Jeff Halper of ICAHD and Naim Ateek of Sabeel spoke at a Council for the National Interest (CNI) hearing on February 12, 2007 in Washington.  The event was co-sponsored by the CNI and the Washington Interfaith Alliance for Middle East Peace, organizations who stress the need for a “just solution of the Arab-Israeli conflict ” and a “just peace ” , but whose websites advertise activities such as the selling of “two-sided cards with maps showing Israel’s takeover of Palestinian lands since 1946.” Such activities undermine Israel’s legitimacy, even within pre-1967 borders. The event gave Halper a platform to repeat his mantra of Israel’s apartheid” state, its "matrix of control," and to argue against the two-state solution.  (ICAHD funding is provided by the European Union.)
