Tell Secretary Rice: Israel Must Stop Settlement Activity

August 12, 2008

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. Just fill out the form below to get started.

Letter Text
Dear 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.I believe Israel will only be secure and the Middle East stable when
Israel makes peace with its neighbors. 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. Please do what it takes to
encourage the Israeli government to freeze settlement construction.

Sincerely,
