Developed by the RAND Corporation, in collaboration with Suisman Urban Design, the Arc is a visionary plan for creating a viable, prosperous Palestinian state. The Arc provides for a Palestinian national transportation and infrastructure corridor, along with key links between hub stations and the inner cities of the principal cities of Palestine. What's more, the Arc inspires people to believe that a viable, positive future for Palestine is attainable. Thus the Arc can engender an upward spiral of hope and confidence, giving political leaders the space to make the difficult compromises that none currently has the capacity to make. As the latest attempts at peace negotiations unfold over the next few months, we encourage our political leaders to express their support for the Arc.

Letter to
U.S. House of Representatives
U.S. Senate
President of the United States
I am writing to request that you consider a new approach for making progress on peace between Israel and Palestine.

That something new is the Palestine Arc. Developed by the RAND Corporation, in collaboration with Suisman Urban Design, the Arc is a visionary plan for creating a viable, prosperous Palestinian state that can live peacefully alongside Israel and thrive. The Arc provides for a Palestinian national transportation and infrastructure corridor, along with key links between hub stations and the historic centers of the principal cities of Palestine.

The Arc creates an economic and social development corridor, but it does much more than that. It inspires people to believe that a viable, positive future for Palestine is attainable. Thus the Arc can engender an upward spiral of hope and confidence, giving political leaders the space to make the difficult compromises that none currently has the capacity to make.

As an elected official, you have the power to break the political deadlock that has marked the Israel-Palestine issue for decades now by putting the Arc on the agenda. Indeed, you have the power to make sure another generation of children does not grow up in the shadow of war, death, and lost opportunity.
