In a letter signed by over 50 Members of Parliament, the UK’s Labour Friends of Israel condemned the US decision to end funding for cross-border coexistence projects in the region. The letter expresses concern over the decision and calls on the UK to fill the void left by this funding cut by moving forward with the International Fund for Israeli-Palestinian Peace.
While the UK has an existing commitment of £3 million over three years for people-to-people programs in the region, the MPs call for broad, systematic aid to support peacebuilding efforts between Israelis and Palestinians. Noting that the UK was the first country to formally support the creation of the International Fund for Israeli-Palestinian Peace, they urged their government to work with allies in order to make the International Fund a reality.
