A former pilot of the Israel's air force called on the world people to take part in a worldwide demonstration against the war crimes of 'Israel'.
The leading helicopter pilot in the Israeli army who was dismissed from service by his government after refusing orders in 2003, told al-Jazeera TV network, "I'm ashamed, and it breaks my heart to see my friends or ex-friends in the Israeli air force obedying these illegal and immoral orders to attack Gaza."
"It makes me to cry and to call on them as well as the people around the world to join the struggle against this horrible war crime," Jonathan Shapira said.
"I'm talking about hundreds of people that all are being killed and thousands of them might be killed in the next days," he said adding, "The only way to stop the crimes is a ceasefire but unfortunately my government refuses to do it."
Answering a question about the number of Israelis calling for ceasefire in Gaza, Shapira said, "It is not a secret that a majority have marched here. The media here are completely biased. They don't tell the right story and the truth about what is going on now."
"I dont think that this assault and this war crimes by the Israeli government would bring us any security. If the Israeli government wants security for me, for the Israelis, for the Jewish people, for all people who live here," he stresed.
Asked whether Barak Obama can help stop the clashes in the Middle East, Shapira said, "I dont have much hope about Obama. People are getting killed while he is playing gulf in Hawai. It does not give me any hope."
"I urge all the people who voted for him, if you really want a change you have to continue to put pressure on President elect Obama so that he puts pressure on Israel to stop the attacks on Gaza."
He said all people were being killed in Gaza by American-donated weapon, bullets, bombs and rockets.
"I assure you that all the planes, all the aircrafts, all the helicopters, all the rockets, almost all of them are coming from United States. From tax."
He called on all American tax payers that if they want to do something for the world, they have to stop just looking at TV and must instead press their government to tighten the screw on the Zionist regime.
Meanwhile, an Israeli author said the Gaza events proved the Israeli community had got used to warmongering culture.
Orit Degani added the war in Gaza revealed that Israel could not understand any language except war.
In her article published in the Maarive daily, she said, "Israelis don't like peace. They are pushing towards a war in which people will be killed."
"They believe oppression is the only way to gain their goals," she reiterated.
