Just Peace Radio 6 24 2013

Just Peace
Mondays, 6pm - 7pm EST ----- WRFG-Atlanta 89.3 FM
Special Premiums for our 2013 Summer Fund Drive....tomorrow on Just Peace!!! A CSA and Summer Youth Camp opportunities (see below) 

This week on Just Peace, we will talk with Ilise Cohen and other members of Interfaith Peace-Builders (IPB) about their most recent delegation trip to Palestine and Israel.  The delegation returned from the Middle East this past Tuesday, June 18th.
Interfaith Peace-Builders sends delegations to Israel/Palestine so that residents of North American can see the conflict with their own eyes. Participants have the opportunity to learn directly from Israeli and Palestinian nonviolent peace/human-rights activists, to spend time in Palestinian and Israeli homes, and to experience the situation of Palestinians living under military occupation. The delegations focus on seeing, listening to, and recording the experiences and perspectives of a wide range of Palestinians and Israelis.

The conflict is not just "over there." It influences United States' foreign and domestic policy, the federal budget and budget priorities, and affects many communities in the US with ties to the Middle East. The US government gives Israel billions of dollars annually, defines its relationship with Israel as 'special' and, at the same time, envisions itself an active peace-broker in the region. As a result, US citizens have a responsibility to understand the conflict and to push our government to implement a acceptable and just policy.
We are so pleased to tell you that we will be offering all of you special premiums in this, our2013 Summer Fund Drive. The Truly Living Well Center for Natural Urban Agriculture is offering:
(1) for $100 (or more) a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) valued at $250 for 13 weeks...and
(2) for $100 (or more) for participation in the 2013 Youth Summer Camp valued at $375.
Donations can also be made on line at or by calling the studio at 404 523 8989.  We thank you in advance for your support.

Thanks everyone,
