Message from American Jews to Congress and the US President
Join Brit Tzedek's call for a negotiated two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Message #3:
 

We represent the majority of American Jews who support a negotiated two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Together, we are raising our voices in support of a proactive U.S. policy that is both "pro-Israel" and "pro-negotiated peace."

The U.S. government needs be an active partner for peace. We urge both Congress and the Administration to:
  • Endorse the timely and complete withdrawal of Israeli settlers and military forces from the Gaza Strip and from the four West Bank settlements this summer;
  • Ensure that the Gaza disengagement is the first step towards a return to the negotiating table by opposing any Israeli or Palestinian unilateral actions that prejudice future negotiations such as Israeli settlement expansion and a Palestinian return to violence; and
  • Expand direct aid to the Palestinian Authority for critical economic development assistance, as an incentive for continuing to rein in violent factions and enact political and economic reform.
