Let’s stop the massacre in Gaza

050807-PalestinaIn 2005 I visited Palestine as the Secretary General of the World Organization of the Scout Movement. On the whiteboard in a Scout base of the Palestinian scouts  I wrote a message of hope and solidarity with my scout sisters and brothers. Solidarity with that People that the State of Israel maintains into isolation and daily suffering.

I asked both  the Israeli Scouts and their Palestinians scout brothers to engage for Peace. Today, once again I call them and all the Scouts of the world: Stop the massacre in Gaza! Stop the chain reaction! A Scout is a friend to all and a brother to every other Scout. Scouts all over the world, if they are loyal to their Promise should now raise their voice to stop the massacre. Being a Scout is being a Peace Builder and Peace cannot be built through war. Stop the massacre in Gaza. If you want Peace build Peace.
