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).

"Resist with Prayer" 

 
Pictured here: The 15th day of Ramadan marked the lunar anniversary of the 1994 massacre in Al-Ibrahimi Mosque, in which 29 Palestinians were killed by a Jewish settler while they were praying inside. On this 24th anniversary, our local partner, Dismantle the Ghetto, organized a public action in memory and resistance, calling for large numbers of people to gather at the mosque to pray. All wearing black t-shirts that read, "Resist with Prayer," the participants were denied access through the checkpoint while Israeli Occupying Forces (IOF) threatened to fire tear gas and use other excessive force. The response of the demonstrators was to pray together outside the checkpoint, declaring to the IOF that they did not wish for there to be violence.

Secret Search

 
Pictured here: An Israeli soldier stands guard as other members of his patrol take a young Palestinian man around the corner to be searched out of sight of foreign monitors. The man was stopped, ID checked, and body searched as he was walking through the tunnels of the Old City. The Israeli military conducts these patrols several times a day in an attempt to exercise their control of the freedom and movement of Palestinians. They often detain and arrest members of the community in addition to ID checks and searches.

Prayers for Peacemakers. 7 June 2017

Prayers for Peacemakers. 7 June 2017

More and more people are becoming aware of the consequences of the industrialization of our world. The pollution of the air, soil and water resources has increased notably because of the so called development. Extremely dry seasons, prolonged cold winters, numerous floods and landslides are just some examples of the impact of the massive industrial production, global scale transportation and abuse of natural resources. For this reason, the country representatives signed an agreement to continue working for and supporting the development while decreasing the pollution and the global warming. But we need to understand that it's the consumption and production of things that we perceive we need that takes away or destroys what we all truly need: healthy and sufficient food and water, clean air and respect for life.   

Let us pray for our world, for clean air and water. Let us pray for those who struggle to protect what is left and to regenerate what is lost. Let us pray for those who make decisions that will impact not only our present but also our future and the future of the life on Earth. Let us pray for each one of us to learn more, to care more, and to do more. We all deserve a better planet and many of us bear responsibility for the disasters that take place not only where we live but also in other parts of the world. So help us God.

Psalm 96:10-13

Say among the nations, "The LORD reigns." The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity. Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy; they will sing before the LORD, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his truth.
