Over the last year, Avaaz has been running the following campaign: "The Palestinian-Israeli conflict lies at the heart of a global clash threatening to divide us all. People from every corner of the world want a just and lasting peace in the Middle East - and the international community can and must help bring all sides to the table. Start Real Middle East Talks Now, and stay at the negotiating table until we have peace." Do you support or oppose us running this campaign, or are you not sure?
