Hamas-Israel Conflict:
A Plea for Compassion and Peace

The world has looked on with sadness, disbelief and shock at the great human tragedy that has unfolded in Israel and Gaza. Thousands of innocent civilians both within Israel and Gaza, many of them children, have been killed and tens of thousands have been injured. We call on both parties to respect the dignity of human life, the basic human rights of all individuals and replace conflict with compassion.
