Americans in Support of sign now


Dear Peace-loving Fellow Americans

The US is founded on the principles of freedom, justice and equality for all as expounded in the US Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights and the American Constitution.
The US moral obligations and world leadership is to see those principles apply to all the nations through peaceful means as George Washington admonished in 1796 when he said: In shaping the US international relations, the US should abjure any passionate attachment to, or inveterate hatred of any other nation. Instead, the US should cultivate peace and harmony with all.

Unfortunately US foreign policy does not address the concerns of the American public. As such it is not on the election agenda, nor on the ballots. As a result the political decision-making process is left to the desire of special interests groups and the lobbying leanings of indoctrinated hardliners. Those who actively finance political campaigns and recruit votes get their interests served first.
The mainstream media is not fulfilling its role as a guardian of the public interest and as a watchdog on the activities of government.
No longer does the media in general play its honest role of informing and educating the public about the adverse effects to the American public from political manipulation of foreign policy. Its role now is often marred by bias, confusion and obfuscation of truth.

No foreign conflict suffered from US passionate attachment and bias, and US impotence to equitably cultivate peace and harmony among its conflicting parties like the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. US military, monetary aids and diplomatic prowess were unjustly squandered, perpetuating the evils of occupation, injustices, humiliation, home demolition, land confiscation, economic deprivation bloodshed, terrorism and suicide bombing. Over the past 60 years or so the conflict became as much of an American problem as it is a Palestinian and Israeli problem. As a matter of fact, it got to the point that only the US monetary, military and heavy diplomatic leverage can solve it, and only skewed American politics can block its equitable solution.

President Bush in his speech in June 2002 said:
It is untenable for Israeli citizens to live in terror. It is untenable for Palestinians to live in squalor and occupation. And the current situation offers no prospect that life will improve.
Palestinian people will grow more and more miserable. My vision is two states, living side by side in peace and security
Today, the Palestinian people live in economic stagnation, made worse by official corruption.
A Palestinian state will require a vibrant economy where honest enterprise is encouraged by honest government. The United States, the international donor community and the World Bank stand ready to work with Palestinians on a major project of economic reform and development. The United States, the EU, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund are willing to oversee reforms in Palestinian finances, encouraging transparency and independent auditing. And the United States, along with our partners in the developed world, will increase our humanitarian assistance to relieve Palestinian suffering.

Recently, President Bush expressed his desire to solve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict before he leaves office in January 2009. President Bush advocates a n independent, democratic and viable Palestinian state side by side with Israel within 1967 borders with east Jerusalem as its capital and a solution to all other problems including the Palestinian refugees problem..

Recently, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert declared we have started very seriously to talk to Abbas on a peace process and questions which can allow a Palestinian state to be established. Israels Haaretz newspaper also reported that Olmert was offering to hold negotiations to agree on principles to establish a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital before more sensitive diplomatic issues are tackled.

Reports abound that the majority of ordinary Israeli and Palestinian citizens want peaceful resolution of the conflict, with a Two-State solution as envisioned by the US and supported by the Quartet.
Frustrated with the ongoing instability in the region, its recent crises, and the lack of progress OneVoiceMovement (www.onemillionvoices.org ) announced that nearly 500,000 Palestinian and Israeli citizens have united to demand immediate, ongoing, uninterrupted negotiations until a comprehensive Two-State agreement is achieved.

Negotiations without honest US brokerage and heavy US leverage will not lead to a Two-State solution. Israelis and Palestinians negotiating without the heavy weight of the US would look like two gamblers in a poker game, with one million dollars in the pocket of the Israeli and five dollars with the Palestinian. The end game is logical determined and bloodshed is instigated.
As for the US it is well known that any move by the American representatives for an equitable solution of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict without public American backing is tantamount to a political suicide. Only a few representatives have the courage to do it, and with the majority of representatives holding back who would care about the daring few. The dark hard-line forces are too influential and too rich. Only the daring American public from all walks of life, and various religious denominations, and secular affiliations can stop that bad influence and neutralize the affluence by supporting the Two-State solution.
After all the conflict is as much as an American issue as it is a Palestinian or Israeli issue and the Two-State solution is in the best interests of the US, Israelis and Palestinians in particular and the world at large.

Pin down the official US position for Two-State solution and demand its expeditious implementation by writing to
President Bush,
Vice President Cheney
Secretary Rice
Your Senator
And Your Congressman

    It's time for Americans to do the right ting for both Palestinians and Israelis alike, equally, not one above the other. Peace is the only answer and equal rights for a nation each is the answer, built based on Interantional law, not silly or rigged negot
