Tell Secretary Rice: Israel Must Stop Settlement Activity

  • by: J Street
  • target: Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
Despite repeated promises to the United States to freeze settlement expansion, the Israeli government has just approved more new settlement construction on the West Bank.

J Street believes Israel will only be secure and the Middle East stable when Israel makes peace with its neighbors, including the Palestinians. Continued settlement expansion on the West Bank is a major obstacle to making progress toward peace. Settlement expansion undermines Palestinian moderates, deepens the divide separating the sides and undercuts the economic and security interests of Israel in the long run.

We believe it's in Israel's and America's interests for the U.S. to step in. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was able to convince the Israeli government to freeze settlement construction once before -- just last year. She can do it again.

Join J Street, the pro-peace, pro-Israel lobby, and urge Secretary Rice to intervene personally today to get Israel's government to halt this latest round of settlement expansion.
Dear Secretary Rice,

I am writing to ask you to once again convince the Israeli government to freeze settlement construction, as you did last year.

Despite repeated promises to the United States to freeze settlement expansion, the Israeli government has just approved more new settlement construction on the West Bank.

I believe Israel will only be secure and the Middle East stable when Israel makes peace with its neighbors, including the Palestinians. Continued settlement expansion on the West Bank is a major obstacle to making progress toward peace. Settlement expansion undermines Palestinian moderates, deepens the divide separating the sides and undercuts the economic and security interests of Israel in the long run.

It is clear that without American intervention, Israel on its own won't bring settlement expansion to an end.

Only then will the time be right for real negotiations leading to two states for two peoples, living side by side, in real peace and security.

Please do what it takes to encourage the Israeli government to freeze settlement construction.

Thank you for your time.
