The International Institute of Peace Studies and Global Philosophy is proposing a 19 Point Peace Plan for Gaza and Palestine and Israel, which has arisen out of the ongoing tragedy of the conflict between Israel and Palestine, especially Gaza, and the need to solve this situation once and for all, to the benefit of everyone involved.

Gaza: Time to take sides

The news out of Gaza has been horrendous, overwhelming, tragic, heart-breaking. Death upon death. Destruction after destruction. Loss of life; losses for families, communities, the human race. It is easy to feel rage and horror, depression and defeat. Will the violence ever end?

Although the outlook for peace and reconciliation may seem at a discouraging low, there are also some hope-inspiring stories that should not be ignored and buried in these deadly times:

  • In Gaza,…

Gaza: A Fundamentalist's Guide to Gravity

Gaza: A fundamentalist’s guide to Gravity

By: Firouzeh Afsharnia

A few years ago I was traveling through Africa and found my self in a rickety cab. As I bounced up and down in the lumpy back seat, shifting spots to avoid the broken springs and whatever was festering in the exposed paddings, another passenger got in and sat in the front seat.  He was in a jovial mood and had just passed some sort of certification exam.  “I passed!
