On behalf of European Jews for a Just Peace, a network of Jewish
organisations in nine different European countries, we express our
solidarity and strong support for you, Israeli Air Force pilots, who have
refused to carry out illegal and immoral actions in the occupied
We recognise the strong pressure you are under to withdraw your signatures
from the brave and moving statement you all signed. We hope you will stand
firm. In so doing we want you to know that you have the support of very many
Jews in Europe who are appalled by the policies of the Israeli government
and their violation of the Jewish values we respect of tolerance,
consideration and respect for others, so trampled on as a result of 36 years
of illegal occupation.
We hope the stand you have taken will contribute to bringing the necessary
peace settlement through negotiation that little bit closer.
