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...

Holding the IDF accountable for human rights violations
IPMN Response to the congressional letter on adherance to the Leahy Law
April 8, 2016 — IPMN, The Israel Palestine Mission Network of the Presbyterian Church (USA), stands with Congressional Representatives* calling for an investigation into human rights violations by Israeli and Egyptian military forces.
“We are encouraged by the recent congressional concerns regarding human rights violations by Israeli and Egyptian military forces.” said Rev. Dr. Jeff DeYoe, moderator of IPMN. “We applaud the effort, led by Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) and Senator Patrick Leahy (D –VT) and the Democratic members of Congress who have asked Sec. of State John Kerry to investigate disturbing reports of human rights violations by both these countries.”
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...
Kairos Palestine is the "Letter from a Birmingham Jail" of our time. This Confession of Faith, written in 2009 by a broad spectrum of Palestinian Christian leaders, is addressed to Palestinians, Israelis, the international community--as well as all the churches of the world. It lifts up the classical theological virtues of faith, hope, and love that lie at the heart of the Christian Gospel, and affirms that resistance to injustice and oppression is firmly grounded in these principles. It is both an anguished cry in a dark hour and a profound testament to unquenchable hope.
The study plan includes informative background material on the Israel-Palestine conflict including three maps in color. This material provides essential historical, political, and theological context for the Kairos Palestine statement. The booklet is an excellent guide for readers undertaking an individual study of the document. Church-based groups will benefit from the detailed lesson plans for a three-week congregational study, inclulding a list of thought-provoking questions to stimulate reflection and discussion.
