Just Foreign Policy and Jewish Voice for Peace have launched a campaign to urge President Obama to reform U.S. policy toward the Palestinians so that George Mitchell's diplomacy can succeed. They are recommending the following:You can sign their letter here:
lift the blockade on Gaza,
authorize U.S. diplomats to talk to Hamas officials,
get serious about ending Israeli settlements in the West Bank,
insist that US weapons supplied to Israel be only used for self-defense, as required by US law.
The petition's deadline is February 23, 2009.
The background of the petition is provided in this article in the Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-naiman/a-window-for-israelpalest_b_160830.html by: John Lewis-Dickerson
