International Day of Action-Monday July 16th
6.30pm - 7.30pm outside Syrian Embassy, 8 Belgrave Square SW1
Free the Soldiers
Come and stand in solidarity for
- Gilad Shalit (kidnapped 25 June 2006),
- Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev (kidnapped 12 July 2006).
- Also for Ron Arad, Zachary Baumel, Yehuda Katz, Zvi Feldman, Guy Hever who have been missing far longer.
If their names are not as familiar to you, it is because the media and the international community have allowed them to virtually disappear into oblivion. For their families, not knowing what happened to their loved ones is a daily nightmare. Zachary, Zvi and Yehuda have been missing for 9761 days! On October 16 2007 Ron Arad will have been missing for 21 years! Guy disappeared without trace on 17 August 1997 on his way back to his unit in the Golan Heights.
Many governments were active in securing a happy ending for BBC reporter Alan Johnston after 114 days in captivity. But when it comes to the missing Israelis, the silence is deafening.
Israel’s battle of ideas and information: A UK-based website to help people
9 July 2007
Are you crying out for reliable facts about Israel? For well thought-through arguments which can influence other people? Beyond Images is an information-packed website
which is designed to help people inform themselves about Israel, and engage in Israel’s battle of ideas, in a coherent and pro-active way.
The website contains 900 pages of briefings, and questions and answers, which are written in bullet-point form. The website is steadily building up users in the UK, Israel, and other countries.
Beyond Images is a not-for-profit project which is run by a London-based group of volunteers in their spare time and it is independent of any communal or religious group. The project’s director Andrew White works hard to ensure that the project is non-partisan, and can appeal to Jews and non-Jews from across the political, religious and cultural spectrum.
In addition to running the website, Andrew provides seminars for community groups, and in the last two years over 1000 people have taken part (including at Dennington Park in November 2005). For more information about Beyond Images please email Louise Samuel on
