The spiraling escalation of inhumane violence in Israel and Gaza over the last week is heartbreaking and unacceptable, but further bloodshed and the suffering of innocents cannot and will not resolve anything.
Today’s attack on the Anglican hospital that killed more than 500 people is just the next exhibit of untold horrors that awaits us on a path of total rage and revenge unleashed.
That is why we are calling on President Biden to use his trip to Jordan and Israel to insist on an immediate cease fire and the swift delivery of humanitarian aid to Gaza before more lives are lost. Please help us send this message:
Dear President Biden,
As the largest provider of military aid to Israel the United States must use all its influence to call for restraint: An immediate ceasefire that allows for urgent humanitarian relief for Gaza as well as the safety and immediate release of hostages.
Wise leadership can turn this moment of extreme peril into an opportunity for peace.
Please President Biden, take the risks of true leadership for peace. Speak up for all the children of the region and their dreams to one day live in peace and freedom from fear.
It is not too late.
