Can we talk?
This is the question being posed by “Let’s Talk,” a new campaign from Brit Tzedek v’Shalom (the Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace) that is building support among American Jews to urge U.S. diplomatic engagement in Arab-Israeli peacemaking and changing the way American Jews talk and think about Israel. “Let’s Talk” aims to encourage the Bush Administration to urgently promote and facilitate talks between Israel and the Palestinians, as well as Israel and Syria and Israel and Lebanon. It also aims to reinvigorate dialogue and debate within the American Jewish community about a negotiated two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
