Prayers for Peacemakers, January 9, 2013

Pray that justice-seeking communities in Palestine, Israel and around the world stand firm to prevent the eviction of more than a thousand villagers in Massafer Yatta, south of Hebron, West Bank, and the conversion of their homeland into a bombing range.

AL KHALIL (HEBRON) REFLECTION: An unholy day

The call to prayer is as
holy as the tolling bells
in my home church.

Why is answering it made
so horrendously difficult?

AL-KHALIL REFLECTION: A New Dawn?

How many more villages will have to be demolished, how many more Palestinians beaten up and arrested, how many more children will have to live in fear of losing their homes and schools before my country stands up and supports Palestinians' right to self-determination?

Prayers for Peacemakers, November 21, 2012

God, be a pillar of nonviolent defense against occupation, apartheid, domination, theft, bombardment, phosphorus chemical weapons, missiles, drones, assassination of journalists, propaganda, home demolition, sexism, racism and despair. Let offenses yield to nationhood, dignity and zealous compliance with the Geneva Conventions in Gaza and everywhere.

A shopkeeper facing intimidation and the threat of vandalism lays claim to the peace intoned by those who want him gone.
