Senator Feinstein (D-CA) authors letter praising President's vision for Middle East peace

February 25th, 2009

On his second day in office, President Obama appointed George Mitchell, the broker of Northern Ireland peace, to serve as his Special Envoy for Middle East Peace. Then, 66 Members of the House of Representatives signed onto a resolution endorsing Mitchell and the President's vision for Middle East Peace - more than have endorsed any other pro-Israel, pro-peace Resolution in years. Now, it's the Senate's turn. Then, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) circulated a letter to her colleagues endorsing the trip and President Obama’s vision of a new era of engagement and peacemaking. With J Street and other allies in the pro-Israel, pro-peace movement encouraging members of the Senate to sign the letter, Senator Feinstein sent the letter this week with a total of 33 signatures, including her own.
