Support Peace Envoy Resolution in the House
The road to Peace in the Middle East goes through Israel and Palestine
Rep. Susan Davis (D_CA) and ten others introduced H. Res. 143 ‘Urging the President to appoint a Special Envoy for Middle East Peace’ on February 8. The bill could re-engage US diplomatic efforts to create a peace among Israelis and Palestinians.
Contrary to President Bush’s statement during the build-up to the Iraq War that the road to peace for Israel is through Iraq, there will be continued unrest throughout the Middle East until the issues between Israel and her neighbors are resolved. The conflagration that is Iraq and the looming Iran strike has strong connections to the Israel/Palestine conflict.
Please email your Congressmember today and ask them to support H. Res. 143.
