Erklärung unserer Partner in Nahost zu Gaza

Über das International Falcon Movement sind wir mit mehreren israelischen und palästinensischen Partnerorganisationen verbunden. Bei unserer Israelfahrt haben wir auch persönliche Kontakte aufgebaut. Der Krieg im Gazastreifen hat uns also ganz besonders berührt.

Unsere Partner im Nahen Osten haben eine gemeinsame Erklärung geschrieben und uns per E-Mail geschickt. Ihr findet sie weiter unten in Englisch. Eventuelle Kommentare werden wir ggf. übersetzen und unseren Partnern schicken.


Außerdem haben unsere Partnerorganisationen einen gemeinsamen Workshop erstellt, der in den israelischen und palästinensischen Organisationen durchgeführt wird. Er beinhaltet die Fragen, wer im Gazakrieg profitiert, welche Rolle die Medien spielen und wie eine Bildung für Frieden aussehen kann.

We choose Peace, We choose Life

We as IFM-SEI middle east region are deeply sad about the events of the last several weeks in Gaza and south Israel. We have solidarity with the innocent people who are suffering from this ongoing situation in and around Gaza. Violence only breeds violence, and no one wins. Such a cycle of conflict only brings deeper and more prolonged suffering to all those living here. This cycle of violence needs to be stopped, the shootings from both sides have to end. A ceasefire should promote peace and the idea of two states for two nations, not more fighting. Those who do not believe in peace and do not want a real peace are the only winners of this; the right wing in each society is gaining from it and we face a growing nationalism and racism in the societies. The media and the politicians use the despair of people, they use it to put a state of ongoing conflict and war as „normality“ into the minds, which doesn‘t allow to imagine peace as another alternative.
 
Human life is the most important resource of society. Any violence against, or killing of innocent people is eliminating the basic human value.

We as socialist educational movements believe in peace, believe that people should be able to live a human life, believe in human equality, and that there should be two states for two nations next to each other. The reality is unequal, and we fight against it by educational means. As leading group of the IFM-SEI middle east region we believe that we have to change our societies together towards a common future based on human equality, and to raise our voices in order to stop this violence and to put all effort to analyze and resolve the underlying issues that led to this point. In these days the most important thing is to meet and to empower the trust we have as partners and raise up hope for peace in us and our societies. We call all our members to sharpen and educate to moral values of human equality and to analyze the situation, reveal how each side is manipulated and who is gaining from the situation. And to remember that choosing peace is equal to choosing life.
