This is a time when people make resolutions for the coming year. The Middle East is the home to the birth of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. All three trace their roots back to Abraham and believe in charity, respect, and empathy. Unfortunately, the Middle East has been scarred by violence, war, and greed, and compassion and tolerance are in short supply.
Now is the time to make choices for the New Year. The Global Campaign for Middle East Peace declares 2012 the year for Middle East Peace. We are working in the US Congress and in the business and interfaith communities in Washington DC, Israel, and the West Bank. We are individuals from all walks of life and different faiths that have come together to make a difference for the people in the Middle East so that they all have peace, education, health-care, income, and justice. We are committed to taking action that will empower the people of the region to transform their environment such that Israel and Palestine are living side by side in peace, security and prosperity. We call upon you to register your resolutions with us at MiddleEastPeaceCampaign.org and make peace and security a reality in 2012.
