Mazel Tov President Obama!

I will accept this award as a call to action...
President Barack Obama, October 9, 2009

Today President Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his "extraordinary efforts in order to strengthen dialogue in the world (and) to resolve conflicts by negotiations."

In particular, the Committee highlighted President Obama's efforts to spark movement on Mideast peace and to "promote the positive processes that have started." Send President Obama a letter of congratulations!

President Obama's presidency and has helped restore America's image in the world, setting the stage for a negotiated two-state peace in the Middle East. With his continued leadership and action, Mideast peace has the potential to become reality.

In a press conference responding to his Peace Prize award, the President called on the nations of the world to confront 21st century challenges, mentioning his unwavering commitment to finally realize the rights of all Israelis and Palestinians to live in peace and security in nations of their own.

The best way to congratulate President Obama is to show him that his efforts matter. Let him know that you share the optimism of the Nobel Prize Committee and the hope that he will go the full nine yards for Mideast peace. Tell the President, Mazel Tov!

We look forward to the day when this prize is shared with Israeli and Palestinian leadership against the backdrop of two states living side-by-side in peace and security.
