Congressman Keith Ellison is standing virtually alone among his colleagues in calling for all sides to immediately cease violence in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
"I am deeply concerned about the latest outbreak of violence between Israelis and Palestinians in Gaza," Ellison said in a statement to The Huffington Post. "I urge both sides to practice restraint and take immediate action to reduce hostilities."
On Friday, he tweeted, " innocents and non-combatants need IDF and Hamas to defuse hostilities in Gaza now. Tragic loss of life on both sides. Cease fire."
We need his voice in Congress for peace, chip in a few dollars now.
