The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is an ongoing tragedy that continues to cost lives and tear families apart, leaving communities in desperate need of a peace solution.
Not only is the conflict impacting heavily on the lives of both Israelis and Palestinians, but also Jewish and Muslim communities outside the region.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is much more complicated than often portrayed and/or understood. With so much misinformation, antisemitism and anti-Muslim hatred globally, it’s also often weaponised and used to push people apart.
However, within the conflict itself, there is also hope. There are incredible stories of people coming together across divides, stories of co-existence, reconciliation, hope, community and of working together.
Here at Voice of Salam, we believe that these stories need to be heard.
We also believe in actively challenging antisemitism and anti-Muslim hate in all their forms, showing examples of and encouraging Jewish-Muslim engagement. With this comes the importance of sharing such stories of engagement and bringing more nuanced perspectives of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to the public sphere.
As part of our work in Jewish-Muslim relations, our website also includes specialised language sections of the website in Arabic and Hebrew [forthcoming] to enable us to reach as many people as possible.
Join us in spreading a little peace and understanding!
