New York, July 1, 2011—Activists from OneVoice Israel (OVI) went to Likud headquarters in Tel Aviv June 30 to deliver the ruling party a message: we're still waiting.
The activists hung posters demanding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his party fill in the missing parts of a future agreement with the Palestinians. Thursday night's activity was in tandem with the online segment of the same campaign OVI launched on Facebook.
"Likud needs to remember that we still want and hope for a proposal, and we'll be waiting for it," said Danny Shaket, OVI's coordinator of the Youth Leadership Program and leader of the event.
OVI Executive Director Tal Harris said, “only 10 weeks ahead of the vote on Palestinian statehood in the UN General Assembly, Netanyahu is still torn between his own personal and political ideology and the overwhelming consensus both nationally and internationally for the two-state solution.”
OVI invites everyone who cares for Israel's future, including Likud Party members, to inspire Netanyahu with bold and effective ideas for a framework of a final status agreement with the Palestinians.
