The world was surprised by former US president Barack Obama's statement acknowledging the complicity of all parties in the conflict between Hamas and Israel. Despite some positive rhetoric from US Congress members and European politicians, actions from the West continue to show unwavering support for Israel.

The US and the West must take action to stop the bloodshed and facilitate negotiations for a sustainable peace.
