“The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.”

Proverbs 18:17

Justice, fairness and religious tradition teach us that when there is more than one side to a contentious issue, that both sides be allowed into the discussion. Later this year, the Presbyterian Church in the US (PCUSA) will be meeting to decide a great many issues related to the conflict in the Middle East. The Israel/Palestine Mission Network of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the church’s Middle East Study Committee and other groups will be laying out their positions over the next several months.  At this site, we present an alternative viewpoint.

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

John 8:32

Those engaging in discussions, debate and decisions regarding the decades-long Arab-Israeli conflict should be wary of anyone claiming ownership of absolute truth. This site does not claim to do so. Rather, we have gathered multiple voices to provide you material for careful and (one hopes) challenging study. For in this instance, it will be the search for truth that has the power to truly set you free.
