"Save Palestine" peaceful rally...

Date: Today, Friday, Jan 9
Time: 2 pm
Place: Gather behind Tabung Haji building in KL city, walk to US Embassy
Notes: Wear black, red or white if possible. No children, please.

"It's being organised by a coalition of NGOs who bonded under the name of COMPLETE, which stands for Coalition of Malaysian NGOs Against the Persecution of Palestinians.

A key member of COMPLETE, in her email said: "It is now over two weeks since the savage bombardment of the Gaza strip. Now reinforced with a full-fledged ground invasion, the Israeli forces continue their invasion of this already fragile and helpless land – one of the most densely populated areas on the planet, home to over a million people – despite international outrage and in defiance of all international humanitarian laws.

Standing in solidarity against this barbarity, COMPLETE will be holding a peaceful dmonstration and handing over of memorandum to the US Embassy on Friday (Jan 9) after Friday prayers.

Anyone who wish to rally behind the Palestinian struggle are advised to gather at 2 pm outside Tabung Haji Complex in Jln Tun Razak before proceeding with the walk to the US embassy across the road.

Attendees are advised to dress in black, white or red colours and any other Palestinian symbols (badges, scarves, t-shirts). Please bring along relevant placards/banners/posters.

The time has come for us, as citizens of the world, as brothers and sisters in the human family, as conscientious individuals, to link hands across the divides of race, religion, and nationality, and to stand together against the tide of injustice and speak on behalf of the voiceless. It is our duty, our sacred responsibility, not only to humanity, but to ourselves. Say - ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!" - save palestine now

Am sad that I cant join the rally. May the forces be with you all.

Latest news: the UN Security Council has called for a ceasefire (from both sides) with 14 for it and one, not surprising, the US, abstaining.

As you can see and as I watch the news on TV, diplomacy has failed to change the reality on the ground.

More Palestinians are being killed and more than 4,000 have been injured as Israelis keep bombing Gaza.

The UN relief agency has halted aid after Israelis fired on its convoy - bringing supplies to Gaza - killing one of its aid workers and injuring two others.

And the Israel keep saying it avoids civilians as targets.

How very true..Enough is Enough!!
Are we just suppose to let the massacre and the war-crimes just go fleeting by and only come in to help with the medicines and the relief fund??

How can we stop the mad Jewish leaders who are thirsty for blood?

Are we suppose to mind our business and close an eye on the massive butcherings of innocent civilians??

I pray the US embassy will not laugh off at our peaceful rally.
