Video: Peace Needs Partners

-- Geri Palast

The Israel Action Network (IAN) and the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York (JCRC-NY) are gathering signatures for a petition opposing a Palestinian unilateral declaration of independence (UDI) at the U.N.

We need your continued support to push for bilateral negotiations by watching and circulating this important video with your communities, families and friends to remind the Palestinian Authority that a unilateral path won't lead to peace. Peace needs two partners: Israelis and Palestinians.

In order to achieve this, both parties need to sit down, together, at the negotiating table and resume direct discussions, not through a unilateral bid as the Palestinians put forth at the UN. This is the message we are sending with the Israel Action Network's video, "Peace Needs Partners."

More after the jump.

Publisher :: Video: Peace Needs Partners
It's the same message submitted by the Quartet, comprised of the United States, European Union, Russia and the UN Secretary General, and it's the sentiment echoed by you, over 105,000 collective voices calling for a return to the negotiating table without preconditions.

Our petition is a landmark achievement but we're convinced that with your support, we can go even higher than 105,000. We will continue to take signatures up until the U.N. General Assembly votes on the Palestinians' request for statehood, which is a date still to be determined. It is critical to raise our voice and remind world leaders that UDI only serves to further derail the peace process.
