Gaza Ceasefire: Network of Spiritual Progressives


All over the world, people are searching their hearts for solutions to the tragedies of the Middle East.

Instinctively, I think of the terrors inflicted by both sides as violence between beloved family members.  In that context, I can feel protective of all the feuding parties without ignoring  their concerns or their failings.  It’s a context that helps to deflect anger and knee-jerk reactions.  It’s a context for humane solutions that  avert the destruction of nations, cultures and  the larger world family.

No matter your point of view concerning the ongoing violence in Gaza and Israel, please visit the following link and read the advertisement which provides rational bases for a lasting ceasefire. (If you agree with its suggestions, you can add your signature and/or make a contribution to its publication.)  Please visit: Network of Spiritual Progressives

The solutions posited by the ad are thoughtful, humane, specific and  mandate the participation of  all  nations.  They  require an understanding of the pain  inflicted and suffered  by all sides and recognize the dire  threat posed to the world family  if we do not  join to  end this degradation. (Many thanks to B. Sterner for forwarding it  to one of her Peace & Justice Groups and her lifelong work.)

I would  like to hear your responses to the advertisement.  Please take a moment to leave a comment here after reading the full text of the ad.

Additionally, Rep. Dennis Kucinich is sponsoring the following  legislation  for an immediate ceasefire:
