May God watch over and bless these people. Words can not express my gratitude and respect. They are the ones redeeming my faith in humanity, which is sorely lacking right now.

"Dignity Leaves on Emergency Mission
The Newsletter of the Free Gaza Movement 4/2008, Dec. 29
More than two-hundred, maybe three-hundred people have died in Gaza under the shelling of Israeli military jets. Hundreds are injured. This Sunday, the killing activities have continued. The wall between Gaza and Egypt has now been torn down by Gazans, according to international Human Rights observers witnessing and documenting the Israeli attacks on Gaza. Millions of people in the world are shocked, hurt, and angry about this "Guernica in Gaza", as Vik calls it (see below). In Guernica, the civil population was punished for its democratic elections. The British Committee for the Universities of Palestine (BRICUP) also remembers this incident: "When Nazi planes firebombed the Basque town of Guernica in 1937, to advance General Franco's revolt against the democratically elected Republican government, Britain, France and other European powers continued to refuse military and political support to the Republic, and Franco and his Nazi allies prevailed." (Source: http://www.bricup.org.uk/GazaEmergency.html). Concerning Gaza, there are similar reactions from western powers. Only the citizens in the world, they are not as cold-hearted, and there are demonstrations and rallies going on all over the globe. Search the internet for Gaza demonstrations in your country. The Free Gaza Movement sends an emergency boat to Gaza on Monday, with three tons of supplies. - Also in this issue: Ewa's eyewitness report, a short video on the general situation in Gaza, news about Neta, a calendar date and the quote of the week. The Free Gaza Movement wishes all readers a better New Year. See you in 2009!
