Tell Your Representative: Support Obama’s Bold Leadership in the Mideast

May 13, 2009

President Obama is getting ready to set his course for achieving real peace and security in the Middle East.

But some are telling the President to go slow and take a hands-off
approach to negotiations, rather than taking the immediate action
needed to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian and Israeli-Arab conflicts.

This Administration’s first year is crucial to promoting peace in the region – and the President needs to know that he has strong support in Congress if he chooses a path of leadership and real action.

Representatives Steve Cohen (D-TN), Charles Boustany (R-LA), and Russ Carnahan (D-MO) have authored a bipartisan letter backing President Obama’s strong leadership in pursuit of the two-state solution and a regional comprehensive peace.
