BELLINGHAM, Wash. – It’s sure to spark controversy.

The Bellingham City Council will consider a resolution to end violence in Gaza.

While the measure does encourage the government of Israel and Hamas to stop firing weapons at civilians, it will likely upset Israel supporters.

Bellingham Veterans for Peace is sponsoring the measure and the group’s Gene Marx says it is not anti-Semitic.

 

Marx says they oppose the ongoing violence in Gaza and the targeting of innocent civilians, adding they’re alarmed by the disproportionate killing of Palestinians.

The council could vote on the measure at its August 4 meeting.
