Solutions not sides

9th November 2023

The website ‘Solutions not Sides’ has resources for helping to discuss the current Israel/Palestine conflict as well as others. We thought this would be helpful for our learners and tutors.

From their page:

The SNS team is watching events in Israel and Palestine with deep concern for our speakers and partners in the region.

The violence is against SNS’ principles. These are our fellow human beings who are suffering missile attacks, bombings, and unimaginable horrors. Celebrating the appalling desecration of human life on either side is abhorrent. Stop and think before you post, like or share. 

  1. NO TO THE CELEBRATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST HUMAN BEINGS
  2. NO TO THE PROMOTION OF HATRED TOWARDS HUMAN BEINGS
  3. NO TO CALLS FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF PALESTINE OR ISRAEL – THIS IS THE HOMELAND OF BOTH NATIONS

It’s vital that learning and discussion around this painful and complex issue are not shut down at times like this.

Remember, British Jews and British Muslims are not responsible for what is happening in the Middle East, and they may be personally affected by the situation. The same goes for Palestinians and Israelis living in the UK. They all need our understanding and support at this time. They are all someone’s loved one and they deserve dignity, peace and justice.
