This website is so excellent for background information –what could happen at an airport for a person visiting Israel, although most Americans without a Palestinian or Arab background would not be subject to this kind of interrogation.

Mondolweiss has a powerful article about the BDS and the way Uri Horesh, a lecturer in Arabic at Northwestern University in Evanston, ILL. responds to this boycott personally.
I personally know that the Palestinians encourage anyone to support the boycott even though it might deprive them of some jobs they’ve had to support their families. To check into the Israeli boycott, just google those two words.
Each Monday night of Advent this year, Project Peace will host a book discussion on John Dear’s very popular book: The Nonviolent Life. This book is perfect for our preparation for Christmas when we celebrate the peace-filled person Emmanuel–God with us.
In reading the book myself, I felt that this book must be shared with the greater public. I will order 15 books from Amazon for about $10.00/book. They will be used but in very good condition. Please call 419.447.0435 ext. 136 to be a part of the group.
Blessings. sr. Paulette
The truce between Israel and Hamas will hopefully lift the siege of Gaza. We want to be sure that this is the message that goes out to the people in the surrounding area of Tiffin; so we are having another action at the corner on the old courthouse square on Friday August 8 from 4:00 pm. until 5:00 with signs to that effect. Please join us if you are able. sr. Paulette
