Jim Clune: Olive Harvest Peace Delegation to Palestine


Seeking Peace Through Nonviolence

The ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict was the subject of a talk by Jim Clune in St. James Church's Owens Hall in Johnson City, NY on Friday, January 14th, 2011. Jim, a longtime peace activist and member of St James' Peace and Justice Committee which hosted this event, recently returned from Israel and Palestine where he traveled with a delegation of Interfaith Peace Builders. Delegation members met with activists of both peoples working to promote human rights and dignity and justice. Jim said upon returning that "While two weeks is only enough time to get an inkling of what people deal with every day, it is up to us to do reality checks on what are the causes of the conflict and what our contribution to solutions might be."
