A good friend and colleague of mine in the struggle for Palestinian rights,
Nancy Murray, will co-lead a delegation by the Interfaith Peace-builders
October/November 2013. Information attached.

I recommend Nancy highly after I've watched her gain and express deep
insights into the Israel-Palestine situation. I doubt you will find a
better delegation and leader. I made my first trip to the region in 2003
with IFPB, then part of Fellowship of Reconciliation. IFPB fully supports
former delegates to speak and write their experiences, as they have done
for me.

>From their announcement:

   1.

   Nancy Murray has been an activist for peace with justice in the Middle
   East since 1988, when she paid her first visit to the West Bank and Gaza
   Strip. Holding a Ph.D. from Oxford University, she has taught at
   universities and worked as a human rights activist in the UK and Kenya as
   well as the United States. She co‐founded and directed The Middle East
   Justice Network (1989–1995) and the Gaza Mental Health Foundation (2000 to
   present). The author of Palestinians: Life Under Occupation (1991), she
   has written numerous articles on the Israeli‐ Palestinian conflict. For
   the past 25 years, she has served as director of education at the ACLU of
   Massachusetts.

If you have any inkling of a wish to visit and learn first hand, this is
your opportunity.

PLEASE CIRCULATE WIDELY

BTW, they can offer scholarships. And like I've done, you can raise funds,
a good way to bring others to the issues.
