This is a guest post by a supporter of Children of Peace
Although there was disagreement over the recent Co-Op petition on this thread, even a commenter who took issue with almost every other element felt s/he could sign up for this bit:
I call on the Co-Op to drop the boycott and instead to give positive support for practical development and bridge-building initiatives that could improve the economy, living standards and sense of well-being of both Israelis and Palestinians.
Children of Peace is a UK based charity which supports efforts to help Israeli and Palestinian children build positive relationships for a future generation, whose communities might live and work in peace, side-by-side. The charity attracts very varied supporters – many of whom would find each other’s views challenging – with a range of perspectives on this and other issues.
