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...

PCUSA Fails to Pass Divestment Motion
Presbyterian Church (USA) Fails to Pass Divestment Motion
July 5, 2012 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Israel/Palestine Mission Network of the Presbyterian Church (USA) is disappointed to announce that today the plenary session of the 220th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) failed to support a motion to divest church holdings from three companies (Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard, and Motorola Solutions) that profit from non-peaceful pursuits in the occupied Palestinian territories. While voting against divestment, the plenary did approve a resolution to boycott products made in Israeli settlements in the occupied territories, including Ahava Dead Sea beauty products.
“It appears that church commissioners were swayed by a fear that divestment would cause irreparable harm to Jewish-Christian relations,” said Rev. Katherine Cunningham, IPMN Vice-Moderator. “In reality, the divestment motion was supported by a broad alliance of Jews, Christians, and others who believe that nonviolent means such as divestment are an effective way to pressure the Israeli government into abiding by international law and respecting Palestinian human rights.”
In failing to pass the motion, church commissioners disregarded many years of diligent work by the Committee on Mission Responsibility Through Investment (MRTI), which recommended divestment after making repeated, fruitless attempts at constructive engagement with the companies in question, as well as an overwhelming vote in support of divestment earlier this week by the General Assembly’s Committee on Middle East and Peacemaking Issues.
Despite today's outcome, the Israel/Palestine Mission Network of the Presbyterian Church (USA) will continue its efforts to alleviate the suffering of Palestinians and to help bring peace and justice to Israelis and Palestinians alike.

IPMN Advocacy Chair
