PALESTINE: Tent for school children demolished hours after it was built

On 16 March 2013 the South Hebron Hills Popular Committee built a tent to protect school children from Tuba and Maghayir Al Abeed waiting for their military escort. Hours after the ceremonious construction of the tent, the Israeli military demolished it and arrested one of the internationals present.

Prayers for Peacemakers, March 13, 2013

Pray for all connected to grids of power, that we may learn from the excluded, threatened and expelled how to overcome apathy, indifference and collusion as powers and principalities target land, air, sea, life. May we welcome, not dread, God's new thing.

SOUTH HEBRON HILLS: Eight villages face expulsion in Firing Zone 918

Imagine that your neighborhood was declared a firing range. You are threatened with forced evacuation. Demolition orders are issued for your home, your church and the school your children attend. Your land will cease to belong to you, and your livestock will be removed.

Prayers for Peacemakers, February 13, 2013

Lord, restore dignity to those who demolish homes, irrigation systems and olive groves, who practice bombing and shooting all night near residential areas, or oppress by other weapons from the arsenal of occupation.  By the prayers of the faithful, from intended oppression, fashion Beloved Community.

ABORIGINAL JUSTICE/PALESTINE REFLECTION: Recognizing Palestine in my Jewish identity

"Where is Palestine?" I asked my mother.

"You donā€™t know?!" she replied incredulously. "Palestine isnā€™t a real place. It doesnā€™t exist."

PALESTINE REFLECTION: A night in Firing Zone 918

I don't have to comfort a crying baby awakened by an explosion.
I don't have to wake up for school the next day.
I don't have to feel this fear every night. 

PALESTINE: Foreign troops "train" on Palestinian fields

In Masafer Yatta, Palestine, Israeli
soldiers began military exercises

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.
