Hello AFM and SAYMA discussion lists,   

Below is a Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) , (Atlanta Chapter) message that Friends might appreciate hearing about.  There is not much in the news about the peace movement in Israel.   Many peace proponents re being imprisoned and/or harassed for protesting against the war in Gaza.  Since the story linked is about someone who spoke about his work in Atlanta at the Oakhurst Baptist Church (down the road from the AFM) last December, it may be that some of you heard his talk.  The talk is on the U-Tube link below, for those who couldn't make that event and might now wish to hear what they had to say.  

Thank goodness for folks like the members of JVP who are speaking truth in their spiritual communities and especially for those in Israel who speak out about how war is not the answer.    Peace truly begins in our own lives and in our own families and communities.   



Dear JVP folks, 

some of you might remember that we hosted Maya Wind and Eran Efrati, refusnik and former Israeli soldier, in Atlanta last December. Thanks to Chris for passing the article along, Eran has been arrested (on Sunday). please see what he says. He is an amazing researcher and powerful testimony to his commitment for peace and justice. there is also the link to their talk at Oakhurst Baptist Church below as well. 



never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
