Making progress or spinning wheels? Analyzing the new U.S. push for Palestinian-Israeli peace
Thanks to the 101 people who joined CMEP's Warren Clark and our guest Rami G. Khouri on Wednesday's National Briefing!
“The really gut issues (of the negotiations) are the ones that have to do with acknowledgement and recognition. Not technical issues about borders, or this street or that street, or some soldiers here or some soldiers there, but the core issues in which each of these two actors, the Israelis and the Palestinians, tell the other one, ‘We acknowledge you have a right to live here. We acknowledge that you have a historical association with this land.’” Click here to listen to all of Rami Khouri's presentation and his answers to listeners' questions.
Join us for our next briefing on Wednesday, March 19th at 4:00 PM (EST) with Warren Clark, who will have just returned from meetings in Jerusalem.

Settlement construction anywhere in the occupied Palestinian territories undermines the prospects for peace, and in East Jerusalem, in particular, changing the facts on the ground while negotiations have not yet resolved the status of Jerusalem – which both peoples look to as their capital – only serves to erode confidence in the peace process.
Tell your members of Congress that you want them to support Secretary Kerry’s efforts by holding Israel accountable for its actions during this important time of negotiations. Ask them to call for a complete halt to all settlement activity in support of just and lasting peace for Israelis and Palestinians.
