|The National Campaign: Bring the Settlers Home to Israel
Ian Lustick, Steve Masters
This panel includes the leading expert on the Israeli settlement movement and both co-chairs of the Advocacy and Public Policy Committee who, together, will discuss Brit Tzedek's major policy initiative this year: "The Call to Bring the Settlers Home to Israel." The Call is a grassroots initiative to change US policy towards the settlements. The campaign, which was launched last May on Israeli Independence Day, has already garnered over 8000 signatories from 49 states, including many prominent American Jews. In this session, the settlements as a key obstacle to a negotiated resolution will be discussed, as will the dynamics of building grassroots momentum for this important initiative.
