Holly is a symbol of goodwill and joy. In the Victorian language of flowers, holly means foresight. Holly is seen as a symbol of good luck in both Christianity and Islam. But most importantly for me, it is said that disputes are often solved "under the holly tree"

Protest Seige of Gaza in Los Angeles: Monday Nov. 24 at Israeli Consulate
Monday, Nov. 24, 3:30-6 PM, protest Gaza Siege at Israeli Consulate. The humanitarian situation in Gaza is intolerable as reported in the major newspapers (e.g.,NY TimesNov. 18).The 5 month truce between Israel and Hamas broke down on Nov. 4. Israel sealed the border with Gaza cutting off fuel supplies (which through the Gaza Strip into a blackout), and stopping food deliveries. The UN which feeds half the Gaza population of 1.5 million ran out of food and stopped deliveries. In the past few days Israel allowed just enough food to prevent mass starvation and small amounts of fuel. Join LA Jews for Peace in a protest Monday, Nov. 24, 3:30-6:00 PM At the Israel Consulateat 6380 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles (between Fairfax and La Cienega). LA Jews will have signs and banners, bring your own.
