Appeal to World Public Opinion From Palestinians Under Siege
by International release
6:47pm Mon Mar 10 '03
The following appeal is the result of many frantic meetings and consultations among Palestinian activists, NGO's and political organizations - covering the entire spectrum of Palestinian opinion and including people and groups who traditionally oppose each other, but all united in forming The Palestinian Emergency Committees (PEC),in the face of what may happen during Bush's soon-to-launched war on Iraq.
Appeal to World Public Opinion
From Palestinians under siege
World attention is focused nowadays on Iraq and the effect of the US-led attack on regional stability.Millions of people all over the world demonstrate their opposition to the war and attempt to avert it. However, the message
we, the Palestinian civilian population, are receiving from Israeli officials is threatening us with dangerous consequences.
Statements made over the last two months by both Israeli officials and media indicate what they are proposing, planning and preparing to execute in the Palestinian occupied territories in case of war against Iraq. Such
statements could be meant as intimidation, deterrent or real threat. In view of our past and present experience, we, the Palestinians, tend to see them as a threat endangering our very existence in this land of ours.
The threats published just recently by the Israeli media include, among many others:
-- Imposing a?total curfew on the Palestinian people and land.
-- Declaring the Palestinian territories closed military areas, thus preventing foreign and local journalists from operating in the territories.Such measures are clearly?intended to prevent the public exposure of the possible Israeli actions against the Palestinians.
-- Continuing the Israeli practice of mass detention of Palestinian activists without charges, and the destruction of Palestinian homes and infrastructure.
-- Possible mass transfer of Palestinian civilian population from certain locations adjacent to the proposed Israeli security wall. These areas belong to the occupied West Bank.
--Possible efforts to transfer Palestinians from the occupied territories to neighboring countries.
--Possible elimination of the elected president of the Palestinian Authority, Mr. Yasser Arafat, or his deportation to a remote area.
The Palestinian Emergency Committees (PEC) were established in the Palestinian territories to undertake the specific tasks of organizing the community during the possible war on Iraq, and to highlight the need for Palestinian readiness for possible drastic Israeli measures.
PEC is a coalition of NGOs, national organizations, charitable societies, professional unions, political parties, ministries and public figures, operating
through a coordinating office in Ramallah with national outreach and representation.
We ask you to form an International Committee for the Protection of the Palestinian People, and to take immediate steps to prevent the Israeli government from taking advantage of the situation created by the war on Iraq.
Your support is very much needed and could help in preventing further suffering and pain and the death of innocent Palestinians.

Israeli Statement of Support for the Palestinian Emergency Appeal
Israeli Statement of Support For the Palestinian Emergency Appeal
As Israelis, we strongly support the "Appeal to World Opinion" published bythe Palestinian Emergency Committee.
We call on all people of goodwill to set up urgently an International Committee for the Protection of the Palestinian People.
The dangers posed to the Palestinian population in case of an American attack on Iraq are real and severe.
Extreme right-wing elements in our political and military leadership may try to exploit the war situation in order to commit acts of "transfer". Such acts violate Israeli and international law and endanger the future of Israel.
Peace between the peoples of Israel and Palestine is the only solid basis for the security and well-being of our state.

Stop killing Americans and Israeli's

When you stop supporting the killing of Americans
and Israeli's then we will listen to you and NOT
until. I notice you didn't show pictures of the
Americans you've murdered.
The so called "Palestinians" are the descendents
of those who exiled, murdered and took Israelites
God has seen that you are being repaid.
I love that my substantial taxes go to Israel to
defend against you murderers.
Arabs/Muslims have 99.9 percent of the Middle
Your so called "religion of peace" excludes Jews
and Christians from praying at a place that was
holy to them long before your false prophet ever
lived-YOU STOLE IT.
The gracious Israeli's allowed you to administer
it and look what you do.
You've used ambulances for transporting weapons.
You kill Israeli and American children, women
You are the most hated people in all the earth.
Other Arabs make sure you remain in refugee camps
to foment hatred of Jews.
You are the most despicable people on the earth.

You don't allow independent journalism to show the
truth. What you say and show is only what you
want people to hear.
You have threatened reporters, including
Palestinian reporters. You have confiscated the
films of reporters if you deemed in not in the
interests of destroying the Jewish State. You
and your Arab friends have numerous Islam only
country's and governments yet you claim to have
one little Jewish state is racist and "nazism";
you exhibit the worst of hypocrisy.
You are the whores of the world, taking in Saudi
money and Muslim money to kill Jews and
You sided twice with the butcher Saddam Hussein.
You celebrated September 11th and then
confiscated journalist's films and threatened
You blatantly lie to Americans and others
thinking nothing of it such is your blind hatred
of Jews and Israel.
You have a terrorist Abu Ammar Husseini for a so
Again, I say you are the most despicable of
You may have laughed at Sept. 11th-Now we laugh
at you and yours.
May God destroy all murderers among you.

Even if these people make agreements with your government, be smart, know in advance they will not keep their agreements-they never have kept them. For them agreements are mere strategy/ Remember Husseini saying he wouldn't be a terrorist if allowed back into Israel? He's not only a terrorist still, he is a thief who has lived and put away money that was supposed to be given to the Palestinian people (not to be used for weapons to murder Jews and Americans). These Arabs who, polls have consistently shown, the majority support your deaths and will NEVER live in peace with you. The Islamists will never allow it anyway. This type of people will use any method to wipe you out and know they can do it more effectively if they have their own state.
Even now, these murderers and supporters of murderers are calling for the release of murdering terrorists (they recently released one who has killed both Americans and Jews) to show your "good will".
They have plenty of money and weapons to kill Jews but claim not to have anything for "security"; they are liars. They don't arrest terrorists, they celebrate them.
They stole the land and homes from your ancestors then when you came back, fought and won, they claimed what was rightfully yours was historically theirs. They have lied and lied until whole areas of the earth believe their lies. They are expert liars. They are so expert they even get some Jews to perpetuate the lie. Anyone who wants to know the truth can find it in the history books that aren't written by Jew haters or Arab/Islamic history revisionists. They want to try to disarm you and then do away with you. That was the plan, still is the plan, and will always be the plan. They cry because you tear down the homes of terrorists and their supporters. These murderers try to hide behind their women and children knowing any attack on them will be more food for their propaganda machine and their goals.
Do not expect for them to keep any of their agreements so beware when you make them. Giving them ANY of Jerusalem will be the biggest mistake you will ever make; do not do it. If you do it, you will all (and probably the rest of us)live to regret it.
To Arabs/Muslims who complain about Israel's nuclear capabilities, the US does not consider Israel a threat to them so stop whining about them because it will do you no good. We know that you would try to wipe them out totally if they didn't have them. If that makes you very angry-tough. We have to put up with Pakistan with their terrorist problems having it.
To Palestinians: Stop supporting terrorism because that will NOT get you anywhere but dead. Yes, some Jews will die too. Stop putting hatred and incitement in your textbooks, stop supporting terrorists(Intifada is just another word for terrorism). Your families should not be living on Arab/Muslim blood money. One day, you will have to account for this because God doesn't love you any more or less than a Jew or an American. Your actions will be judged too.
You have NO right to ask for peace, land or anything else while you continue supporting people who murder Israeli's.
If you want peace, you must give peace. If you do not, then die but don't expect sympathy from the majority of Americans while Israel hunts murderers.
