For more information from Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), including how you can get involved, you can visit the MCC U.S. Washington Office website, and the MCC Palestine website, including the “Mennonite Central Committee Discussion Paper on Palestine-Israel,” and “Peacebuilding in Palestine/Israel: A Discussion Paper” meant to help facilitate a conversation in communities in North America about stewardship, divestment, and economic justice. And check out the MCC Palestine Update blog for regular worker updates from the region.

Also, see the fall 2010 issue of the MCC U.S. Washington Office Memo, “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem: U.S. Policy towards Israel-Palestine,”as well as issues of the MCC Peace Office Newsletter such as “Christian Zionism and Peace in the Holy Land” and“Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions: A Question for the Church.”

See the winter 2010 issue of MCC’s publication a Common Place, featuring the cover story “Remembering…as a path to peace” that tells the story of Palestinians and Israelis working for peace. The September/October 2007 issue of a Common Placefeatures the cover story “Bitter water” that looks more deeply at the water situation in Palestine-Israel.

The September/October 2004 issue features the cover story “Dividing Wall” which profiles MCC’s work in the Occupied Palestinian Territories and the impact of Israel’s separation barrier on Palestinian livelihoods.

See the MCC documentary Children of the Nakba, to hear more about MCC’s work and the experiences of Palestinian refugees. You can also check out MCC Photo Galleries like “Working for peace in a land that needs love”—which highlights the experience of Palestinian Christians who describe the struggles of living under Israeli military occupation and the sense of isolation they feel as they wait for justice, for peace and for basic human rights—or the photo gallery “Cultivating livelihoods in Palestine”—which illustrates MCC’s partnership with Palestinian non-profit organizations who are helping rural households in the West Bank increase food production and improve livelihoods.

For more on how you can see the situation for yourself, learn about opportunities to visit Palestine-Israel through Mennonite Central Committee, Christian Peacemaker Teams, or Mennonite Church USA. And for more on how you can contribute to this work, visit MCC’s Global Family website and learn about education sponsorship opportunities.
