Please save the life of an old man and his wife !

An old Palestinian couple of age 65 years, who lives near the Al-Salam Mosque in the southern part of Khan Younis, are beseeching the world to rescue their life after the ITF soldiers destroyed part of their house over their head, and will not allow them to escape from death. The couple is
Suleiman Sha'ath and his wife, from Al-Samin to the south of Khan Younis. Both are currently confined to the ruins of their house.

Eyewitnesses said that the ITF soldiers destroyed several houses near the Al-Salam mosque since the morning, and they have observed the old man, Suleiman Sha'ath, screaming and shouting from a corner of one of the demolished houses asking for help.

What to do ?

Call, write or fax the Israeli Embassy or consulate nearest to your home and ask them to let the Sha'at couple from Khan Younis go in peace.
Please also ask them to stop their murderous rampage. Enough is enough. Members of the parliament or from the city council of your jurisdiction might also be helpful, and the Foreign Ministry of your country or the embassy of your country in Israel  are always a good resource. They have the contacts and know to whom to talk in Israel.
