CLARKE ISSUES STATEMENT ON VIOLENCE IN THE MIDDLE EAST
“As the deadly conflict in the Middle East continues to escalate — in what is nothing short of all-out war — the humanity of the Israeli and Palestinian people must be the center of our concern.
It is truly painful to witness this deadly escalation result in the tragic loss of innocent life. I join my colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, and the Administration in calling for an immediate ceasefire and a de-escalation of tension in the region.
The United States must use constructive diplomatic efforts to broker a just and lasting peace to ensure this culture of escalating violence is not inherited by another generation of Palestinian and Israeli people.”
