Israeli public figures proposal for Palestinian agreement

Towards Obama-Abbas meeting: hundreds of Israeli public figures present proposal for Israeli-Palestinian agreement

Press release, March 17, 2014

Towards Today's crucial meeting between President Obama and President Mahmud Abbas (Abu-Mazen), regarding the proposed American "framework agreement", hundreds of Israeli public figures - academics, writers, artists, former senior military officers, business CEO's, Laureates of the Israel Prize and many others - are making a public proposal of principles on which such an agreement could and should be based.

This initiative is intended to support and facilitate the ongoing diplomatic process, let it move forward towards peace between Israelis and Palestinians, and prevent a collapse which might prove highly disastrous to both peoples and to the entire region.

"We appreciate the tireless efforts of Secretary of State Kerry, but we cannot stand aside passively and wait for outsiders to decide issues which are crucial for out future in this country. A voice must be heard, loud and clear, from the very heart of Israeli society, pointing the way forward" says campaign organizer Naftali Raz..
