FOR National Council Statement on Gaza

In light of the continuing crisis in Gaza and violence in Palestine and Israel, members of FOR’s National Council adopted the following brief statement:

Violence is a blunt, destructive instrument.  It causes harm to those who use it as well as those it is used upon.  There is great need for safety, justice, and mercy in Palestine and Israel.  The National Council of the Fellowship of Reconciliation deplores the indiscriminate use of violence in Israel and Palestine.  We strongly urge all parties to return to the ceasefire, and focus attention to resolving the needs of the people regardless of religion or race or national identity.
