J Street Statement on Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize

Friday, October 09, 2009 at 9:21 am

The American Jewish pro-peace pro-Israel pro-Palestinian organization urges the Nobel Laureate president to use his enhanced prestige to push forward with an end to the Arab-Israeli conflict:

J Street congratulates President Obama on being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. The President’s bold international leadership has had a profound impact on global dynamics, reestablishing hope for a secure peace both in the Middle East and around the globe.

We urge President Obama to take this opportunity to add further momentum towards realizing the vision of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and broader regional peace that he laid out in the early months of his presidency.

The road to real peace and security is long and difficult. Only strong, substantive and sustained leadership will allow us to realize the dream of a two-state solution and comprehensive peace agreement.

J Street hopes for the day when Israeli and Palestinian leaders share this prize with the President for their work in achieving true peace and security for Israel, the Palestinians, and the entire region.
