Sources for Information About Palestine

My Meeting House celebrated Christmas this past weekend with
a 24 hour Open House. Many spent the night and woke Sunday
morning for sunrise worship. One of the Friends, spoke to
the gathering about his recent trip to the Holy Land. He sent
the follwoing email this morning with a list of sources for
information concerning the conflict between Iszael
and Palestine.

At my talk last evening on my trip to Israel/Palestine, I spoke about
the wealth of infomation sources available, mostly on line. These
sources can fill in the gap of information in US main stream media,
which do not cover all sides of the conflict in Israel-Palestine very
well. This list is far from exhaustive, yet can itself be overwhelming.

For news coverage, I recommend the Palestine News Network,,
and the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs,
Read the others at your leisure, along with Jimmy Carter's latest
book--highly recommended.
