We the undersigned condemn the illegal Invasion, Occupation of Gaza and the murderous campaign against Palestinian people. The present campaign has been visited on an innocent civilian population in the Gaza strip, without mercy and any humane thought to the thousands who are suffering, death and serious injury in what Palestinians believe is the largest prison in the world. Israel decides who stays and who can leave; who lives and who must die. They decide that aid, medicines and food cannot enter. They decide that the minimum conditions for civilized society is denied for the ordinary people in Gaza, and this is acceptable. We in Ireland understand that to resolve political questions need to be eventually resolved through discussion and mutual respect. We call on the immediate cessation of hostilities and leave the Palestinians in peace.
