#TalkPeace #Endthehate

As I write this a full Russian invasion force attacks the Ukraine. It is a tragic reminder that peace is precarious. Communities are laid waste, thousands displaced, maimed or killed. Ukrainian refugees escaping the invasion have reached 1.5 million by early March 2022. The terrible consequences of violence are nearly always paid for by the innocent victims of powerful forces.

The focus now is on Europe but the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians continues. It festers through both internal and external forces. It is extraordinary how many people outside of the region believe that you can solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by directing hate at one side or the other.

WHAT WE DOAND MESSAGES OF SUPPORT

Children of Peace is a non-partisan charity organization for Israeli and Palestinian children, aged 4 – 17, and their communities. Our aim is a shared spirit and well-being through arts, education, health and sports. Working for peace, building trust, friendship and reconciliation. So future generations might live peacefully side-by-side. We don’t take sides.

(Mayor’s Office, February 2009)

“As Mayor of London, I deplore conflict and all acts of violence. I support a culture of global peace and understanding, including the restoration and promotion of peace in the Middle East. I would like to commend Children of Peace for their efforts in promoting peace and understanding between the children of Israel and Palestine.”

“As your organization has recognized, children are often overlooked victims of violent conflict, and too few efforts are focused on their particular needs. Generations of Israeli and Palestinian children have grown up with peace as an elusive dream. Supporting the Israeli-Palestinian peace process requires grassroots reconciliation through the mobilization of non-governmental organizations such as Children of Peace. I wish Children of Peace the best success in all of its endeavors as it continues to grow.”

“The Holy Father will remember your intentions in his prayers and he invokes upon you God’s blessings of joy and peace.”

“I am encouraged by Children of Peace in their commitment against anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. This organization is taking a step in the right direction by passing down inclusive values to the next generation.

I commend Children of Peace for their work in this area.”

“The UK’s longstanding position on the Middle East Peace Process is clear and has not changed: we support a negotiated settlement leading to a safe and secure Israel living alongside a viable and sovereign Palestinian state; based on 1967 borders with agreed land swaps, Jerusalem as the shared capital of both states, and a just, fair, agreed and realistic settlement for refugees.

The UK shares your commitment to helping build understanding between people on both sides of the conflict, including engaging in people-to-people work to bring together different communities. This includes promoting a more positive portrayal of one another to contribute to building the conditions needed for peace.”
