The US has called for a "de-escalation" and support a ceasefire in the current conflict between Hamas and Israel. Yet, while calling for Hamas to cease its rocket fire on Israel, they have failed to clearly call on Israel to cease its artillery, naval and aerial strikes on the Gaza Strip.

The undersigned, American residents of Egypt, are requesting a meeting with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to explain to her the dangers of the US' current position. The conflict in Gaza has regional repercussions, and the United States should do its utmost to end the fighting and the mounting civilian death toll is has caused. This begins by making it clear to both parties that military acts must end.

      I have been living in Egypt for close to 8 years. I was here when the US first launched its attack on Iraq. I remember the sentiments of the people in the region and how it was dangerous for Americans to even acknowledge that they were from America. In this conflict between the two sides...the real victims are the people. We as a country, should not be part of this. We should use peaceful means and not support heavy handed actions to end this conflict. What the US does and how it supports Israel unconditionally, deeply affects the safety of Americans in the region.

      Uphold the values of the American people and the western world. Taking sides is not helpful.

      Israel must be held accountable, too.

      As an American working on building cultural and educational bridges between Americans and Egyptians, our work is being hindered by the United States' unbalanced and politicized position that blatantly disregards the human side of the violence. A strong statement condemning the attacks on both sides, including Israel, will show our true commitment to find a peaceful solution for both sides. We American citizen diplomats in Egypt are desperately trying to clean up the mess that our foreign policy often creates in this region by showing a positive, humanist side of the United States. The opportunity to showcase our support for the peoples of the Middle East and North Africa post-Arab Awakening is slowly slipping away, and we need to be more balanced in our FP approach if we don't want to further antagonize the Arab world.
