Friends on Israel and the West Bank

Published: July 3, 2020


In a joint statement issued July 1, 2020, the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL), the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), and the Quaker Peace & Social Witness of Britain Yearly Meeting (QPSW) said:

“As organizations that are part of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) we are deeply concerned about the threatened Israeli annexation of parts of the West Bank. Such an action would violate international law, formalize land theft, further entrench inequalities and the denial of Palestinian rights, intensify human suffering, and make realizing a just and lasting peace more difficult.”
