About Your Report:

Your Blog Outreach Campaign involves several activities to bring your information to the attention of the media and influential bloggers. Each day, we seek to make at least three connections, including posting comments to related news stories, pitching the authors of related news stories, posting comments to blogs in your subject area, and pitching blogmasters of those blogs. This report tracks our efforts. Please check back for updates throughout the campaign.

The main reason is the inability of the Palestinians and the Arab nations to recognize Israel's right to exist. Once there is mutual recognition and a drift from extremism on both sides, a solution should be attainable. This blog is dedicated to both Israelis and Palestinians who believe in a just and lasting peace between the two peoples and an end to the Israeli Occupation."
