Dear Friend, 

As RA's new Communications and Advocacy Manager, it is my pleasure to announce that the 4th #ICareAboutPeace Congressional Briefing, held on February 5th on Capitol Hill, was an absolute success! 

This year's briefing marked many firsts for Rebuilding Alliance. For the first time ever, the event was publicly sponsored by Senator Diane Feinstein. In addition, we were granted an extra hour of briefing time which we used to host a teleconference with human rights experts  Dr. Yasser Abu Jamei, Executive Director of the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme, Ms. Tania Hary, Exec Director of Gisha, and Architect Alon Cohen Lifshitz, of Bimkom: Planners for Planning Rights. They spoke about the situation faced by the people of Palestine and suggested tangible ways that Congress could intervene on behalf of Palestinians. 

Most importantly, Rebuilding Alliance was able, for the first time, to bring a teenager from Gaza City and her mother to speak about their experiences and what peace means to them before Congress in Washington D.C. Lama and her mother Amal were joined 16-year-old Aysar, 11-year old Ahmed, and Ahmed's mother Heyam from Susiya. These brave youth speakers and their mothers shared heart-wrenching stories about their life experiences and inspired our audience with their visions of peace. Children from Medina Montessori school also attended to present Congress with their Pinwheels for Peace. 

“I want Congress to keep my village safe and standing,” said Aysar, age 16, from the Palestinian Village of Susiya who has participated before.  Because Senator Feinstein took action, Susiya’s demolition orders were put on hold last year.  

This extraordinary event was attended by the staffers of nearly a dozen Congressional representatives, as well as constituents — and our Facebook Live broadcast, moderated by a wonderful team of English and Arabic speakers from We Are Not Numbers, received fantastic engagement.  Watch the link below to view an excerpt of 14-year-old Lama from Gaza City's speech.

Thanks to the hundreds of constituents who sent emails to invite their members of Congress, we're doing our best to arrange meetings with Senators and Representatives — and also looking forward to taking the children to see the sites. Soon, we'll begin our road trip, the #ICareAboutPeace speaking tour, all the way up to Boston. If you're in the DC area or on the East Coast and would like to host a house party or speaking event, or just want to join us for a visit to a museum or the zoo, please be in touch.

None of this would have been possible without your generous support. Your donation truly made a difference and on behalf of our delegation of speakers and Rebuilding Alliance, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

Sincerely, 

Katlyn Murray

Dear Friend,

If you've ever wondered what it is like to 'walk the halls of Congress', here is Sara's report of our June visit to keep the Palestinian Bedouin village of Khan Al Ahmar standing.  During our trip, we met with 29 offices in just 4 days' time.  Eid Jahalin, spokesperson for Khan al Ahmar, presented the village's own master zoning plan and that has made all the difference.  Just after our Washington DC visit, the village petitioned for approval of that plan — and the High Court agreed to reopen their case.  Their petition will be heard on August 1, 2018.

Our next step is to bring Palestinian children to present their Pinwheels for Peace to Congress, Sep. 23-29th, for International Peace Day.  Out of all our visits and briefings to Congress, bringing the children is by far the most effective advocacy to keep Palestinian villages standing.  This will be our 4th such briefing and we need your help to make it happen.

This Wednesday, GlobalGiving will be matching all donations to this project by 50%. 

Please give generously to support our work, and give early in the day.  The Bonus Day starts at 9am EDT and matching funds will go fast.

Sincerely,
Donna


From Sara, a new staff member at Rebuilding Alliance whose first day on the job was the day she joined us in Washington DC :

From June 25th-28, alongside Eid Jahalian and planners from the Israeli human rights group BIMKOM: Planners for Planning Rights, Rebuilding Alliance walked up the halls of Congress to assure a future for the Palestinian Bedouin village Khan al-Ahmar.  We were there because on May 24th, the High Court of Israel ordered that at any given moment Khan al-Ahmar could legally be demolished, without any viable alternative for its people. Our trip to Washington D.C took shape the moment Eid received his U.S. visa, just two days before his arrival.  We were there to ask the Senators and Congresspeople of the United States of America to intervene.

Before I begin telling the story of our time in D.C, let me tell you more about why we were there. You see, any structure in Area C (where Khan al-Ahmar exists) is vulnerable to receiving a demolition order if it does not have an approved masterplan. Yet, there is a catch; Israel's Civil Administration, a branch of Israel's Army, is not approving Palestinian master plans.

The villagers have sent in several plans to avoid these demolition orders, which all have been either ignored or rejected. And on February 7, 2018 the High Courts of Israel executed demolition orders for 17,000 Bedouin structures. Following, on May 24, 2018 the Courts announced that the village of Khan al-Ahmar may be effectively demolished any day after June 1, 2018.

Khan al-Ahmar is home to 191 villagers as well as the home of the famous Tire School. In addition to the families that will be forced to leave, there are also 175 children that travel from nearby villages to attend the Tire School in Khan al-Ahmar. The humble school was made with tires, compressed earth, and falafel oil (really!), and was built with the help of an Italian non-governmental organization. 

The idea of demoliting a village is unsettling in its own right. Yet, to demolish a village that provides education to so many young children is especially horrid. And although all the children will nevertheless experience the ramifications of losing their school, the young ladies of the village-communities will be most affected. In Bedouin culture, girls are not able to travel far from their families for any reason. Thus, once it was created, the Tire School was the first time these girls were able to get an education and they absolutely love it.

Before I go any further, I ought to introduce myself; my name is Sara Azmoudeh, I am Donna’s personal assistant and my first day on the job was actually our first day in D.C. Before joining Rebuilding Alliance I was a student at UCLA, finishing my undergraduate degree in Philosophy. A week before graduation I accepted the position with Donna and before I knew it I was on a plane headed to D.C to learn about the chaos surrounding Khan al-Ahmar. It was some mild ‘on the job training’ to say the absolute least. Yet, it nevertheless turned to be one of the best experiences I have ever had in my life.

The second we landed, I could feel the energy of our team pulling together. Eid, Donna, Nava, Donna, Alon, and myself were all ready to convey our message to congressional members and allow for them to understand the severe condition of Khan al-Ahmar.

Our meetings began with Donna introducing the team and then Eid Jahalin, the spokesman from the village, telling his story. Eid speaks some English, but because he is fluent in Arabic and Hebrew, Alon, who is also fluent in Hebrew, would translate his story. Following, Alon and Nava would pull out their maps to show Congressional Staff the logistics of the planning problem. And all throughout, Donna would articulate the seriousness of the matter.

It was extremely powerful to hear the story of Khan al-Ahmar be spokesman from the village itself. There were moments where my eyes would even fill with tears as I considered the devastating fate that Khan al-Ahmar could experience. Every once in a while I would lean back in my chair and feel ‘awed’ by the nature of our meetings. We would sit in rooms with Americans, Israelis, and Palestinians to discuss a very tangible peace; and what a beautiful thing that is.

On Monday, June 25 we met with exclusively Democrats from the House of Representatives. We met with staff from Representative Debbie Dingell’s office, Rep. Mark Pocan’s, and many more. The staff members were engaged, concerned, and willing to hear the story of Khan al-Ahmar unfold through eye-witnesses and experts on the matter. By just the second meeting our team was fluid and able to send the message that two calls from their office would really make a difference. 

On Tuesday, and Wednesday, we ran back and forth between Senate and the House of Representatives. One may assume that the two buildings would be fairly close to each other; yet, our team definitely got something along the lines of a cardio-workout jogging between the two. On this day, we also had the privilege of meeting with Republicans and were thrilled to get such positive feedback from them too.

In most cases, we were able to make the set of issues occuring in Khan al-Ahmar a non-partisan issue. And it was a really amazing thing to see how human beings are able to connect with each other on such a basic level. We all have families; we all come from somewhere, and having those values threatened was a concern to the staff members regardless of the nationality of these families.

Thursday, June 28th was our grand finale and the nature of our schedule proved that to be true. We were exclusively planned to meet in the Senate house on this day. Yet, we were not the only group fighting for a cause on this day.  The protesters from the Women's March fille the ground floor atrium of the Hart Senate building and as we watched, they were arrested to the applause of the supporters who lined the balconies.

Dear Friend,

Our first-ever Congressional Leadership Learning Mission was more incredible and fruitful than we could’ve imagined. For six days, Rebuilding Alliance led a delegation of seven Congressional staffers and concerned constituents throughout the West Bank and Israel, learning about the Occupation and gaining valuable firsthand perspectives and experiences. Our delegation included six Democrats and one Republican. Our trip also included eight constituents who came to accompany their Congressional offices. It was a great chance to build a network of influential partners on Capitol Hill and in each district, and give them the opportunity to see, feel, and hear for themselves why it is so important that our leaders must support Palestinian rights.

Most of the group got in late in the evening on Saturday, April 28, though some of us arrived in the wee hours of Sunday morning. We wasted no time and headed to the Ofer Israeli military prison complex at around 10am on Sunday, after lots of coffee and an engaging orientation by Gerard Horton and Salwa Duaibis, founders of the human rights organization Military Court Watch. We then met with parents in the waiting area and joined several hearings of boys arrested for allegedly throwing stones. The trial process can take months or even years while the children are held in detention. This would be one of the only times the parents could see their child. Court proceedings are in Hebrew with translation into Arabic so that the accused can hear what is being discussed. Remarkably, one of the judges was from New Jersey. The conviction rate in the Israeli military court system is 95%. Several members of our group thought this first visit to the military court to be the most impactful.

Following this, we ate a delicious lunch in Ein Karem and explored the Old City of Jerusalem, led by our fantastic tour guide, Itamar, who is part of the Green Olive Collective, our tour company.

The next day we toured the greater Jerusalem area, drove through the huge nearby Israeli settlement of Ma’ale Adumim and its elite suburb, Kfar Adumim, and then went to Khan al Ahmar, a Palestinian village for which Rebuilding Alliance advocates. There, we heard from Eid, the spokesperson for the village, as well as Rabbi Jeremy Milgrom who has worked with the village for a very long time,  and Ezra Korman who is an Israeli settler living in Kfar Adumim and is part of a settler group who supports Khan al Ahmar’s rights.

On Tuesday we met with the American Consulate in Jerusalem. This was the most disappointing activity of the whole trip for much of the group. While it was good to chat with consular staff, they talked a lot but didn’t say much, so to speak. Fortunately, we were able to spend some time later in the day with the very compelling mayor of Al Aqaba village, where Rebuilding Alliance built a kindergarten in 2008 and continues to support construction of homes, the library, and the kindergarten scholarship program. This place is a wonderful example of how a village can thrive when it is not demolished. Later in the afternoon, we swung by Jaba’ village to learn about an antiquities restoration project by RIWAQ. We were guided through ancient homes by architect Ranad Shqeirat, and then had a lovely dinner at Darna Restaurant in Ramallah where we were joined by special friends of Rebuilding Alliance and also the local Rotaract club (Rotaract is a Rotary membership program for young professionals).

Wednesday was another busy day. We visited Banksy’s Walled-Off Hotel in Bethlehem, and then toured the AIDA refugee camp in Bethlehem, led by UNRWA's Director of West Bank Operations, Scott Anderson. Bethlehem, of course, carries a lot of cultural significance for many religions, so some members of the group visited the Church of the Nativity. We then traveled to the village of Susiya for an incredible homemade lunch. Aysar, the young man who addressed Congress last September, took everyone on a wonderful tour to see all the birds he is raising!

Somewhere in the midst of all this, we spent an evening with Bassam Aramin and Rami Elhanan of the Parents Circle.  Both had lost their daughters, one murdered by a soldier's rubber bullet, the other killed by a suicide bomber.  Their lives were never the same. We were all deeply moved by their stories and their profound friendship with each other. 

We spent the following morning at the UNRWA headquarters, listening to speakers from Gaza tell us about their organizations. We heard from Dr. Yasser Abu-Jamei of Gaza Community Mental Health Programme, Anas Jenna from We Are Not Numbers, and UNRWA Gaza Operations Director Matthias Schmale. Then, the most amazing surprise: the door opened and in walked Tarneem Hammad, also from We Are Not Numbers, and Mrs. Najah Ayash from the Women’s Project Center in Rafah. Their permits to leave Gaza and travel to Jerusalem had been approved the day before! This was Tarneem's first trip out of Gaza. They shared their stories with us over a delicious vegan lunch, and then everyone parted ways for the afternoon. They visited Jerusalem before returning home to Gaza in time to satisfy the requirements of their day-long permit. 

Friday, we toured Hebron. This was a difficult experience for several people, as Hebron is a hotbed of Israeli settlement. There are frequent clashes in the city and the tension in the air was palpable. Though we were fortunate to not encounter any violence, the experience was unsettling. To decompress, we spent the rest of the afternoon in Jaffa – swimming in the Mediterranean and smoking hookah with the locals. The group gathered for one last delicious dinner together before the staffers headed off to the airport and Rebuilding Alliance's team went to Ramallah for a few days, with Donna, our Exec. Director, heading off to Gaza.

Since the trip, we’ve maintained great working relationships with the staffers that joined us. They have all said how impactful their experience was; one even called it "a life-changing experience." They are motivated to promote Palestinian human rights at the US government level and all are already working with us to open doors and strategize about how to bring Congress around on this issue. We're planning our next Congressional Leadership Learning Mission for August 9-15th! Click the the link below to ask your members of Congress to join the trip. If you yourself would like to come along, there's another link where you can apply.

This trip was my first to the region, and I truly can't imagine a more impactful experience. It was really meaningful to see for myself the place that I have been advocating for over the past several years. I'm so glad I was able to participate in this trip before I head off to graduate school at the University of Chicago in the fall - it left a lasting mark on me and I know that no matter where I go, I'll continue my activism to the best of my ability. That said, this will probably be the last report from me! Thank you all for your support of our work and for giving me the opportunity to work with you.

Peace,

Tamsin

Dear Friend,

We have exciting news to share and a crisis to respond to.

First, the good news: Rebuilding Alliance will soon be hosting a "Leadership Learning Mission" to Jerusalem, the West Bank, and, if possible, Gaza! Six senior Congressional staffers and constituents from their districts are joining us to see what we see.  We will bring them to meet with residents of the Palestinian villages of Khan Al Ahmar, Al Aqaba, and Susiya, visit important historical sites, and meet with UN officials, human rights organizations, and lawyers who represent Palestinian communities at risk of demolition by the Israeli Army. 

Our agenda includes a day trip to Gaza and we are working with the UN to apply for entry. The Israeli Government may grant us entry but if not, we are applying for Gazans to receive permits to come out to meet with us. Plan C is to set up a conference call. Overall, this will be a learning and growing experience for everyone, one that will hopefully result in Congressional Representatives becoming stronger advocates for human rights, justice, and peace. 

We are still welcoming applications for constituents to join and I invite you to join us! This will be a remarkable journey. If you would like to come with us, please fill out the form linked below. The tour will cost $2500, including hotel, food, local permits, and local transportation. You must arrange and pay for your own flight.

Now the hard news:  

You may be following the news about what is going on in Gaza. Soon, US funding for humanitarian relief in Gaza is expected to run out. Widespread starvation is anticipated, along with the closure of schools. This past week, thousands of demonstrators in Gaza participated in the nonviolent March of Return and were greeted with extreme force by the Israeli Army – eighteen people were killed and according to the Palestinian Hospital Association, 1400 were wounded, with some 700 receiving gunshot wounds.

Soon, Rebuilding Alliance will send out an action alert asking constituents to email their members of Congress to ask for them to join a conference call series that we will soon launch with guest speakers on the line from Gaza, and also including the Constituents who are sending the emails. We will use the calls to urge members of Congress to restore US humanitarian funding, and we’ll urge them to call the Israeli Embassy to press for safety instead of deadly force. We’ll urge an opening of the blockade in response to the recent World Bank report published on 3/15/18 entitled, “A Sustainable Recovery in Gaza Is Not Foreseen Without Trade.” (copy below).

Donna Baranski-Walker, Rebuilding Alliance’s Executive Director was recently in Gaza where she met with the UNRWA Gaza Director of Operations, Matthias Schmale.  He said,

“President Trump’s decision to freeze approximately US$ 300 million earmarked for the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) means that basic services such as primary education for some 500,000 students - of whom over 270,000 are in Gaza - and healthcare for millions of Palestine refugees across the Middle East are put at high risk. In Gaza, UNRWA food aid to some 1 million vulnerable Gaza residents might soon run out due to lack of funding.”

UNRWA-Gaza Director Matthias Schmale asked us to do all we can to help — and so Rebuilding Alliance is launching our Urgent Action alert with UNRWA will be providing a safe venue for Gazans to join our conference calls with Congress as speakers -- and we added the visit to Gaza to our agenda for the Congressional Leadership Leaning Mission too.

Thank you again for your continued support. Your help makes these bold steps possible!  Please do take action when you receive our Action Alert and I look forward to your joining our conference calls when we schedule with your Senators and Representative.

Sincerely,

Tamsin

Dear Friend,

What an intense time this has been! Our big news is that both a Senator and a Representative are agreeing to sponsor our third annual #ICareAboutPeace briefings, bringing Palestinian children to speak to Congress and share their vision of peace! This year, if all goes well, we’ll bring a child from Gaza to join the young man returning to Congress from Susiya, as well as a child from Al Aqaba, both villages in the West Bank’s Area C.  

Additionally, two distinguished human rights defenders will join the delegation: Rabbi Arik Ascherman, a key advocate who has worked with Susiya for many years as part of their negotiation team, and the Mayor of Al Aqaba, Haj Sami Sadeq, under whose leadership the village has flourished to become a model of peace.

Bringing the children to speak to Congress is one of the most impactful forms of advocacy that Rebuilding Alliance has ever done. Congressional intervention is very effective in keeping Palestinian villages standing - Senator Feinstein even quoted the children in her letters (published on her website — see the link below) with PM Netanyahu, urging that Susiya not be demolished. The delegation will emphasize the right of Palestinians to plan and build their communities, and live safely and without fear on the land they own. Our special guests from Gaza will ask for Congressional engagement to mitigate the ongoing electricity crisis and lift the blockade.

Aysar, age 15, from Susiya, says, “This will be my third visit to Congress, coming at a critical time for my village of Susiya. On October 1st, Israel’s Minister of Defense is scheduled to issue the State’s decision to the High Court regarding the fate of our village. I hope many members of Congress will join Senator Feinstein to press to keep our village safe and standing.”

Rebuilding Alliance’s Peacemaker Awards:

Last April, it was an honor to hold our Annual Peacemakers Dinner, recognizing five people and organizations that have been instrumental in the advocacy that resulted in Google adding 236 Palestinian villages (previously omitted) to their maps of the West Bank. Here are the awardees:

  • Rep. Eshoo received our Peacemaker Award at our Race of Recognition dinner for the role she played in the addition of 236 Palestinian villages to Google Maps. Rep. Eshoo presented a beautiful and moving keynote address during which she said that “we are all called to be peacemakers,” and this is why she ran for office.

  • George Zeidan, one of the founders of Right to Movement, joined us to receive his Peacemaker Award. At our request, George and eight other Right to Movement runners ran from Google headquarters to Apple headquarters in October, 2016 to press the companies to put Palestinian villages on Google Maps and Apple Maps. 

Receiving their awards in abstentia:

  • Eid Suleiman Hthaleen, an artist from the Palestinian West Bank village of Umm al Kheir, for his art (see video) and his advocacy to keep Umm al Kheir standing.
  • the Geospatial Information Systems Department at the Palestine Ministry of Local Governments, in recognition of their persistence in accurately and meticulously mapping the West Bank as it exists in reality - with hundreds of Palestinian communities that deserve visibility and respect.
  • Bimkom: Planners for Planning Rights, an Israeli human rights organization that uses zoning and architecture to help prevent demolition of Palestinian communities. 

Thank you for your support! We will update you very soon as plans come together for our I Care About Peace Briefing in Washington during the week of International Peace Day.

Sincerely,

Tamsin Avra
