NOBEL CALL
AGAINST TERROR, FOR COMMON SENSE

BECAUSE WE ARE ALL HUMAN BEINGS,
BECAUSE WE ARE HORRIFIED BY THIS ENDLESS WASTE OF HUMAN LIFE IN THE NAME OF NATION OR RELIGION - THE DEATHCOUNTS GROWING FROM 400 IN 2001 TO MORE THAN 4000 NOW,
BECAUSE WE REFUSE THE LOGICS OF BLOOD PACTS AND ANY TERROR,
WE WHOLE-HEARTEDLY PRAISE THE COURAGE OF THE ISRAELI AND PALESTINIAN LEADERS AND PEOPLE WHO ARE TAKING BOLD STEPS ON THE WAY TO JUSTICE AND COMMON SENSE.
'ALONG THE WAY OF LIFE SOMEONE MUST HAVE SENSE ENOUGH AND MORALITY ENOUGH TO CUT OFF THE CHAIN OF HATE.' (Martin Luther King)
BE SURE THE WORLD IS WATCHING, WITH DEEP EXPECTATIONS.
WE ARE AT YOUR SIDE.
WHATEVER OBSTACLES MAY COME NOW, EVERYTHING YOU ACHIEVE FOR THE SAKE OF PEACE, JUSTICE, AND NON-VIOLENCE, WILL BENEFIT THE WHOLE HUMAN SPECIES.
MORE THAN EVER, WE DRINK FROM THE SAME SOURCES, WE BREATHE THE SAME AIR, WE SHARE THE SAME EARTH.
