Take Action To Save Lives in the Middle East

From Christian Aid:

Dear supporter,
Civilians are bearing the brunt of the latest crisis in the Middle East. More than 400 Lebanese, 40 Israelis and 80 Palestinians have died since the current violence began. Hundreds of thousands more have lost their homes and had their livelihoods destroyed.
The UK government has failed to use its influence to bring about an immediate ceasefire, an end to hostilities and full compliance with international humanitarian law by all sides.
We need your help to put pressure on Prime Minister Tony Blair to call for an immediate ceasefire. Write to him today.
Email Tony Blair now

"The UK government has failed to use its influence to bring about an immediate ceasefire, an end to hostilities and full compliance with international humanitarian law by all sides."

What influence does the UK government have with Hezbollah, Tehran or Damascus?

"We need your help to put pressure on Prime Minister Tony Blair to call for an immediate ceasefire."

Tony Blair has said he wants a ceasefire but one that is sustainable. Simply asking Israel and Hezbollah to stop fighting will not resolve the conflict.
