REAL MIDDLE EAST PEACE TALKS NOW: Stop the Clash of Civilizations

Angry and excited! Over 80,000 people signed Avaaz's campaign for Real Middle East Peace Talks, and the diplomatic buzz is growing. We put up billboards in Jerusalem created by members there, and they got national media coverage – then a couple of extremists vandalised the billboards.

This is good news -- it shows we're making a real impact. Let's put the billboards back up with even more signatures, and put them in Tel Aviv as well as Jerusalem! Can you help grow the campaign to more than 100,000 voices for peace before Friday? Click here to sign the petition:

That'll show the vandals: every time they deface our message we'll put it back up with more support. Most Israelis and Palestinians say they want proper negotiations: we refuse to be silenced by a small minority.

At this moment of upheaval in Middle East politics, these mock travel adverts are challenging and disarming the Israeli public -- here's some of what the Jerusalem Post said:

While enticing Israelis to travel by featuring attractive women and scenery are nothing new, these billboards were created to stop Israelis in their tracks. These ads feature "enemy states" such as Saudi Arabia and Syria in a whole new way, with only the fine print noting that the price is for one room and a double bed - dependent on the Saudi peace plan.

"Israelis visiting Damascus, Dubai, even Jericho is inconceivable today – unless they're in uniform," said Hilder. "We wanted to help Israelis look and think again about the Arab Peace Initiative."

We've had a great response to the ads, though Israel's politicians are still dancing around the idea of real peace talks based on 1967 borders. So don't let the extremists silence us – join the campaign, get us to 100,000 and we'll put up more billboards!

With hope,

Paul, Galit, Ricken, Ben, Graziela, Iain and all at Avaaz

Ps: our Stop the Clash video (part of this campaign) got an amazing response from people all round the world and won a non-profit video competition ( ). See it here:
