"This conflict between Hamas and Israel could not reveal a starker contrast," says Dr. Paul de Vries, President of the New York Divinity School. "Israel does all it can to protect the lives of all people in Israel and Gaza, while Hamas intentionally terrorizes men, women, and children in both Gaza and Israel."
Rev. Robert Stearns, Executive Director of Eagles' Wings added, "Israel is defending its civilians from over 2,000 rockets that have fallen in the last several weeks, while Hamas specifically directs innocent civilians into harm's way by launching attacks from, and storing weapons in hospitals, schools, and homes. Clear thinking requires that we not stay silent on this issue of the value of human life."
