Take Action for a Cease Fire

A friend just gave me some stats about casualities in the Lebanese-Israeli disaster. These stats now include U.N. personnel because of Israel's bombing destruction of one its facilities in southern Lebanon.

--United Nations Peace Keepers casualties...

4 peace keepers - (Chinese, Canadian, Finnish, Austrian)

--Lebanese casualties...

375 civilians
20 soldiers
27 Hezbollah fighters

--Israeli casualties...

18 civilians
24 soldiers

NONE of these numbers accounts for the thousands of displaced persons within Lebanon or Israel who face the terror of this war every day.

Visit in order to urge your elected U.S. officials to support House Concurrent Resolution 450, introduced by Rep. Dennis Kucinich and joined by 23 co-sponsors. One might be in your state!
