Today we had a very unpleasant experience, and quite a horrible day. We can continue with our everyday life and activities mostly thanks to your support and love.
Hannah wrote below a short report to send to you and to as many people as we can.
Hi friends, how are you? we are having a terrible day today. while we were demonstrating at our regular WIB square, 30-40 people in all, we were bombed on both sides. it felt like being targeted from close. we had to abandon the vigil and look for shelter. we came back 20 min. later and completed the vigil on time. As we were travelling home there was a second attack and we had to stop the car and look for shelter. When we came home we opened the newspaper to read letters of women from Lebanon. The devastation is horrific. Has Israel gone crazy or have we not noticed what a mad country we live in? It is 17:45 now and we had two attacks since then. I am off to our daily demonstration on WAW Women Against War in front of the Foreign Office and all the foreign press. We will not be silenced. War must be stopped now. every min. counts as people’s lives are under danger. do all you can to stop this madness. only someone from outside could put pressure on Israel to stop. i have to hurry. be well and let’s pray for better days.
