Progress: A fund for Israeli-Palestinian peace

Grandiose international conferences, hollow United Nations declarations, and impassioned speeches by secretaries of state will never restart the peace process so long as they treat Israelis and Palestinians as people who peace can be forced upon, rather than people who need to be brought together to negotiate a series of difficult compromises.

 

MP Joan Ryan writes in The Times: If we want peace in the Middle East, we must fund it

The late Shimon Peres, one of Israel’s most indefatigable peace-makers, once said: “The way to make peace is not through governments. It is through people.” He knew that – even in the most challenging of times – we must never give up on the search for peace. I sincerely hope that by supporting my bill, Parliament can underline its support for that search.

 

MP Joan Ryan writes in the The JC: Israeli-Palestinian co-existence funding bill introduced to parliament

“A bill introduced to Parliament today, calling for Britain to promote a fund to support co-existence projects between Israelis and Palestinians, has achieved cross-party support.”
