Early this morning Israeli tanks, supported by helicopters flying overhead, have started with their mad reoccupation of Bethlehem district by digging tunnels to prevent citizens from leaving the town while they come in and do their dirty work.  At two o’clock in the morning they started to make their move into Bethlehem and its surrounding areas.  They started with heavy bombing of the Al Aida and Dheishe refugee camps. The death toll in Bethlehem district is 7, among them a women and a pharmacist who is the director of the Al Yamameh hospital while he was assisting with the injuries from Dheishe refugee camp.
 

The death toll in the West Bank and Gaza up to this minute to 45 martyrs among them many children and women. 

As of this minute Israeli tanks with apaches are continuing with their mad attacks against our people everywhere in Palestine. In Bethlehem, and after the funeral of the two dead that were buried in Beit Sahour cemetery, Israeli soldiers are entering further into Bethlehem and taking over many of the high buildings to install military snipers to shoot their so called Palestinian targets.  The people are terrified and do not know what will happen next.

Sharon is going mad and he is very close to committing another massacre on the scale of the Sabra and Shatilla massacres in 1982 in Lebanon.  Who will stop him? 

Please take action now and demonstrate to your government to stop the killing of our people, to stop Sharon from committing any more deaths.  Where is your consciousness; wake up now and I mean now.  We are terrified, our children are petrified and keep asking questions that I do not have answers for. 

We deplore the madness, the injustice of Sharon and his army. Are you listening to me, do you hear my urgent call for help?

Do you want the toll of Martyrs to be raised even more, where is justice in the world?  Here in Palestine there are human beings who are creations of God and are begging for your intervention and help to stop the dangerous escalation of the political situation. We need your support to stop the aggression against us.  Come and see for yourself what the Israeli soldiers are doing, the most brutal measures against all Palestinians; words can’t describe how bad is the situation in each corner of Palestine.  We call urgently for your help……………..

By the time you receive this email, how many more martyrs will have been added on to your list?

How much louder do I have to be, so you all can realize the seriousness of the escalation of this deadly conflict?

I would like to share with you the latest violation of Palestinian rights that the Israeli soldiers are doing right of this moment.  An alert message was sent out to all citizens in Gaza informing them that the Israeli soldiers have confiscated a Red Cross car and are now using it to enter deep into the town and have killed many Palestinians.
