Caritas Internationalis; among others call for investigation, and permanent ceasefire

(Social Justice South Africa; c.f. Caritas internationalis (Catholic; independent; humanitarian organization) 09 / 01 / 2009)

Article by Marc Aupiais

Caritas Internationalis, an Umbrella organization of Catholic relief organizations: has called for an investigation of actions of both sides in the conflict in the Gaza Strip: asking that all violations of International Law on both sides: be investigated: and that Israel stop using a "disproportionate" amount of force to protect themselves, and Hamas stop rocket fire into the Gaza Strip. It has called both sides to respect International Law.

In Catholic doctrine, there is a proportionate amount of force, which one can use to protect themselves. Caritas Internationalis makes this request, for an investigation: to the United Nations Human Rights Council, in Geneva, Switzerland. They have said that the three hour lapses in bombings, by Israel, are a start, but that a permanent ceasefire is needed in the area.
