Take Action: Tell Bush and Congress: US Diplomacy Now! 


Dr. Stephen P. Cohen is a leader in the practice and theory of unofficial diplomacy know as Track Two Diplomacy. Since 1975 when he first traveled to Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and the Palestinian areas as part of a team of university professors, he has pioneered behind the scenes efforts in bringing Arabs and Israelis together. Having developed relationships with governmental leaders and decision makers for more than twenty-five years, he brings to leaders of Israel, the Palestinians and the Arabs, as well as top American officials, original ideas and approaches to advancing peace and peaceful relations.

Dr. Cohen founded the Institute for Middle East Peace and Development in 1979 to serve as facilitator and private intermediary in peace-making and peace-building and has served as its President ever since. He is the National Scholar of Israel Policy Forum and in the last years he has been a visiting professor at Princeton University and Lehigh University.

Dr. James J. Zogby is founder and president of the Arab American Institute (AAI), a Washington, D.C.-based organization which serves as the political and policy research arm of the Arab American community. Since 1985, Dr. Zogby and AAI have led Arab American efforts to secure political empowerment in the U.S. Through voter registration, education and mobilization, AAI has moved Arab Americans into the political mainstream.

For the past three decades, Dr. Zogby has been involved in a full range of Arab American issues. A co-founder and chairman of the Palestine Human Rights Campaign in the late 1970s, he later co-founded and served as the Executive Director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. In 1982, he co-founded Save Lebanon, Inc., a private non-profit, humanitarian and non-sectarian relief organization which funds health care for Palestinian and Lebanese victims of war, and other social welfare projects in Lebanon. In 1985, Zogby founded AAI.
