We Don't Want You Here

When the cannons stop, when people have time to reflect on the violence and to weep over the lost and the ruin of their homes and lives, will they then realize that it was all in vain?

All the trumpeting, onward to the kill, all the rhetoric of who wins. Well, I say no one can win this war. When you have all gone home to your families or perhaps you have no home left, then those who are bereaved and no longer interest the media will be left with nothing but a ripped-out heart and a constant pain; the recognition that life will never be quite the same. No war ever won peace, only ceasefires until the next time.

Palestinians and Israelis from the Parents Circle -Families Forum came together in the midst of the rockets and bombs to show you the consequence of the madness and to illustrate the possibility of reconciliation.
