Paul Calls On President Obama To Support OneVoice
Paul Calls On President Obama To Support The OneVoice Movement
A GRASSROOTS ORGANISATION WORKING TO END PALESTINIAN-ISRAELI CONFLICT
Paul McCartney has recently written to President Barack Obama
making him aware of an organisation called OneVoice an organisation
that Paul first came into contact with during his memorable trip to
Israel and Palestine last year.
The OneVoice Movement currently has over 650,000 signatories
(equally represented by Palestinians and Israelis) and they work
steadfastly towards a two state solution to the Israel/Palestine
conflict, endeavoring to ensure that the voice of the moderate
majority on both sides is heard and acted upon by their respective
leaders. Earlier this year Paul officially joined OneVoice‚
International Board of Advisors, which includes names such as Danny
DeVito and Muhammed Ali.
Whilst performing in Tel Aviv last year, Paul’s message was
to bring people together via the power of music a sentiment that is
shared by two singers, Noa, an Israeli Jew and Mira Awad, an Israeli
Arab, who are members of OneVoice Israel. They are to perform a song
together for the Eurovision song contest titled There Must Be Another Way.
Paul said: "This seems to me like a great idea, the symbolism
of two people from both sides coming together to spread their message
of peace via music is exciting and inspiring for me. I hope President
Obama looks into this Organisation and feels that OneVoice could be
part of a peaceful solution.”
When Noa and Mira heard of Paul‚ involvement with OneVoice
they said: Paul is a great source of inspiration for both of us, and
we would like thank him from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing
gift he has given us with his music and for supporting the great work
that everyone at OneVoice is doing. Our first collaboration, 8 years
ago, was a cover of Paul‚ song, We Can Work It Out‚.
We’ve performed it all over the world, using the timeless words
and music to carry our small torch of hope for a better future.‚
About OneVoice The OneVoice Movement is an international mainstream
grassroots movement with almost 650,000 signatories in roughly equal
numbers both in Israel and in Palestine, and over 2,000 highly-trained
youth leaders. It aims to amplify the voice of the overwhelming- but
heretofore silent- majority of moderates who wish for peace and
prosperity, empowering them to demand accountability from elected
representatives and work toward a two-state solution guaranteeing an
end to occupation and violence, and a viable, independent Palestinian
state at peace with Israel. OneVoice counts on its Board over 60
foremost dignitaries and business leaders across a wide spectrum of
politics and beliefs, joining as OneVoice for conflict resolution.
