Working hard for Hampstead and Kilburn
We have had over 200 responses from Hampstead and Kilburn constituents in recents weeks about the crisis in Gaza. This is an increasingly tragic situation and one that must change.
My view is that while Israel has the right to defend herself, her response has been disproportionate, and the violence from both sides is horrific. The appalling death toll being visited upon civilians emphasises the urgent need for Hamas and Israel to sit down to peace talks. There can be no military solution; the only way forward is an immediate ceasefire and for both parties to somehow compromise and bring about a lasting peace.
