End the Occupation

Violence is part of the resistance to occupation. The basic fact is not the violence; the basic fact is the occupation. Violence is a symptom; the occupation is the disease–a mortal disease for everybody concerned, the occupied and the occupiers. Therefore, the first responsibility is to PUT AN END TO THE OCCUPATION. And in order to put an end to the occupation, you must make peace between the Israeli and Palestinian people. This is the real aim, this is the real task.” -Uri Avnery

How many times do we have to reiterate this? The road to peace starts by ending the occupation. No matter what “peace” platform the Occupying State gives out, no concise peace will be achieved so long as they refuse to end the occupation.
