Israel

Israel was formed in 1948 and became a full member of the United Nations. Many people have questioned the legality of Israel’s existence since it was founded on land that was already occupied, through the forced exile of people from their homes. Palestine existed prior to the creation of Israel but has never attained full recognition or U.N. membership and has been under an illegal military occupation by Israel since 1967.

We oppose apartheid and our hope is the eventual unification of Israel and Palestine as one nation with one government representing all people. This we see as the first step in regional unification. In our view it is criminal to divide people based on ethnicity or to persecute people for their religious beliefs.
