JUNE 18, 2008 – One of our readers contacted us the other day and asked why is it that we write very little about the positive dialogue that is currently happening between Israeli and Palestinian-based not-for-profit organisations.
It was a valid question and it has certainly made us think about writing a series of reports on the subject. But to respond to our reader: Yes, there are quite a few viable dialogue-based organisations. Unfortunately, the great majority of them are not based in Israel, which could be due to tax implications when it comes to raising donations for their respective organisation.
Nevertheless, our reader’s point is well taken and we intend to go ahead to look at what is positively happening within the Israeli and Palestinian communities, and from time-to-time we will write about them. The first report will commence later this week
