CALL ON PRESIDENT OBAMA TO RECOGNIZE PALESTINE AS A STATE

negotiations have been going on between Israel and the Palestinian authority for about 20 years. what has happened : more people killed on both sides. more Israeli settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem. more Palestinian lands confiscated by Israel. more Jerusalem Palestinians lost their  ID cards and their house inside Jerusalem because of Israels policy to empty Jerusalem of all Palestinians. Israel continues to build the apartheid wall and it grabs more Palestinian lands. the negotiating partners are not equal. Israel controls the bridges  between the West Bank and Jordan. Egypt and Israel control Gaza entrances. Israel violates all international laws and the world watches. If the American administration recognizes Palestine as a state, Palestine  will be able to negotiate on equal footings with Israel. it can make agreements with other countries and become a member of the United  Nations.  issue its own currency and stop depending on Europe to pay the payroll for all PA employees.

If the American administration recognizes Palestine as a state it will be able to negotiate on equal footings with Israel. it can make agreements with other countries and become a member of the United Nations. issue its own currency and stop depending on Europe to pay the payroll for all PA employees. its time for two countries to negotiate an agreement acceptable to both sides. if the situation continues as it is now, we will never have peace in the middle east.
