We, the people of the world do not give our permission to the continuation and intensification of warfare in Lebanon. We strongly urge the British Government to not isolate itself from the mood and sentiment of the international community towards this conflict. The UN Secretary General, Kofi Annan has called for an immediate cessation of hostilities, access to humanitarian aid and a peaceful and diplomatic solution to this conflict to prevent further conflagration of this war.
