Action Alert: Online Petition to Prevent Hamas from Rearming!
Advocating for A Ceasefire that Prevents Hamas from Rearming
Here is an online petition you can sign and pass along to others toshow your support for having the U.S. craft a long term ceasefire that would prevent another major conflict sparked by Hamas in the near future!
WE urge the U.S. Administration to work with allies to promote a long term ceasefire in which Gaza terrorist groups are prevented from rearming and rebuilding their military capabilities. These requirements would serve as a first step toward the disarmament and eventual demilitarization of Gaza, conditions necessary to protect the work of reconstruction in Gaza and to prevent a recurrence of hostilities sparked by Hamas and other militant factions in the region.
