Peace in action
author: Blind_guy

in response to ISM not containing peace makers. I know many of those arrested this morning, I went through the ISM training with some of them. And many of them were pacifists and all of them were peaceful. Maybe you don't understand the impacts of the wall but its a pretty big deal to isolate one house between a settlement and a giant 8 meter high concrete wall that doesn't even follow the green line. Now maybe you define peace as making sure every Israeli can live comfortable and forget the fact that they have abused and driven people from thier land and homes "because god told us we could." But the people I know who sit in Ariel believed in peace, true peace for all people... and sniper towers have never been a recipe for peace.
