11-15-06 - In Mideast, time for White House to push for new peace negotiations If one goes to the Web sites of most U.S. Jewish organizations, it's hard to find clear statements supporting the Israeli government's commitment to a two-state solution.

This may explain why Congress and even the White House see no benefit in engaging in a concerted and unrelenting diplomatic effort to help Israel find a peaceful solution to the threats that surround it. That should now change.....The American Jewish community has well-deserved political clout. For those who remember Jewish passivity and powerlessness, there's great pride in the ability of Jewish advocacy groups to affect policy in Washington.
