Gaza

  • Sharebar

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.

    Yes, the devastation is horrific. I’m surprised the Palestinian people aren’t pleading with Hamas to cease their hostilities. As a group dedicated to peace, I’m sure you did plead with Hamas to acknowledge Israel, and to stop their incessant violence and insane ambition to irradicate her. The way Hamas is bringing such devastation and poverty upon the Palestinian people is criminal and should not be tolerated!
