From Ron Taylor
It may not sound like a local issue but what happens in the Middle East affects everyone. I have just returned from The West Bank of Palestine where I was a volunteer with the International Middle East Media Centre.
One weekend I visited the village of At-Tuwani which is on the very southern edge of the West Bank.I went at the invitation of a member of the Christian Peacemaker Team which has a full-time presence there. Their purpose is to protect the villagers (farmers and shepherds ) who are under constant threat of attack from Jewish settlers who live in the nearby illegal settlement of Ma'on.
Thankfully people in the village have resisted in a non-violent way, but they need support and I want to start a campaign to raise money to help them.
If anyone wants to know more about the situation there and/or would be interested in helping me, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
