Update on November 23, 2012
Dear petition signers! A cease fire agreement has been reached between Israel and the Hamas. The agreement was facilitated by Egypt, the UN, the USA and several other countries. Israel has agreed to end all hostilities and targeted killings. The agreement ends an 8 day surge of violence that resulted in over 160 deaths, hundreds of injuries, destruction of homes and facilities, devastation and trauma to millions. We are yet to see if the agreement holds, however we deeply hope it will and end the senseless cycle of violence that has caused so much suffering. Hopefully the sides will soon reach better understanding that will end the siege on Gaza and provide security and prosperity to all people of this battered region. Thank you so much for your support! Your voice together with almost a quarter of a million other voices has been heard loudly.
