Zionism Unsettled: A Congregational Study Guide
Now available for color Kindle with accompanying video episodes online.
What role have Zionism and Christian Zionism played in shaping attitudes and driving historical developments in the Middle East and around the world? How do Christians, Jews, and Muslims understand the competing claims to the land of Palestine and Israel? What steps can be taken to bring peace, reconciliation, and justice to the homeland that Palestinians and Israelis share?
Zionism Unsettled embraces these critical issues fearlessly and with inspiring scope. The booklet and companion video episodes draw together compelling and diverse viewpoints from Jews, Muslims, and Christians in Israel, Palestine, the US, and around the globe. By contrasting mainstream perceptions with important alternative perspectives frequently ignored in the media, Zionism Unsettled is an invaluable guide to deeper understanding.
Released in January 2014 to immediate critical acclaim, Zionism Unsettled consists of a 74-page illustrated booklet with free companion video episodes online.
A how-to guide for class leaders and focused discussion prompts make it an ideal resource for multi-week exploratory education programs in churches, mosques, synagogues,… More...
Urgent Need for Medical Aid to Gaza
There is an urgent need for medical aid to Gaza. Israeli airstrikes over the past weeks have killed at least 1400 Palestinians and injured more than 5,000. [At least 45 Israeli soldiers have also died.] The ongoing Israeli-and-Egyptian-imposed blockade had already left Gaza short on 30% of its essential medications and 50% of its disposable medical supplies before the current hostilities even began.

IPMN Stands in Solidarity with Muslims in America
December 8, 2015 — The Israel/Palestine Mission Network is deeply alarmed by the rise of Islamophobic attacks and threats here in the United States. We condemn this behavior, along with all other forms of hatred, discrimination, and violence. And we stand in solidarity with our Muslim brothers and sisters now and always.
WOOSTER, Ohio, Nov. 30, 2015 — In response to a spate of negative reaction towards the resettling of Syrian refugees in the United States, the Westminster Presbyterian Church of Wooster, OH has opened its doors to refugees. In a letter sent to Secretary of State John Kerry, the Session of the church (its governing body) says that the congregation “sees itself as a sanctuary and hereby volunteers to welcome up to three refugee families from Syria or elsewhere to help them settle in our community.” The letter… More...

220th GA Passes Boycott
Presbyterian General Assembly Passes Boycott Motion
July 6, 2012 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Following last night’s vote by the plenary of the 220th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) on a motion to divest from three companies whose products are used in non-peaceful pursuits in the occupied Palestinian territories, the plenary has voted in favor of a separate resolution to boycott products made in Israeli settlements in the occupied territories, including Ahava Dead Sea beauty products and dates grown by Israeli cooperative Hadiklaim.
Although the plenary failed to pass the divestment motion, its approval of the boycott resolution sends a strong signal nonetheless that the Presbyterian Church (USA) supports those Palestinians who are using peaceful means to secure their freedom and human rights in the face of Israel’s 45-year-old military occupation and colonization of their lands. The Israel/Palestine Mission Network of the Presbyterian Church (USA) believes this is a positive step and hopes the church will continue to support Palestinians who are struggling nonviolently to achieve freedom and self-determination.
The razor thin margin of last night's vote on divestment, which was defeated by just two votes, demonstrates that the General Assembly remains divided on both divestment and investment, and has failed to provide a clear mandate on these issues. Sadly, it is the millions of Palestinians living under occupation who will pay the price for this lack of a moral directive.
