174408-israel-hospital-strike-gaza/

The IDF (Israel Defense Forces) death toll from the hostilities in Gaza has risen to 25, with seven Israeli soldiers killed in the last 24 hours (Haaretz). Since the operation began 14 days ago, the death toll in Gaza has reached 508 with 3,130 wounded.

Press TV: “Israeli forces killing Gazans with lethal shells: Rights group,” July 21, 2014, http://www.presstv.com/section/3510202.html

Medics say some Palestinians in the besieged enclave have been wounded by a new type of weapon that even doctors with previous experience in war zones do not recognize. Israel had also used depleted-uranium and white phosphorus shells in the besieged region during their previous assaults. This is while Israeli tanks and warplanes keep pounding the besieged enclave. At least 78 Palestinians were killed on Monday alone. 
This brings to 549 the total death toll from 14 days of Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip. Over 3,000 Palestinians have also been injured in the onslaught. The majority of victims have been civilians--including women, children, and the elderly.
