APN on Campus outlines the three main arenas in which student advocacy takes place, and tells how progressive student leaders and their organizations can be effective advocates for a pro-Israel, pro-peace agenda on campus.
Person for Peace: Aaron Mann
Aaron Mann is the Outreach and Research Associate for Americans for Peace Now. He is a former APN intern who recently received a Master of Public Policy from the University of Maryland. Aaron was also Dr. Yoram Peri's Graduate Teaching Assistant at the Gildenhorn Institute for Israel Studies at UMD. Previously, he was the Israel and International Affairs intern at the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington.

Two-state principles presented to respondents include Israel for Jews and Palestine for Palestinians, with Palestinian refugees having the right to return only to their new country.

Two opinion surveys conducted by different Israeli pollsters in December show that most Likud-Beiteinu and the further-right Habayit Hayehudi voters would support a peace agreement establishing a demilitarized Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders, Israel's retention of major settlement blocs and a division of Jerusalem. The two polls also revealed that two thirds of all Israelis support such an agreement.
On campus, we asked my fellow students to tell us why peace in Israel is important to them.
Their responses are powerful. There's pro-peace energy on campus. Many college students are like me: We know that without peace, Israel's very existence in danger.
However, what makes his case so "compelling" is its diversion from reality on almost every level. The truth is that the U.S. should take advantage of this opportunity to push Israel and the Palestinians to a peace agreement.

The ninety-nine papers and proposals formulated during the twentieth century regarding the future of Jerusalem(1) testify to the importance of the city for Judaism, Christianity, and Islam - and to the ongoing battle of interests being waged between the diplomatic and political representatives of these three religions.
