Hey, there are people who stand to lose much from peace between Palestine and Israel, and they're not being real honest.
The deal with OneVoice is that it gives a voice to Palestinians and Israelis for whom no one speaks. That is, OneVoice allows ordinary people, moderates, a chance to say what they want, and that upsets established interests. That is, OneVoice is a platform for people to speak up for themselves.
OneVoice Statement – Lies and Threats Savaging Truth, Palestinian Cause and Opportunity for Change
12 days ago a slanderous press release was launched by a fringe group that sparked rumors that OneVoice Palestine exists to negotiate away the rights of refugees and international law. OneVoice’s teams here come together to categorically deny this and expose the fact that some Palestinians have been misled by a sinister campaign of hate, coupled with vicious threats of violence from extremists that have spiraled out of control.
OneVoice is a civil society movement to empower the conflict resolution process from the grassroots. We have no power to affect the content of negotiations, but we do have the power to tell the leaders and international community that we will no longer accept a failure to deliver real progress. The OneVoice Mandate calls on our heads of State to commence immediate negotiations, uninterrupted until the conclusion of a vaiable Two State agreement in order to amplify moderate forces in the November negotiations. That is the power of the grassroots and without a mobilized grassroots constituency we leave our leaders open to attack and without the strength to deliver real answers.
