News reports in the mainstream press usually characterize protesters of Israel's occupation and military attacks in Palestine as "pro-Palestinian", as opposed to protestors from the Voice of Israel faction whom they call "pro-Israel".
As Jews, we love the Jewish justice tradition of the prophets, rabbis, and revolutionaries of European and American tradition (such as Emma Goldman) who promoted a just world and fought against injustice.
We abhor what is being done to the Palestinian people, in our name.
We thought "Never Again" meant Never Again to *any* people.

It is not only to protect the Palestinian people, but also the Israeli people and their presence in that part of Palestine which has become their home (for better or worse), their safety and security in Israel and the security of Jews throughout the world, that we say end the Gaza attack, end the illegal and immoral 41 year occupation of lands acknowledged as Palestinian.

That is the only real security for both Israelis and Palestinians.
