Das Kalenderblatt im Juli 2017

An dieser Stelle präsentieren wir zu jedem Monatsanfang ein neues Kalenderblatt aus dem diAk-Kalender für das Jahr 2017 (erschienen als Ausgabe IV/2016) – mit vielen Photos und Geschichten zu den Personen und Projekten hinter der Initiative Combatants for Peace. Das Kalenderblatt im Juni erzählt von Ahmad, ein ehemaliges Mitglied der lokalen Hamas-Bewegung und Rettungssanitäter, der trotz schmerzvollen Erfahrungen und Verlusten bis heute daran glaubt, daß ein Dialog mit den Israelis der einzige Weg ist, die Besatzung zu beenden und in Frieden zu leben.

American Palestinian Women’s Association: Standing with Our Jewish Sisters

Standing with Our Jewish Sisters Against Anti-Semitism, Bigotry and Hate

Like other Americans of conscience, we are alarmed by the recent rise of unfiltered offensive rhetoric against fellow Americans that is threatening our core American values and the safety of our children.

In the wake of the recent xenophobic wave that has been articulated and observed during and after the US presidential election, many of our Jewish sisters are legitimately anxious and worried about the recent rise in anti-Semitism. While Americans of Palestinian and Arab decent are Semites too, our community is concerned about the Jewish directed anti-Semitic rhetoric.

Our shared Semitic roots and values compel us to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our Jewish sisters to protect the dignity of our children and defend their right to live free of fear, anxiety, and stress. To that end, APWA denounces and rejects all forms and expressions of anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, Afrophobia, xenophobia, homophobia, misogyny, racism, and bigotry.

If you agree with the spirit of this statement, please download the attached APWA flier. Please feel free to share and post the flier on your community bulletins.
