Stop the Gaza killings

To the UN Security Council, the European Union, the Arab League and the USA:

We urge you to act immediately to ensure a comprehensive ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, to protect civilians on all sides, and to address the growing humanitarian crisis. Only through robust international action and oversight can the bloodshed be stopped, the Gaza crossings safely re-opened and real progress made toward a wider peace.

As ceasefire talks drag on, civilians are bearing the brunt of the onslaught. Only a huge wave of regional support can get both sides to come together and put an end to this madness.

Ban Ki-Moon and Clinton are meeting in Egypt trying to hammer out a deal that could potentially end the fire, but some reports claim that Israel has yet to agree. Massive suffering in Gaza is sure to ramp up unless we keep up the pressure to ensure that a comprehensive and durable agreement is brokered and that the humanitarian crisis in Gaza is properly addressed.

At least 138 Gazans have been killed including 34 children. The situation could get worse unless we urge the US, which has massive leverage over Israel, to continue to work hard with the UN and our leaders from the region to ensure a complete and effective ceasefire.
