In Japan and across the world
thousands of people are praying for Kenji Gotos life, the Japanese ISIS hostage in northern Syria.
Just this morning, his captors posted a new image of him saying “24 hours left” to save his life was posted in the internet, and now more than ever we need to yell out with one united voice to save his life: “
But there is more we can do than just praying for Goto to return safe and sound to Japan.
We can send our plea directly to Jordan’s King Abdullah II, who is playing a key role as an intermediary in the crisis.
In the last days, the Japanese government has been asking the Jordan government for closer collaboration in their effort to free Kenji Goto on time. Jordan’s king can’t ignore this crisis -- Jordan Airforce’s 1st lieutenant Mu'ath al-Kaseasbeh has been a hostage for ISIS right next to Goto. Goto is a journalist who has fought to be a bridge to the islamic world and to tell the stories of the children suffering in the wars in the Near East. It’s the responsibility of the Jordan government, the Japanese government, and every single one of us to try to save Kenji Goto’s life.
The two governments are putting every effort into freeing Kenji Goto and Mu’ath al-Kaseasbeh.
Let’s join forces and send our voices to the Jordan king before the window closes. Click and sign the campaign
-- our plea will be sent to Jordan as soon as possible.
