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.
