Green Party calls for urgent action to move forward with a UN peace
force in Lebanon, as ceasefire stands in danger

Green Party Principal Speaker Keith Taylor said: "The current fragile
ceasefire is the only route we have to move forward, as such it must
be protected fiercely. Israel's raid on Saturday, was in violation of
the UN brokered cessation of hostilities, and threatens to plunge the
area into further crisis.

"Military might will never bring an end to the situation in the
Middle East. Over a thousand people have been killed in the recent
conflict, most of them civilians. It has to be recognised that
concessions need to be made on all sides to deliver a just and
sustainable solution.

"Both Israel and Hizbullah must ensure that the humanitarian efforts
urgently needed to help the civilian population in Lebanon can
proceed without interference. The international community must ensure
that aid supplies that are desperately needed in Lebanon are provided
and can be distributed. Civilians have borne the brunt of this
conflict for too long."

"The international community must also ensure that UN Resolution 1701
is workable. This means ensuring sufficient troops are on the ground
in Lebanon to act as a capable peace keeping force.

"Sadly, Britain is not in the best position to provide credibly
neutral forces - Blair's overt decision to take sides on this
conflict means we are a party to the dispute, whilst our recent
history in the area also undermines the role any of out troops could
play on the ground - the local population are not likely to have
much faith in us as non partisan peace keepers."

"Peaceful measures are the only way to bring about a fair and lasting
ceasefire in this deeply troubled region - Lebanon may be the most
recent flash-point, but there is a backdrop of instability and
violence elsewhere in the region.

"Israel's oppression of the Palestinians must stop; an independent
and viable Palestinian state must be established, within the
framework of a two state solution.
