My name is Victoria Buch. I
am an Israeli professor of chemistry and a peace activist.
I am writing this letter to support
the appeal of Touchstone for humanitarian help
for Palestinian children, victims
of the recent occupation of Palestine by Israel..
You may be surprised. Why
would a person on the Israeli side ask for help for Palestinians?
My friends tell me that many of
you wish to support Israel, in response to the ugly wave of terrorism
plaguing our country.
So let me explain. First, most of
us would agree that outbursts of violence anywhere on our globe are no
longer a local affair, and that involvement of well-meaning people from
all over the world is needed. We all wish to support the "good guys" and
oppose the bad ones.
The great difficulty is identifying
the people who are worthy of support.
That is the main problem of our
Blood-thirsty leaders and their
minions, who spread hate and paranoia among the credulous public,
exist on ALL sides. They draw strength
from each other.
Ben-Laden provided legitimation
to the US the war-mongers.
September 11 was also a boon for
who now run the government and
rampage Palestine under the guise of "fighting terrorism".
The rampage of Palestine provided
legitimation to Palestinian terrorist leaders,
who send human bombs against
Israeli civilians in buses and cafes.
The violence of the Israeli government
against Palestinians is also used as a pretext by antisemites.
So what should we do?
I believe that we should try to
oppose ALL acts of violence and opression,
whether perpetrated against Palestinians
or Jews or anybody else.
And help all victims of evil, whoever
they are. Taking sides is not the solution.
Acts of kindness are always good,
and a way to return some sanity to the world.
So please give generously
to Palestinian children,
which were traumatized and
made destitute by the surrounding violence.
Do it for Palestine, Israel, and
our whole poor not-very-sane globe.
Respectfully, Victoria Buch
