A Call for Peace

We are all deeply affected by yet another terrible conflict.

We are in touch with our local leaders in Palestine, Israel, Lebanon and Jordan, and all they wish for is for an immediate end to all violence and the building of peace, just like all of us. We make again a call to all to work together for peace for all people, everywhere.

We condemn the widespread distribution of weapons rather than food and water, the dropping of bombs on civilian zones instead of the sowing of the seeds for food. If the same amount of resources and attention invested in manufacturing, transporting and distributing weapons, would be stopped and redirected to food and water, we would not only achieve food security, but also global peace.
