Tree of Life Educational Fund and its partners are working together to encourage Congressional support for H.R. 2407 – Promoting Human Rights by Ending Israeli Military Detention of Palestinian Children Act. This bill was introduced in 2019 by Congresswoman Betty McCullom, a followup to her H.R.4391 bill last year.
“The Palestine problem is not just a problem for the 13 million Palestinian natives (2/3rd refugees or displaced people) but it is a global issue demanding a global solution like happened in South Africa. That is why we really appreciate the amazing work done by TOL to shed light on this issue and get action towards justice and human rights. From Palestine we salute and welcome you. ”
“TOL is an amazing story. It’s the only place that puts together Christians, Jews and Muslims. At the same time they can join together the story of the Indigenous Bedouins of the Negev and the native Americans all together in the great country of the USA… If TOL didn’t exist someone had to invent it. It’s necessary. It’s genius. I love the idea and concept”
“We can be a gate in a place that has known so many walls. We will be a voice for those who think that no one listens and no one cares. We will do all that we can to restore justice and decency and integrity to our human institutions. We will live and work and dream for that day when the streets of Jerusalem shall be filled with boys and girls, Jews and Christians and Muslims playing in the street, no longer divided, no longer afraid.”
