I was not starry-eyed about President Obama's election; I was concerned about whether he would do anything to bring justice to the Palestinians and a real and lasting peace to the Eastern Mediterranean. I try not to make negative predictions about the future, but I lost some hope, yes I did, after the horror of Israel's assault on Gaza of 2008-2009.
Jewish Voice For Peace does hope to pressure President Obama for peace and justice. They ask you to sign their petition to him. I believe JVP and similar organizations are our best hope for effecting any kind of change on United States Foreign Policy. If you feel moved, please sign and forward.
