American Justice Promoters Push for Action on Coming Israel/Palestine
IL -- Some time in the fall, President Bush and Secretary of State
Condolessa Rice will hold an international meeting dedicated to progress
on a peace agreement that would end the conflict between Israelis
and the Palestinians and create a viable state of Palestine. The
meeting will take place in Annapolis, Maryland.
The North American Justice Promoters are asking Dominicans to take
action that pushes for serious talks and diplomatic progress toward
a Palestinian state and lasting, genuine peace in the region.
According to Dusty Farnan, OP (Adrian), Co-Promoter of Justice and
Peace, congressional support for this diplomatic initiative is important
and Dominicans are being urged to call or write to members of
Congress, encouraging them to express their support for the summit.
"We see this as an important new initiatives at a time when
the US has been very slow to engage in meaningful and sustained dialogue," said
"It is very important that Congress support this effort and
therefore it is imperative that US citizens express their hopes for
peace at this time," she said.
"Most of all, we would like Dominicans, as US citizens, to contact
their representatives and ecourage Church leaders to support this
new opportunity for lasting peace ," said
Chuck Dahm, OP (St. Albert) Co-Promoter for Justice and Peace.
