The fierce repression of Palestinian efforts to "shake off" the Occupation following the latest Intifada has only added urgency to our efforts.

Recognizing the profound and continuing losses suffered by both peoples over the millennia - a tragic history pervaded by recurring expropriation, exile, and death - yet cognizant of the peaceful and fruitful coexistence between Arabs and Jews during many centuries in many countries - we believe that an abundant and life-affirming future will follow the resolution of current conflict through creative compromise and the rebirth of mutual respect.
