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, December 23, 2015

Pray for the people of Hebron, living under foreign military occupation, just as Mary and Joseph did two millennia ago. Give thanks for the Holy Child whose tenderness was mightier than the Roman Empire.  Pray for an end to empires and the coming of the Reign of God.

 light has shined. Isaiah 9:2

Big Shoes 

This child often greets CPTers near the Qitoun/209 checkpoint. Though his shoes are a little too big, his smile fits him perfectly.

Taken Away

At the Qitoun checkpoint, CPTers witnessed Israeli Border Police arresting a girl.  CPTers approached the scene too late to ask the girl her name and Israeli Border Police would not give information about the arrest. A subsequent report by a local activist identified her as Diana Ismail Rajabi and said the soldiers accused her of having a knife. As of this publication, she has not been released.

 Note:  This lectionary reading is from the First Sunday in Advent.  We offer these images, and these words without comment and with prayer.

The days are surely coming, says the LORD, when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah.
In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David; and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.
In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will live in safety. And this is the name by which it will be called: "The LORD is our righteousness."  Jeremiah 33: 14-16

Illegal Arrests 

Soldiers arrested two brothers, ages 10 and 11,  from their home, allegedly for stone-throwing. Under Israeli Military law, no child under the age of 12 can be arrested. Additionally, when taken behind the gate at Bab-il-Balediyya, the Israeli military did not allow their father to accompany them, further violating their rights and protections as children. The 11-year-old was released within a half hour. The ten-year-old was taken away in a military jeep.
