The Archbishop of Canterbury, the head of the Muslim Charities Foundation and the head of the Movement for Reform Judaism in the UK have launched a joint appeal for funds towards humanitarian work in Gaza.
The official broadcast of the Disasters Emergency Gaza Crisis Appeal on ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 earlier this week doubled the total money received overnight to more than £1 million. But more is needed.
Bishop William Kenney, part of a delegation of Catholic bishops from Europe and North America who visited Israel-Palestine this month, has expressed regret at the BBC's refusal to show a charity appeal for Gaza.
A House of Commons motion criticising the BBC and Sky for refusing to broadcast a plea for humanitarian aid funding for Gaza has been backed by 112 MPs. Actors and directors are also joining the protest.
