via Daniels Counter – ( Not in the news! Tel Aviv: Anti War protest)

peace demio

This was interesting – Daniel highlights the anti-war protests in Israel on Sunday 16th July – which the mainstream media hardly covered. Also on the 21st of July in Haifa.

“This featured in the Israeli papers Haaretz and Yediot Ahronot, but not on the BBC, Sky or even CNN.

Presumably the existence of a Zionist Peace and Anti War Movement movement in Israel is bad news as it does not fit not the image of ugly Zionism many have, or others who wish Israel to fight Islam for them (U.S.)?

Organizations mentioned :

Gush Shalom Israeli Peace Bloc
New Profile. Movement for the Civilization of Israel
Hadash (Wikipedia on Hadash)
Ta’ayush Israeli / Palestinian Partnership Group
Yesh Gvul (Organization for soldiers refusing to serve in Occupied territories)
The Women’s Coalition for Peace (Palestinian and Israeli)Mossawa, The Advocacy Center for Arab Citizens in Israel.

On 21st of July BBC worldservice for the first time reported on an Israeli Peace demonstration in Haifa the same day
