      Peace Now Demands Cancellation of Gush Katif Day

      Peace Now Director Yariv Oppenheimer wrote Education Minister Shai Piron, "The commemoration of the memorial day for the destruction of Gush Katif in schools across Israel has become a day dedicated to one-sided right wing propaganda, stressing the crime of the Disengagement and the hardship of the poor families who were banished mercilessly from their homes by Sharon, without pointing out how much security and peace on the Gaza front has been acquired as a result of this important historic relocation. I demand you cancel the day and its ceremonies in all Israeli schools."
