President Barack Obama is reportedly deciding whether to make a major policy speech on Israeli-Palestinian peace in the coming weeks.
This could be an important opportunity for the president to (1) make clear that he remains personally invested in Israeli-Palestinian peace, (2) to lay out his vision for peace, and (3) to explain how he plans to move the parties towards this goal.
A speech is not enough. But it's an opportunity to start turning things around. It must be followed by action and genuine leadership. We need a two-state solution. The occupation must end. The time is now.
Write President Obama. Show the White House that Americans want our president to reinvigorate his peace efforts.
