Women march for Peace between Israel and Palestine - Movingtrend

Agencies - Monday October 09, 217

Thousands of the women from right and left wings are gathered for a peace march, which passed through the biblical desert and united at the Jordon River’s Shores. This march is for the Peace between Israel and Palestine.

The women and most of them are in white dress, moved down from the arid hills of the river and built a 'Peace Tent' and named for Hagar and Sarah, Holy mothers of Ishmael and Isaac.

One of the founders of the organising group, Women wage Peace, Marilyn Smadja said, " We are women from the right, the left, Jews and Arabs, from the cities and the periphery and we have decided that we will stop the next war."

This women wage Peace organization was formed after passing the 50-days of the Gaza War of 2014. This war killed 2,100 Palestinean Civilians and 67 soldiers and 6 civilians killed in Israeal's side.

Almost 5,000 women joined this peace march, that was started last month across the Israel and ended on Sunday October 08, outside the Jerusalem residence of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“As a religious woman, I say that to not believe in peace is to not believe in God.” Huda Abuarquob, one of the organisers and a Palestinian from Hebron said. “This march is not just another protest, but a way of saying that we want peace, and together we can obtain it” She added. This march is carried out at such time when there is little hope for the peace deal between Israel and Palestine.
