Seeing for Myself: Gaza

Dear Friends:

Over the past few years the Middle East Peace Education Project has presented several public forums about the conflict in Israel and Palestine. However we’ve not had an opportunity to present clearly on the impact of the Israeli war on Gaza (Dec. ’08 – Jan. ’09) because of the very limited access allowed by Israel into Gaza.

Susan Johnson, a Quaker from Philadelphia traveled to Gaza in May ’09 as part of a UN Reliefs and Works Agency (UNRWA) delegation.
