Friends of the Earth

This is Friends of the Earth Intertnational:

We are the world’s largest grassroots environmental network. We campaign on today’s most urgent environmental and social issues.

This is Friends of the Earth Middle East:

Friends of the Earth Middle East (FoEME) is a unique organization that brings together Jordanian, Palestinian, and Israeli environmentalists. Our primary objective is the promotion of cooperative efforts to protect our shared environmental heritage. In so doing, we seek to advance both sustainable regional development and the creation of necessary conditions for lasting peace in our region. FoEME has offices in Amman, Bethlehem, and Tel-Aviv. FoEME is a member of Friends of the Earth International, the largest grassroots environmental organization in the world.

It campaigns for things like a Jordan River Peace Park.

There is an organisation called Friends of the Earth Middle East (Eco Peace) England that signed the Final Declaration of the Beirut Resistance Forum, which brought together revolutionary socialist and jihadist groups. Here is some of what they signed up to:

Restoring UN Resolution 3379 which classifies Zionism as racism, and ousting Israel from the UN

What relationship does “Friends of the Earth Middle East (Eco Peace) England” have to FoEME?

Does anybody fancy finding out?


There is no Friends of the Earth Middle East Eco Peace (England). FOEME were impersonated by anti-Zionists:

“Dear Ms. Vogel,

Thank you for your email and for wanting to clear up this matter with us directly. We highly appreciate that.

Our organization is “EcoPeace / Friends of the Earth Middle East” and our website is We are indeed a regional organization of Israeli, Jordanian and Palestinian environmentalists working towards protection of our shared environmental heritage. And we are indeed promoting a Jordan River Peace park.

We are NOT however, “Friends of the Earth Middle East (Eco Peace) England”. We do not know who they are, and they are using our name, illegally, I might add. Notice that there is no web link to that organization in the “Harry’s Place” site. No wonder…

And of course we do NOT support the ‘Final Declaration of the Beirut Resistance Forum’, or any such document related to its message.

We are happy to be linked to your Greens Engage blogroll, and do hope that you keep us on. We certainly have similar views.

I hope I have cleared up this unfortunate misuse of our name, and again, I thank you for writing to us directly.
