Condemn the Humanitarian Crisis in Aleppo

This petition had 307 supporters

All the world looks on in horror and sadness as the humanitarian crisis in Aleppo becomes increasingly dire. As many as 250,000 civilians remain in Aleppo where Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s army and allies push after a years-long siege. Evacuation efforts are interrupted by fighting and lack of supplies, and civilians are deliberately targeted.

The American Jewish Congress condemns in the strongest language the death and destruction caused by the war in Syria. We are ashamed that our leaders have failed to act. We’re ashamed of the violence against innocent men, women, and especially children. We abhor the deliberate targeting of civilians.

We also decry U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s inability to act to stop the horrible violence in Aleppo. Kerry’s ineffectiveness in the past months and years has, in part, led to the unbelievable violence in Syria. The American Jewish Congress is ashamed of this catastrophe.

Our organization will continue to push for reconciliation and security on behalf of civilians in Aleppo, and we hope you’ll join us.

Please join the American Jewish Congress in condemning John Kerry’s inability to act against the violence and, more so, the appalling humanitarian situation in Aleppo.
