Jewish Peace Lobby

"Founded in 1989, The Jewish Peace Lobby is an American Jewish organization which seeks to promote a just and lasting resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The organization is now made up of over 5,000 members and 400 rabbis. JPL has worked on issues such as on-the-ground Israeli-Palestinian cooperation. In addition to JPL's grassroots efforts, it has worked closely with Israeli, Palestinian, and American policy-makers." [1]

"Dr. Jerome M. Segal is a Senior Research Scholar at the Center for Intenational and Strategic Studies as well as a Research Scholar at the Institute for Philosophy and Public Policy at the University of Maryland. In addition, he is President and founder of The Jewish Peace Lobby." [2]

The Nusseibeh-Ayalon Initiative

"Over the last two years, Ami Ayalon, former head of Israel’s internal security service (the Shin Bet), and Sari Nusseibeh, former PLO official and now President of Al-Quds University, have worked to develop an end-of-the-conflict vision. They have agreed upon a short, but powerful statement, that outlines how the key issues are to be resolved. Recently, they announced the formation of a joint Israeli-Palestinian effort called The People’s Voice; its goal is to have hundreds of thousands of Israelis and Palestinians sign their name to the proposed framework for ending the conflict. They believe that by gaining and demonstrating wide public support for this plan they can move towards the necessary peace between the two peoples." [3]
