Forum: on the Human Suffering in Palestine and Israel

Submitted by Rose Jones and Rev. Peggy Jensen

Tuesday, March 14 2017

There will be another Forum on Palestine and Israel on March 23 from 1:30 to 4:00 p.m. at Gabriola United and St. Martin of Tours Anglican Church at 2600 South Road.  

Much has happened since the last forum on Sept. 13, 2016.  

For example, the United Nations Security Council has passed a resolution condemning the continuing settlement process. 

Recent public opinion polls commissioned by Independent Jewish Voices have shown surprising results about Canadians’ attitude to the conflict. 

Meanwhile, suffering in Palestine and Israel continues. 

Many thousands of people around the world are working for non-violent solutions to end the suffering and achieve a just peace. 

A number of witnesses who have experience in the region will be on hand to provide their perspective, share their experience, and answer questions. 

All are invited to this afternoon of sharing and learning.
