Washington, DC – Americans for Peace Now (APN) today rolled out a new policy position supporting the conditioning of the military aid Israel receives from the United States. The new policy position is laid out in an article published today in Time Magazine by APN’s President and CEO Hadar Susskind.
Americans for Peace Now (APN) welcomes the swearing in of Israel's new government and wishes it success in addressing the challenges that the state of Israel faces.
APN bids farewell to former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and wishes success to incoming Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.
Washington, DC – Americans for Peace Now (APN) is excited to announce the hiring of two new staff members, Madeleine Cereghino our new Director of Government Relations, and Claire Davidson Miller our new Strategic Communications and Development Associate.
Washington, DC – Americans for Peace Now (APN) welcomes the announcement of a new governing coalition in Israel.
Americans for Peace Now (APN) congratulates Isaac Herzog, who was elected today to become Israel's 11th president, and urges him to use his position to advance the cause of Israeli-Palestinian peace.
Americans for Peace Now opposes Rep. Guy Reschenthaler’s (R-PA) resolution, which absurdly characterizes comments critical of Israeli policies by a fellow member of the House of Representative’s as “antisemitic.”
Reschenthaler is introducing a congressional resolution to condemn Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) for saying that because Israel is more powerful than its Palestinian adversaries in the Gaza Strip, it bears more responsibility for maintaining peace in the region. Jayapal, who spoke in an interview with CNN, also said that as a tool to induce a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, the Biden administration should hold a US arms sale to Israel.
Americans for Peace Now welcomes the ceasefire agreement reached between Israel and Hamas and thanks the third parties who helped broker it. APN urges both sides to adhere to the ceasefire and – in the coming days and weeks – to do their utmost to stabilize the situation.
After a week of deadly hostilities, with a horrific toll in Israel, the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and East Jerusalem, Americans for Peace Now (APN) reiterates its call for an immediate ceasefire.
APN and its many supporters and activists throughout the United States – as well as our friends at Israel's peace movement – are heartbroken as Israelis and Palestinians, Arabs and Jews, bury their loved ones. We send our condolences to the bereaved families on both sides, and wish recovery and health to the many hundreds who have been injured and displaced.
As violence in Jerusalem triggers hostilities across Israel’s border with the Gaza Strip, Americans for Peace Now (APN) urges all the parties and stakeholders to take action to prevent further bloodshed and to stop the escalation toward war.
The steep escalation of the past weeks requires responsible leadership in the short term, and underscores the need
for renewed US-led Israeli-Palestinian diplomatic engagement to end the occupation and advance peace efforts.
Recent developments again demonstrate that the current situation is not viable and requires immediate
The Biden Administration may not have wanted to prioritize Israel/Palestine. They may have hoped to maintain the status quo. But the status quo is no more, and looking away does not make this crisis go away.
We at Americans for Peace Now are following with horror the reports from Israel, as the casualty tally of the disaster on Mount Meron keeps rising.
