Report from the Executive Director
John Erickson

Last November many of us from FOSNA joined others from around the world at the Notre Dame Center of East Jerusalem, in sight of the beautiful Old City. We discussed the use of the Bible in the occupation of Palestine and aspects of international law, and we made excursions to Bedouin villages in the Negev, Bethlehem and Hebron. We also celebrated 25 years of Sabeel, with a visit to a baptism site on the Jordan River and a gala dinner at the International Hotel in Jericho. We were saddened to hear Sabeel founder Naim Ateek announce his retirement, but he later assured international Friends of Sabeel leaders that he will remain as titular head and spokesperson as he retires from administrative duties. It was at the Jerusalem conference that FOSNA leaders agreed to prioritize the issue of Israel’s policy of breaking the younger generation of Palestinians. Numerous reports and agencies have highlighted Israel’s systematic abuse of Palestinian children, but our mainstream media and government ignore the issue. FOSNA will be working with the Tree of Life Foundation to hold a series of conferences in the fall of 2014 highlighting this threat to Palestinian children and also planning a multifaceted advocacy campaign to address the issue. On the home front, the FOSNA Board of Trustees is embarking on a six month long strategic planning process. We want to investigate and articulate what FOSNA does (and can do) best and build an internal structure and programs to make FOSNA as focused and effective as possible. As we proceed we will be looking to many of you for your wisdom and guidance. Finally, I would like to announce FOSNA’s first scholarship award of the year. We are happy to assist Leandra Lambert, who will be traveling to Palestine/Israel with the Women’s Witness Trip this spring. Leandra is a young student at Harvard Divinity School and we welcome her into the FOSNA family. We believe that supporting witness trips for young people, pastors and others new to the issue is extremely important. Thanks for your support in 2013 and please consider an increased or additional gift for our scholarship fund and advocacy campaign on behalf of children this winter. Your thoughts and comments are always welcome. You can reach me at john.erickson@fosna.org.

Looking Ahead: FOSNA in 2014
By Donald Wagner, Program Director

The poster above with the now familiar quote from Nelson Mandela announces to the world that 2014 is the “United Nations Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.” However, for those of us who work for justice in Palestine, there are ample reasons to be concerned that the forces that support military occupation and “normalizing the conflict” could have their way in 2014. Clearly Israel, the United States and many of the Arab nations would be content with this state of affairs, hoping to contain the conflict to the territories, where Palestinians have suffered 47 years of humiliation and oppression. Having recently visited several grass roots organizations in the villages and towns throughout the West Bank, I come back challenged by the enormity of our task and inspired by the steadfastness of the Palestinian people, young and old, and the growing number of international movements committed to justice in Palestine. We in FOSNA are dedicated to doing our part, and, in fact, redoubling our efforts in 2014. Our five program committees have had a year of working together, and we are excited to share some of the programs that, with your help, we hope to implement in the coming months. 1. CONFERENCES AND WITNESS TRIPS: Conferences and trips are among our primary educational and recruiting vehicles, and this year we will have five or more conferences and several seminars. Conferences will bring you up-todate on the occupation and the growing world-wide resistance movement. Among the speakers appearing at one or more conferences will be Rev. Dr. Naim Ateek, Rev. Graylan Scott Hagler, author and activist Omar Barghouti, author Max Blumenthal, Israeli historian Ilan Pappé, political analysts Josh Ruebner and Phyllis Bennis, Jewish Voice for Peace strategist Cecilie Suraski, Middle East journalist Rami Khouri, authors Brian McLaren and Mark Braverman, Norwegian physician Dr. Mads Gilbert (who served in Gaza during “Operation Cast Lead” and later), and many others. Check the FOSNA website (fosna.org) for full programs and registration details. Our witness trips are perhaps the best form of education available as we make sure you meet the people (the “living stones”), witness the effects of the occupation, and visit historic sites. One of our trips—led by Prof. Joy Lapp, a FOSNA board member, and Rev. Arnie Voigt —will take place from June 2 to 16. Another, titled “Abraham’s Children in Contemporary Israel and Palestine,” will run from June 14 to 28. (This trip will feature communities and leaders in the six religions of the Holy Land: Can you name all six?) Still another trip, the Partners in Mission Work Group trip, will be led by FOSNA advisory board member Dorothy Jean Weaver May 2-19. Information on all of these trips can be found at fosna.org. 2. THEOLOGY: FOSNA is charged with the task of presenting Palestinian liberation theology, the theology of Sabeel. For over a year the Theology Committee has been working on a project that will come to fruition in August, with the publication of a book titled Zionism and the Quest for Justice in the Holy Land. A forerunner to this book, a new study guide, has already appeared. It is titled Zionism Unsettled and was written and produced by our partners in the Israel Palestine Mission Network of the Presbyterian Church (USA). These are outstanding resources and contain cutting-edge, critical studies of political Zionism and various forms of Christian Zionism. See page 4 for information on how to order the study guide. PLEASE CONSIDER STARTING A STUDY GROUP IN YOUR AREA THIS SPRING. 3. MEDIA: The FOSNA Media Committee has been working on several media monitoring projects, including reviews of

the New York Times and the Washington Post, with plans for other publications. The group will also be involved

with a project to support a letters-to-the-editor campaign. The committee produced a new and updated FOSNA brochure that can be ordered in quantity from our Portland office. Committee members also provided material for the new FOSNA website and continue to work with our IT committee on this major effort. 4. ADVOCACY: The boycott of the Israeli product SodaStream, which is manufactured in a factory built on land stolen from Palestinians, continues to be a focus of the FOSNA Advocacy Committee. FOSNA and several regional groups and partner organizations are involved in various activities around the Super Bowl on February 2nd. SodaStream recently named the actress Scarlet Johanssen as their official spokesperson and various appeals are now being made to the actress by FOSNA and others to withdraw her name or for the humanitarian organization Oxfam to drop her as a spokesperson. The SodaStream boycott effort has been picking up in Europe and the United States with the company’s stock dropping by over 20 percent in recent months. Executive Director John Erickson and I have written to 14 businesses that feature SodaStream, requesting that they drop the product. With the help of our partner organizations, we intend to keep the pressure on throughout 2014. Finally, we will be calling upon Pope Francis to insist that Israel stop the systematic abuse of abuse and detention of Palestinian children and to end the decades of occupation of Palestine’s West Bank and the occupation and cruel blockade of Gaza in which so many children have suffered and have been killed. The campaign will be an international effort between early February and the papal visit to the Holy Land, scheduled for May 2014. 5. LOCAL GROUPS: This committee has been equally busy, creating and supporting local working groups that carry out the FOSNA mission in their cities and regions. The committee has completed a “tool kit” with practical ideas and organizing strategies for education and advocacy. Anyone interested in started a FOSNA group should contact the committee chair, Joy Lapp (lappj@earthlink.net). The committee has developed a Google group that will enable regional groups to share successful programs, problems and successes. The Board of Trustees is preparing a new long range plan for FOSNA. It will lay out our hopes for FOSNA over the next three to five years. An important verse in scripture reminds us “where there is no vision the people will perish.” We want to be a force with an ambitious and

psalm 72: transformation
let the lowly rise up, let them crash and collide like tectonic plates, let them burst forth leaving soaring mountains in their wake. let the oppressed, buried deep within the earth smolder and shape like pressurized carbon gliding inevitably upwards only to emerge like diamonds in the morning sun. let the justice that trickled first from shallow creeks now roar through the valley and saturate the dry parched earth, let it flow relentlessly throughout the land where life once grew and will grow again. let those who cry out in pain feel your presence growing within their broken souls like green stems shooting through cracked pavement, let them live to see new life spreading through abandoned streets and neighborhoods and cities and nations. let the promise of your transformation beckon still that we might finally take the first tentative step into this new day, yes let it be so. by Rabbi Brant Rosen
achievable vision for peace with justice in Palestine and Israel. May God grant us wisdom, courage, and strength to stay the course, as the Palestinians say, with “sumud” (steadfastness).

Zionism Unsettled: A Congregational Study
New Critical Study of Zionism and Christian Zionism Now Available
In 2012, the Israel/Palestine Mission Network of the Presbyterian Church (USA) (theIPMN.org) established a working group to explore the history, doctrine, and various forms of Zionism. Around the same time, FOSNA invited IPMN to collaborate in developing for publication a collection of essays on Jewish and Christian Zionism. The resulting book,

Zionism and the Quest for Justice in the Holy Land, edited by Donald E. Wagner and Walter T. Davis, is scheduled
for publication by Wipf and Stock in 2014. The book contains a foreword by Walter Brueggemann and essays by Mustafa Abu Sway, Naim Ateek, Gary Burge, Carole Monica Burnett, Pauline Coffman, Walt Davis, Brant Rosen, Rosemary and Herman Reuther, and Donald Wagner.

Zionism Unsettled is a congregational study guide that may be used alone or in
conjunction with the longer book. This congregational study guide consists of two parts: this booklet and its accompanying free DVD. These companion resources follow the general chapter outline of Zionism and the Quest for Justice in the Holy

Land while introducing additional material that highlights issues of particular interest. Each section in this study guide is followed by a set of questions to help stimulate productive group discussion. Ordering Information for Zionism Unsettled: Online: theIPMN.org Phone: 800-524-2612. Also available from FOSNA. The book, Zionism and the Quest for Justice in the Holy Land will be available for purchase online at wipfandstock.com/pickwick_publications, (541-344-1528) or from Amazon.com/books.

Tweet for Justice
A Message from your FOSNA Advocacy Committee

In FOSNA’s weekly email, we put out a plea for Internet users to learn to Tweet. Sounds silly, doesn’t it? It’s not. It’s big business. Twitter reaches millions of users daily. A Tweet is a short message of up to 140 characters. Some of us in FOSNA and other justice organizations are “teaming up” to Tweet before, during, and after the Super Bowl on February 2. Why? Because SodaStream has purchased another ad for the game, and millions will see it. We can’t match those millions, but we can Tweet to the millions of fans who will be looking up Super Bowl information on Twitter. We can let them know that the SodaStream factory is built on ground stolen from Palestinian farmers, villagers, and other ordinary people—yet because of their ethnicity, they are not permitted to live in the settlement built on land that is legally theirs (yes, theirs). That’s apartheid, and it’s brutally enforced by armed settlers and the Israeli army. The SodaStream factory is located in one such illegal settlement. We plan to educate as many football fans and players as possible about the occupation, about injustice, and about the boycott of products made in the illegal settlements. Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) worked in South Africa. It will work in Israel/Palestine, too.

Book Review by Gregory Jenks http://gregoryjenks.com/2013/12/17/reflections-from-palestine/

Reflections from Palestine
By Samia Nasir Khoury Samia Nasir Khoury celebrated her eightieth birthday on Sunday, 24 November 2013. This was also the final day of the Ninth International Sabeel Conference. Following a service at the Lutheran Church of the Ascension at Augusta Victoria on the Mount of Olives, the 200 delegates renewed our commitment to justice and peace at Qasr el Yahud, the Baptism site on the Jordan River before going to the Intercontinental Hotel in Jericho. There we were joined by an additional 200 Sabeel members for an afternoon of celebrations to mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of Palestinian Liberation Theology. As Samia noted in an email to friends shortly after the conference ended, never had she experienced so many people singing happy birthday to her. It was especially fitting that this book was available for purchase that afternoon as so much of the story goes to the heart of Sabeel's work in developing and practising Palestinian Liberation Theology. Together with her long time friends—Cedar Duaybis and Jean Zaru—Samia Khoury was one of the founders of Sabeel. These strong women of Palestine have played a leading role in the organization and their lives radiate with the virtue of summud, steadfast persistence. In the face of occupation and never-ending harassment, these women and their millions of anonymous Palestinian compatriots stand firm and refuse to oblige the Zionist dream by fleeing the land of their ancestors. This book is both easy to read and hard to read, all at the same time. It is a gentle book as one articulate and passionate woman tells the story of her family through decades of occupation and hardship. It is a confronting book as the unremitting evil of the occupation is parsed out in the details of everyday life under belligerent military rule. Yet this is a woman who has raised a family and cared for her grandchildren. I have met one of those grandchildren, and she is every bit as articulate and determined as Samia herself. In addition to her life as a wife, mother and grandmother, Samia has served as a founding Trustee of Birzeit University, a founder of Sabeel, and the President of the YWCA in East Jerusalem. Her personal circle of contacts around the world is a testament to her character and stamina, and this book had its genesis in a series of essays written for the magazine, Witness. I am glad that she wrote those essays and even more pleased that she agreed to edit them into this collection of reflections. Her personal integrity shines through these pages. I hope this book is widely read and, more importantly, that it inspires us all to do more to end the occupation that diminishes the humanity of the Jewish occupiers as much as it harms the Palestinians.

Welcoming our newest board members: Tarek, Joyce, and Sam
Our Board of Trustees consists of 15 exceptional volunteers who share a wealth of experience and knowledge and a depth of commitment to the mission of Sabeel. We would like to introduce you to our three newest members—Tarek, Joyce, and Sam. Trustees are hard-working members of internal and program committees. They oversee the daily function of FOSNA, ensuring that our core values and purposes are reflected in our programs and operation process. Other members of the Board of Trustees (listed with bios on our website) are: Bishop Edmond Browning, John Erickson, Dick Toll, Ann Hafften, George Khoury, Joy Lapp, Darrel Meyers, Catherine Nichols, Rosemary Ruether, Grace Said, Andrea Whitmore, and Wini Wolff.

Tarek Abuata grew up in Bethlehem, Palestine, and moved to the United States along with his
family at the age of 12, two years after the 1987 Palestinian uprising. After receiving his J.D. with a focus in international law from the University of Texas Law School in 2002, he spent a year in Palestine working with the Negotiations Support Unit, a group of advisers to the Palestinian Negotiations. Tarek has been involved in various nonviolence workshops, including trainings led by Dr. Bernard La Fayette, one of the leaders of the civil rights movement in the United States. Tarek serves as the Palestinian Support Coordinator for the Christian Peacemakers Team, and as the Director of Development for the United Palestinian Appeal. He spends his time between Palestine and Washington, DC.

Joyce Ibrahim was born in Jerusalem but grew up in Saudi Arabia. She was active as an
undergraduate student in several peace groups, including Students for Middle East Peace and the Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation. After college, she worked as a camp counselor for Seeds of Peace and was involved in nonviolence trainings with Love Thy Neighbor. Joyce has been working as a Private Sector Development Specialist with the World Bank since September 2008. She currently works on the Doing Business report, one of the World Bank’s flagship reports which assesses business regulations affecting domestic firms worldwide. Joyce earned a bachelor’s degree in international politics from Georgetown University and a master’s degree in international relations and economics from Johns Hopkins University – School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS).

Sam Jones is Associate Director of the Human Rights Program at The Carter Center in Atlanta, GA. In this capacity he manages the Program's efforts to educate and mobilize a range of U.S. leaders and constituencies in support of Palestinian rights. He also manages The Carter Center's programs in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Mr. Jones began his work in human rights as a Presbyterian Church (USA) peace / justice intern at Sabeel from 1999 2000, where he was responsible for field-based research, reporting, and international advocacy on a range of human rights issues. Mr. Jones earned his master's degree in international peace and conflict resolution from American University's School of International Service and his bachelor's degree in political science from the University of North Carolina at Asheville.

FOS-Albuquerque
Friends of Sabeel Albuquerque was born out of the very successful National Sabeel Conference held in our city in September 2012. The conference drew over 300 guests and speakers from across the country and world. Two of the organizers had become familiar with Sabeel during witness trips to Israel/Palestine.
(Photo: L to R: Peggy Wallace, Michelle Trumfio, Bernadette Garcia, Cindy Mustafa and Rita Erickson)

Some of Sabeel-ABQ meetings have been devoted to viewing videos of the conference presentations, since local volunteers had been too busy to attend sessions. The ABQ-Sabeel group collaborates closely with the newly formed Jewish Voice for Peace-ABQ. With support from Stop 30 Billion, the three groups put billboards around town that read, "Support Federal Funding for Albuquerque, Not Israel's Occupation of Palestine”. The accompanying graphic showed a Palestinian woman facing a pile of rubble as a bulldozer destroys her home. An illegal Israeli settlement can be seen on the horizon. Rita Erickson, a key member of the group organized a viewing of Stones Cry Out, a film by Yasmin Perni. The event attended by about 120 people was held at Immanuel Presbyterian Church, where the conference had been held. The room was filled with Christians, Muslims and Jews. Responses to the film revealed a singular sentiment that the primary problem facing Palestinians is Israel’s violation of their human rights. Future actions include responding to a pending resolution at the upcoming session of the legislature. The resolution commends and justifies the legitimacy of the state of Israel based on Biblical scripture. Our country is based on separation of church and state and we are determined to maintain that separation. Sabeel -ABQ continues to work with JVP-ABQ on a resolution to the city council, echoing the message on the billboards. We want our tax dollars spent at home, not for Israel’s occupation.

“Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.”
Greetings from the Development Committee of FOSNA. We are encouraged by your generosity of spirit in 2013 and ask you to consider ways you can make 2014 an even more successful year, as we continue our struggle for a just peace in Palestine-Israel and for sane, just U.S. policies that bear promise for all of the people in that land. If each of us makes a commitment to at least two of the suggestions below, we will be well on our way to strengthening and expanding our mission and ministry.

Or, invite them to consider a gift for interfaith clergy retreats in Palestine-Israel.

 Co-sponsor a FOSNA regional conference. Need help? Ask FOSNA staff for help in planning your presentation
and request for co-sponsorship or other financial support to your congregation or civic group. We are ready to assist you in widening the base of support for Sabeel’s people and programs.

Help a new pilgrim see the occupation for him or herself —and promote diversity in our movement. Make a gift to
the scholarship fund for a Sabeel witness trip or summer Youth Festival.

Discuss a planned gift with your financial advisor. Consider a gift from your IRA. Put FOSNA in your will. (We will
send you information on this, upon request. Your gift may be structured to provide income for Sabeel or FOSNA while providing tax advantages for your loved ones.)

Your pledge or gift now for our general fund will support the mission of Sabeel-Jerusalem, US conferences and
programs, scholarships, advocacy programs and the far-reaching work of FOSNA’s volunteer Board and Committees, and our hard working staff. Also, an additional gift this year for one special fund we highlight above will further expand and strengthen our mission.

THANK YOU! to our 2013 Circle of Friends

Thanks for a Good Year
FOSNA is on the move. Our Board has been strengthened. Our goals are being sharpened. Our staff is stronger. Our structure is being revised to reflect our mission more clearly. All this is possible because of the enthusiastic response of our FOSNA community and your generosity. Our work together is more important than ever. The churches are a vital part of the worldwide efforts to bring an end to the illegal occupation of Palestine and the oppression of the struggling Palestinians. FOSNA has become a major prophetic voice to the churches and in the churches, as knowledge of the occupation expands in the U.S. Your part of this effort is reflected in your responses to and support of our growing programs. We are very pleased that our friends and income have increased this past year allowing us to expand our work in several ways. 1200 of you made gifts of over $240,000 to support Sabeel-Jerusalem and the mission and ministry of Friends of Sabeel--North America. FOSNA is your organization. We are blessed by your local efforts and your splendid financial support. FOSNA on the move means that our opportunities for support are even greater in the coming year. Encouraged by your generosity and regional activity we have set an ambitious goal of $280,000 for our annual fund in 2014. We trust with your help we will experience a even better year ahead.

From the FOSNA Media Committee
Read about New York Times coverage of Palestine-Israel at my blog, www.TimesWarp.org. It comes out about twice a week. TimesWarp has exposed the Times’ failure to cover Israel’s abuse of child prisoners and its effort to whitewash the Prawer Plan, which would displace tens of thousands of Bedouin. You can follow TimesWarp by email, Twitter or Facebook. I would appreciate your help getting it out to non-activist readers of the Times. Many thanks! Barbara Erickson New Project coming soon: WRITE! Alert will promote and support letters-to-theeditor by sending out alerts to lists of contributors and supplying them with background material.

Marwan Barghouti: The Palestinian Mandela
Marwan Barghouti, known as the “Palestinian Mandela”, has been in an Israeli jail since 2002. The Ahmed Kathrada Foundation of South Africa and the Popular Campaign for the Release of Marwan Barghouti are partnering for Barghouti’s release. They gathered on Robben Island in October, where Nelson Mandela and Ahmed Kathrada both spent over two decades imprisoned for resistance to Apartheid to launch a new international campaign to Free Marwan Barghouti. “Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have experienced imprisonment at a certain point in their lives, in one of the most striking examples of mass detention in recent history,” Kathrada said. The gathering on Robben Island culminated in the appointment of a high-level international committee, which includes five Nobel Peace Prize Laureates. For more information:
