MCC in Palestine and Israel


As a Palestinian, I know full well that the people of Israel are not freer than we are. Both Israelis and Palestinians live in fear. Neither Israelis nor Palestinians have peace. Both Israelis and Palestinians yearn for security. Others cannot give us freedom, peace, and security. No government, no army, no wall no matter how long and high will provide for us what can only be supplied by the cultivation of mutuality and trust.”

—Jean Zaru
