The Unitarian Universalists for a Just Economic Community (UUJEC) endorses the statement as it is a response to Principles one through eight.  The highest priority is for an immediate ceasefire, with the return of hostages and respect for human rights.  Humanitarian assistance will be needed for years after destroying most of the hospitals, schools, housing and infrastructure.
