Write to Your MP Today!

The Israel–Lebanon crisis is spiralling out of control. Please feel free to use this template to write to your MP, if you so choose.

Dear …,

I am writing to you out of concern over the Israel–Lebanon conflict. Israel has now defied a demand by Kofi Annan for there to be an immediate end to the crisis and the UK should not be condoning these actions. As the MP, Clare Short stated yesterday, 'massive killing of innocent Lebanese civilians and destruction of infrastructure' amounts to war crimes. I am very disappointed that this government is allowing this to happen without intervention. Our ambivalence about civilian deaths in Lebanon has given Israel the sign that it needs to continue and this is unacceptable. Please represent my views in parliament.

    Modified it a little, hope you don't mind:

    Dear Shona McIsaac,

    I am writing to you out of concern over the Israel–Lebanon conflict. Israel has now defied a demand by Kofi Annan for there to be an immediate end to the crisis and the UK should not be condoning these actions. As the MP, Clare Short stated yesterday, 'massive killing of innocent Lebanese civilians and destruction of infrastructure' amounts to war crimes. I am very disappointed that this government is allowing this to happen without intervention. Our ambivalence about civilian deaths in Lebanon has given Israel the sign that it needs to continue and this is unacceptable. History has shown us that continued violence along the lines that Israel is following does little to counter terrorist threats, and more often leads to an increase in recruitment and power for groups such as Hezbollah. By implicitly supporting the violence, we the UK have the blood of many innocent civilians on our hands. This is not the way to show an example to the rest of the world, or to fight the terrorist threat we all face. Please stand up and speak out for both the innocent Lebanese people, and for all the British citizens who's lives will be made more dangerous by an increase in worldwide anti–British sentiment and by an increase in support, numbers and power for terrorist organisations.

    Yours sincerely,

    Chris Rossdale
