We don't want you here, a powerful video from the Parents Circle in Israel and Palestine

All of us are going through difficult, sensitive and emotional days. But it's time for someone to stand up and say what is on everybody's mind. Even though it hurts.

We invite you to watch, and if you agree with our message we invite you to share and support it. It's important that everyone knows the truth.

Sure, let's not debate anything. Besides the fact that anyone's opinion might be construed as "self-righteous", it's much better not to get the bottom of the problem and try to ascertain the reason why all these senseless deaths happened. Just commiserating together will do the trick all by itself, I presume?

Thanks for sharing. All self righteous commentators - please stop debating at least for a moment

Wonderful concept and catchy slogan, emotionally satisfying, but practically futile since it is not addressing the key reason all these families are bereaving one of their members. That key reason is Palestinian terrorism. As long as the Palestinians remain stuck in the false notion that they are entitled to resort to terrorism to impose their views, let's not nurture any illusions: there will be many new members knocking at the door of this tragic club. Be they Jewish victims killed by Palestinian terrorists or Palestinian victims hurt by Israeli return fire, the source of the problem remains the same: Palestinian terrorism. Face that issue and address it head-on, or else you're wasting your time.

Just re-posted this simple message. A resolution must be found. Too many deaths, unimaginable grief and hurt. I can never truly understand their story and anguish as it is not my lived experience but I can join the countless peace champions to provide alternatives to managing and/or resolving conflict.
