AND THE GRANTS GO TO…
“It’s extraordinary how many people mistakenly believe that you can end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by directing hatred at one side or the other.”Richard Martin
Summer 2017 and the Middle East is beset with rumours and conflict issues. The political tectonic plates continue to shift as alliances form or fall, positions change and where the only constant is uncertainty.
The Gulf Cooperation Council continues its tense stand-off with Iran. Other Arab Nations deep boycott Qatar over ‘terrorist links’ whilst invited Turkish troops enter the Kingdom. Saudi Arabia holds ‘secret’ talks with Israel in readiness for a full-on trade deal. Syria continues to suffer, Libya falls into anarchy and Iraqi forces are locked in a deadly battle with Daesh.
Against this background the Israeli-Palestinian impasse continues. Numerous initiatives to resolve the conflict come and go. The Trump determination to bring peace to Israelis and Palestinians has fallen at the first hurdle. Rumours of private shouting matches, accusations and counter arguments has led the US administration to walk away from a conflict President Trump was planning to solve just months before.
There is no easy answer to decades of mistrust, violence and revenge. For us, it’s about the children and their communities too easily forgotten after decades of conflict.
If you look after the children, the future will look after itself.
We have much to be proud of and thank you for your continued support.
