A Hard-Hitting Message From The Israel-Palestine Conflict: "We Don't Want You Here"

Family members of fallen victims appear in this new PSA condemning the conflict.

Over the last couple of weeks, fighting between Israel and Hamas, has seen Israel hit more than 2,000 targets in Gaza and Hamas launch nearly 1,500 rockets at Israel. There has been high-profile deaths of children and now the reported launch of ground troops.

In the midst of the tragedy, an organization called Palestinian Israeli Bereaved Families for Peace and agency BBR Saatchi & Saatchi Israel, have weighed in on the ongoing conflict. In the new PSA, Palestinians and Israelis repeat the seemingly inflammatory phrase "We don't want you here." In the end, though, it's revealed to be a plea from people who have lost family members to the violence, for no one on either side of the conflict to join their ranks.

  • I believe that the following is very relevant: 1 John 5 NLT

    Faith in the Son of God 5 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has become a child of God. And everyone who loves the Father loves his children, too. 2 We know we love God’s children if we love God and obey his commandments. 3 Loving God means keeping his commandments, and his commandments are not burdensome. 4 For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. 5 And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God. 6 And Jesus Christ was revealed as God’s Son by his baptism in water and by shedding his blood on the cross—not by water only, but by water and blood. And the Spirit, who is truth, confirms it with his testimony. 7 So we have these three witnesses— 8 the Spirit, the water, and the blood—and all three agree. 9 Since we believe human testimony, surely we can believe the greater testimony that comes from God.

    I am a person who can see where the parties in this particular world conflict are on the opposite sides of what the Father of the Universe(God, Allah, Yahweh,YHVH) wants ALL of us to do….LOVE. And most of the post here reinforce the HATE coming from both sides. Just because you believe you are right/just in your belief or cause, doesn't make it so. There are no innocent parties in this. And trust, no matter how much you justify your position with facts, HATE is the only unbiased party is this conflict. It's really sad to see how powerful HATE can be. May the Universe bless you with PEACE!!!

    So not only are you claiming there is a god, but now you claim to know what it wants. Is there any basis for your belief, considering the fact that there is no evidence of any such thing? It is belief in myths and the religions they spawn that IS the nature of the problem.

    We love you ISRAEL. The only Democracy in a sea of hatred, intolerance and religious fanaticism. Europe got itself in too deep by allowing muslims in their country. Now, they paying for that dearly and that is just a beginning....

    The Arabs occupy 99.9% of the Middle East and have made a mess of everything with their terrorists, jihadists, Sharia law, laws against women, stoning people to death, cutting off hands if you steal. They are jealous of little Israel who is the hit of the Middle East in democracy, medicine, science, technology, agriculture, transportation, utilities, renewable energy, pipelines to bring gas to Jordan and Egypt. Jealousy of the Arabs who have never contributed anything to this world except terrorism, Osama Bin Laden, Qaddifi, Hamas, Hezbollah, ISIS, ETC. What a group! The Palestinians are another group of Arabs who belong in one of the other Arab countries They contribute nothing to this world except murder and terrorism.

    the israeli and palestinian conflict is not an American concern. those who want to take sides in their silly war are free to go. American owe the animals in the middle nothing but contempt for extorting our weapons and tax dollars and killing our soldiers.

    Imagine if the Iron dome did not work? Imagine if the tunnels remained? Imagine if the civilian casualties were equal? 2000 children of Isaeli Jews, Christians, Greeks, Armenians, Kurds, Druze, Bedouins and Israeli Arabs had been killed and 10 thousand wounded? Imagine if the Israeli's decided to remove Hamas leadership from Gaza? How come that is never considered?

    Soon those rockets will land much more precisely on target. On one day 1000 Israeli schools will be hit with 50,000 Israeli children dead. That day I hope the Israeli leadership instead of talk and walk to gas chambers has the quick guts to nuke Gaza and erase the whole rocket launch problem.

    While at it, use 100 nukes for Iran, they are prepraring the Tel Aviv and New York nukes.

    Israel is now facing enemies that truly do not fear death, Israelis do fear death, and if they do not use their 500 nukes to nuke their ruthless enemies, they will be like the Christians that are being attacked ruthlessly.

    Time to clean house. Respect your enemy. Kill him.

    Most of the world hate word of God, the world determine human rights on man's opinion and not God laws, in the end prophet Zechariah says the world will turn against Jews and Israel. The Jews will one align God and does people in trust love God no one else.

    Israel has lost all credibility in this latest attack on defenseless Gazans. There is now no way for a ONE STATE SOLUTION. There must be a TWO State Solution, meaning the land stolen by Israel from the Palestinans must be returned to create enough space for the two states. Palestine must have all occupied forces out of their country, no Zionist checkpoints. Palestine has a right to self determination. Israel CANNOT rob the $4billion in gas reserves in Gaza. That is the one thing that would help the Palestinan economy. For those of you living in Israel, you surely must know the world condemns that fascist regime of bibi. He IS YOUR problem. He has created war crimes, according to the Geneva Conventions. In the US even jewish brothers and sisters march with US, against the fascist regime of Bibi the Terrible. There will be peace in the middle east when the US Congress is forced by our voters not to give Israel another red cent so you can continue bombing and threatening your neighbors

  • The (Sunni) Kurds say the Arabs have 20 states and now the Arabs want a 21st state - Palestine; and we the Kurds do not even have one state. The Kurds assumed that their Arab Sunni neighbors who they have lived with for years would not side with ISIS and so they allowed the Arabs to stay . However Syrian Kurdish refugees recount how Arab neighbours they once trusted turned on them and pilfered their properties as Islamic State jihadists invaded their homeland Many describe how neighbours they regarded as "brothers" suddenly turned coat and volunteered to become local informants – and sometime fighters – for the mostly foreign-born Isil forces as they swept village after village on the road to Kobane. "They started acting as guides to Isil, saying this one is Kurdish, that village is Kurdish, that is the home of a YPG [Kurdish militia] fighter," said Mostafa Bakr, 33, a blacksmith from Nour Ali .50,000 Kurdish Jews live in Israel and support the Sunni Kurds of Iraq and Syria.
