Peace in Mid-East links

I’ve only recently heard of some of these organisations. But a first glance leads me to think I should look deeper. I’ll be editing the page again soon.

First, another page of links: Enough Occupation — charities, trade unions, faith and other campaign groups who want peace in the Mid-East.


Israeli committee against house demolitions — What it says on the tin. And now with extra ICAHD Blog.

Peace Now — Founded in 1978, it’s still at work today. Its activities include a “settlement watch”, monitoring illegal outposts.

Jews for Justice for Palestinians

Gush Shalom — The Peace Bloc — Founded by Uri Avnery.

Courage to Refuse“We hereby declare that we shall continue serving in the Israel Defense Forces in any mission that serves Israel’s defense. The missions of occupation and oppression do not serve this purpose – and we shall take no part in them.” And a list of those who have signed.

Combatants for Peace — People from both sides who have joined together rather fight each other.

Breaking the Silence — Ex-Israeli soldiers give their account of the occupation, with the aim to end it.

MachsomWatch — Voluntary group of Israeli women conducting daily observations at military checkpoints to monitor human rights abuses.

Ta’ayush (“life in common”) — Arab and Jewish citizens of Israel “working to break down the walls of racism and segregation by constructing a true Arab-Jewish partnership.”

Coalition of Women For Peace — Jewish and Arab women who want an end to the occupation, a two-state solution with Jerusalem as the joint capital of both. And recognition by Israel of “responsibility for the results of the 1948 war”.

Anarchists Against The Wall — Israelis (some of whom have been jailed) who are against the Apartheid Wall.

Blogs
Aron’s Israel Peace Weblog — Rarely updated now.
