Cutting through

Gush Shalom is a large Israeli peace group. It publishes a weekly advertisement in Haaretz newspaper. This ad will be published tomorrow:


On the eve of Sharon’s Texas visit, three unarmed Palestinian boys were killed by the Israeli army.

In retaliation of the killing, which violated the cease-fire, dozens of mortar shells and Kassam rockets were fired, as expected, at Gush Kativ [Jewish colony in Gaza].

Sharon used this shelling in order to convince President Bush that the Palestinian leadership has collapsed and that Abu Mazen should not be supported. He failed.

Remain the questions: Why were the boys killed? Who is responsible? Who will investigate?
