New AJC Film: 'No' is the Real Obstacle to Middle East Peace

New AJC Film: 'No' is the Real Obstacle to Middle East Peace

NEW YORK, June 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AJC has released a hard-hitting 5 minute film dealing with the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Entitled "No: The Real Obstacle to Peace," the film asserts that the main hurdle to peace in the region is not the issue of settlements or land or borders, but rather the idea that Jews have "no right to a state in a territory where they have lived throughout history."

"As our new film makes clear, Prime Minister Netanyahu's offer for an equitable peace with the Palestinians based upon two states living side by side has so far been rebuffed," said AJC Executive Director David Harris. "And he's been rebuffed in much the same way as his predecessors - Barak, Sharon and Olmert. We're seeing a pattern of rejectionism that is as old as the conflict itself."

"No: The Real Obstacle to Peace" highlights the role played by rejectionist forces, like Hamas and Hezbollah, and their Iranian sponsors. "It's very telling that the Tehran regime continues to back deadly terror groups while crushing the democratic aspirations of its own people at the same time," Harris said.

"No: The Real Obstacle to Peace" is available in both English and Spanish versions on YouTube. AJC's channel can be accessed here.
