As the world watches, the Israeli and Palestinian conflict continues to occupy the news. Hardly a day goes by without news of bombings or retaliation. Despite the occupation, bloodshed, and destruction, voices calling for moderation and peace continue to surface. Some Israeli soldiers recently refused to serve in the occupied territories, and Israeli citizens took food to Palestinians. In another case Israeli and Palestinian children attended a summer camp together. The children went away with new views and appreciation for each other. The children said they would not forget their new friends and suggested this type of event would go a long way to healing the wounds of conflict.

Because of your interest in this region, your group has been asked to research the issues and make recommendations that will bring peace.
