Ted Terry, a local county commissioner in DeKalb County is making a resolution calling for an immediate permanent ceasefire between Israel and Palestine.

Terry condemned the attack and called for an end to the violence that has been escalating in the Middle East.

Now that 59 days have passed since the attack, Gaza is in dire condition with low supplies of clean water, food, fuel, shelter, and medical assistance.

The proposed resolution calls for:

  • A permanent ceasefire in Israel and Gaza
  • The immediate release of all hostages
  • An end to the blockade and siege of Gaza
  • The prompt provision of humanitarian assistance to Gaza
  • All parties to fully comply with their obligations under international law
  • A condemnation of rising antisemitism and Islamophobia seen worldwide

“The rise of increased antisemitism and Islamophobia must be condemned,” Terry said. “And continued bloodshed will only increase blind hatred and political radicalization in the Middle East and here at home. That’s why today I’m calling for a permanent ceasefire in the region.”

It’s important to note that Commissioner Ted Terry has no capacity as a county commissioner to convince Israel and Hamas to agree to a permanent ceasefire.
