gaza fortilla/'human factor'

thx for your responses. may God help us to help the oppressed and the oppressors (by trying to divert them from oppression)
I have been away on a weekend intensive course on 'human factor' given by an RAF professional to nhs doctors regarding human error, personality understanding & relationship, behaviors during conflicts etc. a very useful content. I suppose many of us must have had at our religious and other professional scenarios.
(i was wondering if we cud also organize for our faith and interfaith bodies? as surely we deal not only with each other but also with a vaste variety of public factor)

was just watching the cumbria victims' service and it's so touching to see & hear the verses from the revelations and an extensive and detailed service based on the strength of faith that is crucial during these difficult times. again I feel that we as faith bodies have a critical role to play to comfort the public during these stressful times of financial and other difficulties and stresses so that such tragic events could be avoided.

may God be with our sincere and joint efforts to serve His people and look after ourselves and each other too. amen


another peace message from mj I keep hearing from children:)

"what about us??
the heavens are falling down
what hv we done to the world
look wat we hv done
did u ever stop to notice
all the dead children from the war

i always used to see beyond the stars
now i dont know where we are
but i know we have drifted far....."

Dear All
I thought you might be interested in reading what I am saying to the congregation tonight in my sermon. I am trying to say two things.. that being surrounded by people who express hatred and the wish to 'wipe you off the face of the earth' makes Israel extra conscious of security needs and not to take chances, whatever the international response, but also that the loss of life is a tragedy to be avoided and that the ordinary civilian population in Gaza are the people who really suffer and need help
I do think that we as a group can perhaps transcend boundaries and talk about things on a level that most groups are not set up to do
Sorry I won't be with you guys for the next meeting but do think we need to follow up together
Love to all
you may write to jelen on

Dear Henna -
As always, thank you for your thought provoking message.

I think it is fair to say that we are all deeply troubled by any loss of life. I can just say for myself, that the hardest thing for me is that it often seems to be a counter-productive situation.

Palestinians are suffering deeply because they cannot get basic supplies. Israelis are afraid that the Hamas-led Palestinians will attach them so they want to control what goes into the area. How do we support both sides so they can feel safe and looked after?

I know our next meeting won’t give us time to reflect on this issue, but I would welcome the opportunity to speak with some members of our group either one-on-one or in small groups to see how we can learn from each others’ reactions and insights.

In peace,
you may write to Rita on ritah@dircon.co.uk

Here in Reading I have repeatedly tried to set up dialogue between the ladies of my community and the Muslim community, but keep getting blanked. We really need to meet each other socially and talk to each other – there is far too much importation of foreign politics and talk of oppressors and oppressed when this is actually a complicated issue worthy of even-handedness and fairness. I have found that my very small community here in Reading have already suffered from the Gaza incursions last year – at the hands of Muslim youths, which I find most ironic, since we try to foster good relations with Muslims in Reading. I find that it helps not to avoid issues but to see the matter from the eyes of the other side, and work towards true understanding whilst maintaining our integrity.

Let’s not let this become a tribal issue. It’s not Muslims versus the world, it’s a small group running Gaza versus the Israeli Government. To state otherwise would be to cause unnecessary conflict.

Please note that we’re so very small that we don’t even have a synagogue in Slough – but we do have one in Reading which serves the Jews of Slough.
