A great crime is being committed. The horror of Israel ’s invasion of Gaza mounts daily. The 1.5 million people of Gaza – fenced in on all sides – are being subjected to a brutal military assault from land and air. Civilian casualties are in the thousands. Food, medicine, and fuel are blockaded. Israel has declared this to be a “war to the bitter end.” The United States has backed Israel both with new, sophisticated military weaponry and with full diplomatic support.

We, living in this country have a great and urgent responsibility to act against what must be recognized as a War Crime by Israel with the full support of the United States . Too many who watch the assault on Gaza with horror and outrage, have remained silent. Too few have acted. This must, and can, change. On Tuesday January 13, 2009, at this Emergency Town Hall Meeting at Ethical Culture Society, we will carve open space for the truth to be spoken and we will call on people to act now to stop the massacre in Gaza .

Whether the world sees political protest and resistance, and mass outpourings of opposition and outrage in different forms in this country…or whether it sees continued support for and passive complicity with these attacks coming from the people here…all this will matter greatly, not only here in the US, but to people all over the world.
