Yes We Can: Middle East Peace (YesMEP) is a partnership of diverse religious and secular Americans in the Washington, DC metropolitan area who have come together to support President Obama’s initiative for a just and secure peace between Israelis and Palestinians based on a two-state solution. We believe that the establishment of a Palestinian state next to Israel, and a mutually satisfactory agreement regarding Jerusalem, a cornerstone of any peace agreement, will not only advance the interests of the United States, but will also provide security for Israelis, dignity and prosperity for Palestinians and a lasting peace for both nations.
