"Freeze means Freeze"

Click here to send the President a message telling him you support his "Freeze means Freeze" approach to Israeli settlements:


Continued Israeli settlement expansion in the West Bank is a real obstacle to peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians and as President Obama said, settlements "have to be stopped."

Of course, Israeli settlements aren't the only obstacle to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The Palestinians also have responsibilities of their own: they must bring an end to terror and incitement against Israel and maintain a ceasefire in Gaza.

Israel also needs to allow for Palestinian freedom of movement in the West Bank and to open the Gaza border crossings for humanitarian supplies and reconstruction materials.

You and I know that the dance between Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Obama over settlements is just getting started. As in the past, Netanyahu will stall hoping his American backers have enough time to undermine the President's efforts in Congress or convince the President that the political costs of bold leadership are too high.

We've got to make sure the President and his Administration hear from the majority of Americans like us who support the President's call for a settlement freeze, without exceptions, right now.

Send a message to the President supporting his "Freeze means Freeze" approach to Israeli settlements:
