New Women's Coalition Advances Non-violent Solutions to Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Interview with Yael Martin, executive director of Promoting Enduring Peace and the Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace, produced by Melinda Tuhus

Yael Martin is executive director of the national peace organization, Promoting Enduring Peace, and just returned from three weeks in Israel, where she met with many different women's groups, both Israeli and Palestinian, who are working toward a peaceful resolution of the Israeli - Palestinian conflict. Martin lived in Israel for 20 years, returning to the U.S. in 1999. She is a member of Brit Tsedek v'Shalom, or the Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace, whose goal is to end the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory because, in their view it is detrimental to the interests of both Israelis and Palestinians.

Surveys show that only a small percentage of Israeli settlers living in the West Bank and Gaza are there for ideological reasons, while the majority reside there because of the economic incentives offered by the government. One of the ideas promoted by the Jewish Alliance is to pay settlers currently living in the occupied territories to relocate inside Israel's 1967 borders.

Yael Martin was a featured speaker at this year's Women's Studies Conference at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven, Conn. whose theme was "Women, War and Peace." In her talk, Martin announced that Women in Black and eight other less well-known women's groups have come together in the Coalition of Women for Peace to advance non-violent solutions in the Middle East. The following are exerpts from her talk recorded Oct. 18th by Between The Lines' Melinda Tuhus.
