Join a prayer vigil

A prayer vigil sponsored by the ACT Palestine Forum and devoted to peace in the Middle East is held on the 24th of every month.  Please join the vigil.  Click here to find out if others near you are already participating or to start up a group. 

An overarching goal of the ACT Palestine Forum is to contribute to a global discourse on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We call the global Christian communities and Churches to engage and to act to help ending the occupation. APF encourages positive actions from the global Christian communities to influence decision-makers and prompt actions that contribute to end Israeli occupation and all its violations of International Law. We call for the application of the relevant international resolutions concerning the Palestinian cause on all parties involved. We call for the principle of having a state for all its citizens, based on respect of religion, equality, justice, freedom and respect for pluralism.

APF’s choice in the face of the occupation is to resist it, for the good of the enemy and for our own good. Our resistance will remain: creative non-violent resistance, such as advocacy, popular resistance, perseverance, and economic boycott of all the occupation products, and all peaceful ways of pressure on the Israeli leaders so that they enter the ways of peace and justice.

“We believe in a good and just God and that his goodness will triumph over the evil of hatred and death that persist in our land. Only then will we see in Jerusalem “a new earth” and a “new human being” capable of loving all his/her brothers and sisters in this land.” – Kairos Palestine
