Bill Gates And Microsoft
Support Israeli Army
From Gush Shalom (Israeli Peace Bloc)

The following letter by Adam keller to Bill Gates speaks for itself. See below how you can help make it into a campaign.
To Mr. Bill Gates Chairman and Chief Software Architect c/o Microsoft
Dear Sir,
Two days ago, Israelis travelling on the main highways in the Tel-Aviv area were treated to enormous billboards bearing the Microsoft logo under the text-
"From the depth of our heart - thanks to The Israeli Defence Forces"
on the background of the Israeli national flag.
Microsoft is a major worldwide and world-famous corporation, whose activities overstep national boundaries and which is committed to promote global community, increasing trade, and stronger economic relationships and cultural interaction; which takes pride in promoting extensive community activities of various kinds, and declares on its website "We're serious about making the world a better place"; and which maintains offices and conducts active sales campaigns in Israel as well as at Egypt, Morocco, Dubai, Indonesia, Malaysia and other Arab and Islamic countires.
In view of the above, better could have been expected of Microsoft than disseminating crude nationalistic and militaristic propaganda at the Israeli population centers, and effectively lend its public support to the destructive war recently launched by the Sharon Government - a war sharply censured by the international community and controversial among the citizens of Israel itself.
We urge you to take care that this activity is terminated forthwith, and that the estimated tens of thousands of dollars invested in the abovementioned billboards be used instead to activities aimed at stopping the bloodshed and promotoing and equitable Israeli-Palestinian peace.
Sincerely Yours Adam Keller, Spokesperson Gush Shalom (The Israeli Peace Bloc) POB 2542, Holon 58125, Israel Phone ÷3-5565804 Email
