The 66-member delegation met several times with Hamas officials in the several days it spent in Gaza, and delegates (including me) encouraged them to write a letter to Obama expressing that he visit Gaza while in the Middle East to see the damage for himself of the assault earlier this year and the border blockade. One Hamas official stayed up all night and wrote the letter to Obama for the delegates to deliver to Cairo tomorrow.
Check out the photos of me and Tighe Barry with one Hamas official and the letter, and of delegates building three playgrounds, here.
