About SEARCH: SEARCH is a national non-profit human rights and
educational organization, founded in 1972, which seeks a just
Israeli-Palestinian peace based on the inalienable rights of both
peoples. SEARCH's focus is on improving media coverage on
Palestine/Israel. SEARCH believes that justice for Palestinians and
security for Israeli Jews are not mutually exclusive, but
interdependent. The attainment of Palestinian rights is therefore a
desirable goal in itself, as well as a means of securing Israel's
future. That future cannot be assured while Palestinian rights are
denied. SEARCH seeks a US policy committed to the rights of both
peoples. Unfortunately, US policy, which includes aid to Israel of
over three billion dollars a year, enables Israel to disregard
international law, human rights, and democratic values (Human Rights
<http://www.searchforjustice.org/petition_intro.html>). No peace is
possible without a change in US policy. A prerequisite for such
change is a US public both better informed and insistent on a just
resolution of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
