Christians for Fair Witness on the Middle East Offers a Lenten Prayer for Peace in the Holy Land
We pray that the Lord God will bring a deep healing and reconciliation to the people of the Holy Land — Palestinians and Israelis, who, in spite of different histories, languages, religions and cultures, share the common pain of years of violence and strife as they yearn to breathe free in their own homelands.
We pray that the Lord God will also bring wisdom and courage to the leadership of these two people. A wisdom and courage that will enable them to make the compromises necessary to end the occupation and create two states living side by side with justice and safety for both Palestinians and Israelis.

Christians for Fair Witness on the Middle East Issues a Plea for the Peace of Jerusalem
Christians for Fair Witness on the Middle East (“Fair Witness”) is deeply concerned about the recent outbreaks of violence in Jerusalem. East Jerusalem Palestinians have been attacking Jews, Jewish homes, the light rail system and even kindergartens with rocks, slabs of concrete and molotov cocktails. Last week an infant was killed when an East Jerusalem resident rammed his car into a crowd of Israeli commuters. The death toll in that attack rose to two this past Sunday when a twenty two year old woman died after being critically wounded in that same attack.
Christians for Fair Witness on The American Churches and the Role of Fear in the Israeli/Palestinian Conflict
Sixty three years after the founding of the State of Israel, forty four years after the beginning of the Israeli occupation, and eighteen years after the start of the hope-filled years of the Oslo Accords, Palestinians and Israelis find themselves still unable to come to a negotiated agreement. Locked in an on-going conflict which regularly spills into violence and bloodshed, we are led to ask, what is it that is keeping the Palestinians and Israelis from finding their way to a peaceful solution?
