Letters from Readers


Especially in the current political climate, it’s easy to know in our heads that people support us and equally easy for our hearts to forget. Please know you are held in prayer, honoured in heart, and agreed with intellectually. Thank you for the work you do for a world of wholeness, of justice and peace.

I’m very happy to see that you are going to Detroit. I’m so glad that CPT and other peacemakers are seeing that we need to pay attention to what’s happening in our own communities!

I have followed your excellent work ever since October 2004 when I was part of a peace delegation. It was a life changing experience for me. I thank you for your ability to remain in place and send information to us in the outside world. I am Jewish. While I remain forever proud of my religion, I am, to say the least, disgusted, horrified and very angry with the Israeli government.

I am part of a group of Canadian Mennonites that recently returned from a trip to the Middle East. We visited the CPT team in Hebron and were deeply moved and inspired by the people there. I would like to support the ongoing work of CPT.

The first time I (almost literally) ran into CPT was at the School of the Americas Watch vigil at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia. CPTers were everywhere with bright red caps. The Iraqi Kurdistan reflection on forgiveness (p. 5) is an inspiring example of truly being instruments of peace!

I’m so grateful for the help you give to those without a voice.  I’m particularly encouraged when I hear the stories of you travelling with children in Palestine to arrive safely at their schools. You are in my prayers.
