Givat Haviva strongly condemns all targeted attacks on Israeli and Palestinian civilians, in synagogues and in mosques.
We call upon the leaders of both sides to avoid any unnecessary incitement and to take all possible steps available to stop the deterioration and acts of revenge that are leading us to a vicious circle of violence.
We expect the leaders to react strongly to terrorism while also returning to the path of reconciliation and hope. The root of this enormous pain, suffering and loss is in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
It is impossible to continue to "manage the conflict" in the midst of this bloodshed.
We must return, swiftly, to the path of conflict resolution. It is possible. Stop the cycle of bloodshed, and give us a chance to enjoy a peaceful and nonviolent life.
Givat Haviva, Israel
