Why Do You Stand With J Street?

October 14, 2009



J Street asked pro-Israel, pro-peace, pro-democracy Americans why they stand with J
Street as we work to achieve a two-state solution and secure true peace
for Israel and the entire Middle East.

“My children were born in Jerusalem during the bus and cafe bombings
of the second intifada.  J Street’s powerful voicing of the majority
opinion that strong US leadership is required to achieve a peaceful
two-state solution gives me hope that Israeli children won’t have to
live through a time like that again.”

– Janette, Massachusetts

“I stand with J Street because as an American-born Jew whose father
fought in WWII, I love Israel, and believe passionately in its right to
exist, and also think that the path to guaranteeing a future of
prosperity, peace and hope involves a two-state solution and reaching
out to the Palestinians.”

– Stacey, New Mexico
