with increasingly somber expectations the "ultimate hour of truth" of the Oslo
process it was very refreshing to read the "Message to the Israeli and Jewish
Public" signed by some hundred Palestinian intellectuals among them a lot of
public figures. Did you already see it? If not, you find the
complete text, including the signatories here.
As a reaction all
kind of initiatives sprang up. There is an initiative to get this
published as an ad in Ha'aretz (more about this: Sergio <firstname.lastname@example.org>),
a Hebrew translation was made (ask Roni <email@example.com>)
- and there has been produced "an Israeli answer" among whose initiators was Uri
Avnery and which is also intended for publication (coordinator: Asher <firstname.lastname@example.org>).
While some slightly
different versions are circulating, attached is the definite version of
Israeli Answer". Those who have problems opening attachments can find the text -
together with the Palestinian appeal - on the Gush Shalom site
