I am often asked by readers where they might direct support if they want to help the forces working towards a two state solution in the Israel/Palestine standoff.
One option is a new political action committee called “A New Policy PAC“.
This new Arab-American aggregator of political contributions was recently founded by a good friend Sama Adnan, who moved back to Washington last year after receiving his doctorate at UCLA.
A quick roster (see more here) of the organizing focus of A New Policy PAC is:
A swift end to the Gaza siege.
An immediate freeze of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
An end to Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem.
The establishment of a Palestinian state next to a secure Israel.
The resolution of all Arab-Israeli disputes.
An end to nuclear proliferation and a nuclear-free Middle East.
So, if you are so inclined to help out a new group and an important cause — this could be an option for you.
