A new video on the pull out of troops from the Gaza borders... and leaving them guarding the West Bank. Make sure you have the volume on so you can hear the very appropriate music.

Going ahead with new sanctions at this time is reckless and irresponsible. Passing legislation that further limits U.S. negotiating options and flexibility is rash and shortsighted. Now is the time for Congress to give diplomacy a chance to work and to give the Obama Administration maximum room to maneuver.

The settlements are a serious impediment to peace; how can we move forward when at every step, Israel is building where the Palestinian state will be? Who isn't a partner? Who isn't serious?

Urgent: Please do this today!
Call your Senators today (toll free - (877) 429-0678). Tell them: OPPOSE amendments to the NDAA that would undermine the current diplomatic effort to deal with Iran.

This ruling is decisive in its manner and criticism on the state and repeated its strict disapproval of building on private Palestinian land and the need to remove any structures on private land.

This is an amazing video.  Watch it and be moved. Watch it and act. Watch it and share. Watch it and see why we need to support Peace Now, more than ever. Just watch it.

"Most Israelis have little interest in the settlements and derive no benefits from the Netanyahu government's strong support for settlements. Indeed, the Netanyahu government's focus on and investment in settlements, deprives Israelis living inside the Green Line of badly needed public support and investment. It also deprives Israelis of the opportunity for peace, security, and normalcy that can only come with an end to the Occupation."

Believe in Israel. Believe in Peace.
Introduction

The Israeli Peace Now movement, Shalom Achshav, was established in 1978, when 348 Israeli senior reserve army officers and combat soldiers came together to urge their government to sign a peace treaty with Egypt. They knew then what remains true today – real security for Israel can be achieved only through peace. In the years since its establishment Shalom Achshav has worked for the achievement of peace agreements between Israel and all her Arab neighbors, and has come to be recognized, both in Israel and abroad, as Israel’s leading grassroots, Zionist movement. Best known for mobilizing mass demonstrations, for many years Shalom Achshav has also been the only group conducting comprehensive monitoring of Israeli settlement activity in the West Bank (and the Gaza Strip, until Israel’s 2004 evacuation of Gaza settlements). Shalom Achshav is widely cited in the Israeli and international media as the foremost authority on settlements.

Americans for Peace Now (APN) was established in 1981 to mobilize support for the Israeli peace movement, Shalom Achshav (Peace Now), and has since developed into the most prominent American Jewish, Zionist organization working to achieve a comprehensive political settlement to the Arab-Israeli conflict.

We are the leading voice of American Jews who support Israel and know that only peace will ensure Israel’s security, prosperity and continued viability as a Jewish, democratic state. Positions advocated for more than two decades by APN and Shalom Achshav – like calling for the evacuation of settlements and the creation of a viable Palestinian state – are now recognized by most American Jews and Israelis as basic requirements both for peace and for a secure future for Israel.

APN is a non-partisan organization with a non-partisan mission. We supply timely information and education, providing a pro-Israel, pro-peace, American Jewish perspective on issues and legislation. APN also engages in grassroots political activism and outreach to the American Jewish and Arab American communities, opinion leaders, university students and the public at large. We further promote our agenda through press releases, editorials and personal contacts with journalists, serving as a respected source of balanced information, analysis, and commentary.
