End the siege and blockade of Gaza.

This petition had 180 supporters

As of 14/7/2014 over 1000 innocent Palestinians have been killed in Gaza, and over 5000 injured in an Israeli bombing campaign, which is in clear violation of international law. Many of the dead are children. Those responsible must be brought to justice for their war crimes.

There can be no peace in the Middle East without a two state solution where Palestine is a viable state in its own right. That means a return to the terms of the November 2012 cease fire, the opening up of borders to allow for the free movement of goods, the release of the Palestinian prisoners held without charge and an end to illegal settlements.

This petition urges the representative MP of Woking Jonathan Lord to condemn the Israeli actions and to do everything in his office to encourage Israel to show restraint at this very tragic time.  Please table a question asking the Foreign Secretary what action the UK government will take to end this collective punishment, and the deaths and injuries of innocent Palestinian men, women and children. This is not a war, this is a genocide.
