Urgent Appeal for Ceasefire in the Palestinian Conflict
The Islamic Society of Vermont urgently calls for an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza to safeguard the lives of innocent civilians and preserve humanity. We strongly condemn the acts of violence against children and women in Gaza, resulting in the heartbreaking loss of 18,000 lives, with half of them being innocent children. The displacement of up to 1.8 million Gazans, approximately 80 percent of the population, is a direct consequence of Israel's bombardment. This level of brutality and genocide is entirely unacceptable, and we should denounce such atrocities.
Vermont is a peaceful state, and we expect that all people stand together for peace, justice, and the protection of human rights, opposing the killing of innocents regardless of their race or country of origin. While the United Nations and many other countries are calling for an immediate ceasefire, it is unfortunate that Vermonters have yet to make a similar call. It is our collective responsibility to advocate for an immediate ceasefire to prevent further loss of life. Let us stand together in urging for an end to hostilities, fostering understanding, and supporting initiatives that promote peace, justice, and reconciliation.
Vermonters have the power to make a positive impact, inspire change, and create an environment of empathy and understanding. We urge each and every resident to lend a helping hand, whether through acts of kindness, community initiatives, or open dialogue. We also urge local, state, and national leaders, as well as leaders within religious communities, to come together for unity and urgently advocate for an immediate ceasefire. Together, we can be a force for good, contributing to a state that stands firmly towards peace. Let's start with calling for a CEASE FIRE.
