OneVoice Statement on Israel-Hamas Ceasefire

21 May 2021

We’re relieved that last night Israel and Hamas agreed to a ceasefire. Our thoughts remain with everyone impacted by this horrific crisis. We hope the victims rest in peace, and may their loved ones find comfort in their memories. 

Although we are glad the worst seems to be over, what we’ve seen in the last two weeks underscores a crucial fact: The status quo in Israel-Palestine is untenable. “Ceasefire” is not a synonym for peace, or justice, or security. 

Looking ahead, we must continue to aid Israelis and Palestinians dedicated to breaking the cycle of violence that has caused their people so much suffering. Ultimately, the moderate majorities in both societies are the ones who can foster that sort of transformation. They deserve all the help we can muster—today, tomorrow, and in the years to come.

Our hearts are hurting, yet our resolve to aid those peacebuilders has never been stronger. Moreover, we remain driven to empower the international community by providing the tools, resources, and perspectives needed to generate solutions-oriented activism around the world in service of long-term conflict resolution.
