Ad for Peace by Israeli Group

Here is the text of an ad published October 10th, 2008 by Gush Shalom, an Israeli Peace Group:

All our governments
Have assumed that
As long as the American
Support us,
We can ignore the whole world
And oppress the Palestinians.

But no Empire lasts forever
And the message is written
On the Walls of
Wall Street.

The only way of ensuring
The future of Israel:
To make peace with
The Palestinians,
To be accepted by the
Arab world -
And do it quickly,
While we can.

Well - I'm not sure what the walls of Wall Street say (except that the invisible hand of the market is not as magical as advertised), but more power to all those who acknowledge the truth and imperative of peace. (See the link to gush-shalom bottom-right of this page.)
