We believe that the endless and unfruitful debate about the merit of “who has more right to the land” or the continuation of the “blame game” will only assure the prolongation of the hostilities and destruction. Both Palestinians and Israelis are entitled to have their land, their country and their dignity. However, that should not, in any way, shape or form, be achieved at the expense of the other side’s suffering and demise. We unrestrictedly condemn any violence against civilians and any violations of international law. We strongly support the peaceful dialogue and the urgent final resolution of this terrible ongoing suffering for Palestinians and Israelis.
