TRANSCOFLICT: Religion in mediation – a different perspective?. Dispute resolution is a tricky business. How can mediators draw on religion, which is key to many communities, in training negotiators?

Those who do not employ intellect and knowledge are the ones who practice Islam the pagan way no different than the ancient Babylonian style of worship, religious traditions and rituals. Totally unlike the pagan Wahhabi religion of Saudi Arabia, and its criminal DAESH-ISIS}

“Practical Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse”

This newsletter provides what is missing in the US mainstream media and what the American public needs to learn about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. We hope you never fail to make the connection between APPAF’s reported articles and the cause and effect of the Palestinian problem and the vicious Israeli occupation as its illegitimate heinous perpetrator

It follows the Admonitions of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson:
“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people” – John Adams – Second US President
“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” Thomas Jefferson

We also invite you to visit website, and send us your feedback.

Please don’t forget that Palestine is as much of an American problem as it is a Palestinian and an Israeli problem.
