About the Palestine Israel Ecumenical Forum (PIEF)
The "Palestine Israel Ecumenical Forum" (PIEF), established in 2007, is an instrument to “catalyze and coordinate new and existing church advocacy for peace, aimed at ending the illegal occupation in accordance with UN resolutions, and demonstrate its commitment to inter-religious action for peace and justice that serves all the peoples of the region.”
The scope of the PIEF is worldwide because the crisis in the Middle East and its solutions are increasingly global in scope.
The PIEF works towards increasing solidarity between and among churches committed to peace and justice for communities living under occupation. Its inter-faith dimension invites people of other religions in the Middle East and elsewhere to join the search and struggle for a just and comprehensive peace.
The core actions of PIEF will address:
Actions challenging government support for the occupation
Actions challenging public support for the occupation
Actions challenging theological and biblical justifications for the occupation and
Actions maintaining viable the Palestinian Christian presence in the Holy Land.
