Palestine Projects

About CPT Palestine

CPT Palestine is a faith-based organization that supports Palestinian-led, nonviolent, grassroots resistance to the Israeli occupation and the unjust structures that uphold it.  By collaborating with local Palestinian and Israeli peacemakers and educating people in our home communities, we help create a space for justice and peace.

We maintain a project in the southern West Bank city of Hebron (Al-Khalil in Arabic).

Prayers for Peacemakers November 23, 2016

Pray for all the Palestinians who have had to harvest their olives near settlements this season and have had to face harassment and violence from settlers and restrictions from the Israeli military.

 In days to come the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established as the highest of the mountains, 
and shall be raised above the hills; all the nations shall stream to it.


Many peoples shall come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
 to the house of the God of Jacob; 
that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths." 
For out of Zion shall go forth instruction,
 and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.


He shall judge between the nations, and shall arbitrate for many peoples; 
they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
 and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, 
neither shall they learn war any more. Isaiah 2:2-4

"Kill all the Arabs" - she said

Education Under Occupation
Part 2: Responsibilities of the Occupying Power

In particular, we focus on the realization of the right to education that every child, in times of peace or conflict, must be able to exercise and enjoy. Read more

Avoiding The Line of Fire  

Pictured here: Everyday Palestinians are exposed to countless soldiers in full combat gear, which brings distress and fear especially for children. The mere exposure to weapons is an act of violence in itself. In their lifetime, the only Israelis most Palestinian children see have guns.

Soldier: "This is my land"

Pictured here: Israeli soldiers told a Palestinian family, who had just finished harvesting their olives and were enjoying a picnic after the work day, that they should have asked for permission to harvest on their own land. The soldier told a CPTer, when questioned about their uninvited and armed presence, that "this is my land and this is my gun."
