WATER FOR GAZA SCHOOL CHILDREN

GAZA is a strip of land about 25 miles long on the southwest border of Israel. It is home for 1.7 million people most of whom are refugees that fled there after being driven from their Palestinian homes beginning in 1948. It is one of the most densely populated areas of the world. It is also a prison. There is literally no escape from Gaza. In 2008, five crossing points from Israel in and out of GAZA were closed. This occupied territory is surrounded by concrete wall, electric fence and concertina wire guarded by the Israeli Military. It is blockaded on the Mediterranean.

Water in Gaza comes from a coastal aquifer. Because of the refugee overpopulation it has been over-pumped and is now infused with salt as the Mediterranean Sea has crept in making the water unfit for human consumption. Gazans now spend an average of one quarter of family income on water supplied by Israel.Click here to Read More

PROMISED LAND MUSEUM

On Friday, March 18, from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. a reception and exhibition at the National Press Club, Washington, D.C. was held to mark the grand opening of the online museum PromisedLandMuseum.org: The Jewish Museum of the Palestinian Experience. Dr. Steve Feldman will be welcoming press and other visitors at the exhibit in the Winners Room of the National Press Club.

A project of the Coalition for Peace with Justice, the museum complements the common understanding of the founding of Israel with first hand resources describing how Palestinian families came to be expelled from their homes and villages.

The Jewish Museum of the Palestinian Experience takes what had been two narratives—separate Israeli and Palestinian narratives—to help people see one consistent story of how a state run by Jews was formed in a land where non-Jewish people were the majority.Click here to Read More
