APN Deeply Dismayed by Israeli Raid on Gaza Flotilla
APN mourns the loss of life on board the Marmara, and wishes full recovery to the injured, both IDF soldiers and the international activists.
Commenting on the Gaza ship disaster, APN President and CEO Debra DeLee said: “The fact that Israel finds itself in this difficult situation today underscores the extent to which Israel’s continued policy of blockading Gaza is untenable and increasingly indefensible…this policy does not serve Israel’s interests
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said yesterday,
“The situation in Gaza is unsustainable and unacceptable.”

We as a global society cannot let the Middle East Peace process fail this time, we need to redouble our efforts to bring about a true and lasting peace for all in the region.
There are times when you have to obey a call which is the highest of all, i.e., the voice of conscience even though such obedience may cost many a bitter tear, and even more, separation from friends, from family, from the state to which you may belong, from all that you have held as dear as life itself. For this obedience is the law of our being.
