“While the needs and concerns of the Israeli and Palestinian peoplesare different” point out OneVoice “Israelis wish to end terror andthe existential threat to Israel; Palestinians wish to end theoccupation and achieve an independent Palestinian state – the vastmajority on each side agrees that these goals are achievable only byreaching a two-state solution. What remains is to demonstrate to theelected leadership on each side that Israelis & Palestinians want anegotiated two state agreemeent, and overwhelmingly support immediatenegotiations toward that goal. Mobilizing civil society to this effectis OneVoice’s aim.”
