Join the Community of Yes!


Churches for Middle East Peace (CMEP) is working with the Community of Yes campaign to build broad bi-partisan support for balanced and determined U.S. leadership in working with Israel and the Palestinians to achieve a two state solution as part of a comprehensive Middle East peace.

Middle East peace is not a Democratic or a Republican issue.  Supporting peace is not conservative or liberal.  A negotiated peace agreement is essential for Israel, Palestinians, and U.S. national security interests.  In a recent Zogby International poll, 81% of those polled agreed that the continuing Israeli-Palestinian conflict has a negative impact on U.S. interests.  Achievement of a comprehensive Middle East peace is in the American national interest. This national imperative cuts across party and ideological lines.  Now is the time for unified American action to achieve a just and lasting peace for Israelis and Palestinians.

As someone who attended our conference in June, you are keenly aware of what is at stake during this critical time.  Therefore, we want to ask you to go one step further – get your friends, family, co-workers, and fellow church members to join the Community of Yes.  Your goal is to sign up 20 people.  If everyone who attended the conference does this, that is an additional 4,000 people added to the Community of Yes!  We are relying on our active supporters, like you, to help spread this important message.
