Letter from Six Organizations to the New York Times Regarding Israeli Settlements
October 31st, 2005
In May 2005 a number of the undersigned groups sent the New York Times editors two letters requesting clarification of the Times editors position on the legality of Israeli settlements in light of the broad international consensus on the illegality of all Israeli settlements.

November 15th, 2002
In 1993, with the Oslo Accords, we seemed so close to peace. Today there is horrible bloodshed. What happened? The fact is that no one is spelling peace with a "j".
