Peace Now

Peace Now is an extra-parliamentary movement committed to the right of Israel to live within secure borders and the right of our neighbors to the same, including the right of the Palestinians to self-determination.

Profile Information

My personal story:
Peace Now timeline from Officers' Letter in 1978 to its reissuing in 1998...

1978
Founding of Shalom Achshav (Peace Now)
The largest grassroots movement in Israel's history is founded in 1978 by 348 reserve army officers and combat soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces
1981
Establishment of American for Peace Now
Networks of support for Shalom Achshav emerge around the United States and a national movement begins to form
1990
Launching of Settlement Watch Project
This project has become one of the most reliable and respected sources of information on settlement activity
1997
Expanding Washington Advocacy
APN launches its Action Alert Network and Adopt-a-Congressperson program in support of American mediation efforts in the Arab-Israeli conflict

And continuing...
Why I want peace:
APN is the premier voice for American Jews who support Israel and know that only peace will ensure Israel’s security, prosperity, and continued viability as a Jewish, democratic state. Positions advocated for more than two decades by APN and Shalom Achshav – like calling for the evacuation of settlements and the creation of a viable Palestinian state – are now recognized by most Israelis and non-Israelis as basic requirements both for peace and for a secure future for Israel.
Interests and activities:
Israel at 60: Challenges for the Future featuring Hagit Ofran, Peace Now Settlement Watch Director - Hagit Ofran covers the West Bank by foot, car, and plane to observe and record the ever-changing topography of Israeli settlements and settlement-related construction. Peace Now views settlement expansion, much of which violates Israel law, as undermining Israeli security, draining financial resources, and jeopardizing the viability of a negotiated, two-state solution

Peace Now Demonstration in Jerusalem: "Only a Peace Agreement Can Beat Hamas!" - "Only peace can beat Hamas"
"Now-Peace!"
"Only a political agreement can end the violence"
These were prominent slogans at the spontaneous Peace Now gathering on January 18, 2009, outside the Prime Minister's residence in Jerusalem following the announcement of a ceasefire by both Israel and Hamas.
At the time of the rally, the Prime Minister was hosting the heads of state of France, Britain, Germany and other European countries who had attended a summit on the region's conflict only hours earlier in Egypt.
The activists rallied to demand that the Prime Minister now take this opportunity to forge ahead with real peace negotiations with the Palestinians. Peace Now believes that the success of this latest round of conflict with Hamas is dependant on what will be the government's policy the day after the ceasefire.
