Friends of Sabeel
Working For Peace for the People of Palestine and Israel.
Sabeel works for a just peace for the people of Palestine and Israel. Started by Palestinian Christians, Sabeel promotes non-violence and reconciliation. Friends of Sabeel UK is working in Britain to support that vision.
Justice and peace in the Middle East will only happen with the cooperation of all the faith communities in the region. Sabeel, a grassroots ecumenical liberation theology organisation based in Jerusalem, encourages this cooperation. Its work involves:
- Exploring the meaning of the Gospel in the Palestinian situation.
- Supporting the Palestinian Christian community.
- Working for a more accurate international awareness of the suffering of the Palestinian people.
The word Sabeel is Arabic. It means ‘the way.’ It can also mean a spring or channel of living water.
