Netanyahu’s anti-peace rhetoric and actions going all the way back to the early 1990, his pro-settlement policies, on-going siege on Gaza and two assaults on the Strip causing the deaths of thousands and destruction of 90,000 homes, racist campaigning and targeting black African immigrants if taken all together makes the invite to address CAP the most egregious step to be undertaken by a “progressive” institution.
That’s why I signed a petition to Neera Tanden, President of Center for American Progress, which says:
“We call on the leadership of the Center for American Progress to disinvite Netanyahu and stand-up for universal justice and principled anti-racism discourses . “Progressive” and Netanyahu don’t belong on the same stage or share the same event. Giving a stage to a racist and an anti-progressive politician like Netanyahu undermines CAP’s mission and standing in the country. We call on the Neera Tanden and CAP’s leadership to stand-up to AIPAC and its right wing allies and not cave-in by extending an invite to Netanyahu. ”

Volunteer Opportunity description
The aim of this international volunteer project is to bring together people of different cultures to work toward a common goal and promote peace, tolerance and understanding. The volunteers’ main task will be renovating ancient sites near the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem which marks the site of Christ’s birthplace.
The project takes place at Christmas time, and the volunteers will assist the Bethlehem municipality to prepare for the festive season. The group will help with painting, distributing flyers to tourists, and putting up decoration to beautify the city. The volunteers will also have the opportunity to celebrate Christmas with the Palestinian people.
The project also provides intercultural learning experience with a focus on Palestinian culture. The participants will visit refugee camps in Bethlehem, will tour places of interest, will attend lectures, meet local politicians, and most importantly, spend time with and get to know local people.
Project dates: December 22, 2015 – January 1, 2016
Share the spirit of Christmas and spread some holiday cheer while lending a helping hand on one of our charitable projects around the globe.
