Brit Tzedek v'Shalom
Brit Tzedek v'Shalom, also known as Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace, was an organization of American Jews and describes its members as "deeply committed to Israel's well-being through the achievement of a negotiated settlement to the long-standing Israeli–Palestinian conflict". They describe this as "necessitating an end to Israel's occupation of land acquired during the 1967 war and an end to Palestinian terrorism". The group endorses a two-state solution to the conflict. The founding president of this organization is Marcia Freedman.
In 2006, it collaborated with Americans for Peace Now and the Israel Policy Forum to lobby Congress against the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism bill (H.R. 4681)[permanent dead link]. which was supported by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). The bill eventually became law, but in a form that was quite different from the original language proposed by AIPAC.
