Obama Tells Netanyahu, Two-States is the Only Way

During a congratulatory call to Netanyahu on March 19th, Obama indicated that “The [United States] continue[s] to believe that a two-state solution is the only way for the long-term security of Israel, if it want to stay both a Jewish state and democratic.” More here. 

What are the next steps?

"Many other conflicts in the region are not related, but this conflict feeds resentment that helps feed the others. For that reason reduction of this conflict could help attenuate others also. It is time for the US to use this political opportunity to help Israelis and Palestinians find a way decisively out of their conundrum. The task will be hard, but not impossible."

583 Join CMEP in calling for a framework and timeframe for ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict!

Regardless of the outcome of the Israeli elections, President Obama should lead the U.S. in insuring that everything possible is done to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, ensuring security, human rights and religious freedom for all the peoplof the region.

We must encourage President Obama to take action so that this opportunity is not lost. Your voice is essential. 

Continuation of this conflict and 47 years occupation of East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza adds to the instability and volatility in the Middle East today, and hurts U.S. interests. 

The President and Secretary Kerry should propose that the new Israeli government work with the U.S., Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia representing the Arab Peace Plan to develop an agreed framework and timetable for a comprehensive agreement.579

If necessary, the U.S. should make clear that it will consult with the other permanent members of the U.N. Security Council to introduce a resolution that will spell out the framework and timetable for just, lasting and comprehensive agreement. 

Without public support for him taking this action the possibility for success is small. You and I must help him do what is in the best immediate and long-term interests of Palestinians and Israelis, and Americans.
