Tell Congress: Diplomacy works. Make the Gaza ‘pause’ permanent

Sign a letter to your elected officials today

The ‘pause’ in fighting between Israel and Hamas appears to be holding, allowing the shipment of critically needed humanitarian aid into Gaza, where 14,000 people have been killed thus far — the vast majority of them children, women, and the elderly. This pause in the fighting must be made permanent so that no more innocent civilians are harmed.

PPJC has drafted a letter to our elected officials (see below). You can sign it as is, or edit it with your own comments. We urge you to raise your voice at this critical time. Sign the letter today.

Dear Representative / Senator _______________

I am relieved to see that the ‘pause’ in fighting between Israel and Hamas appears to be holding, allowing the shipment of critically needed humanitarian aid into Gaza, where 14,000 people have been killed thus far — the vast majority of them children, women, and the elderly. This pause in the fighting must be made permanent so that no more innocent civilians are harmed.

The weeks-long negotiations that resulted in this brief ceasefire clearly demonstrate that diplomacy works. I urge you to add your voice to the growing chorus of caring individuals and elected officials who are calling for a ceasefire now.

After witnessing the incredible scale of death and destruction of the past weeks, we cannot allow the violence to begin again. Let us seize this moment, when the guns are silent, to negotiate not only an end to this current round of violence, but a permanent peace that grants all Palestinians their full human and civil rights and insures peace for Israelis.

Sign the letter to Congress today. Thank you.
