PERSPECTIVES
 
This section provides a wide range of views, not necessarily all reflective of the UMHLTF's positions, but most are those that cannot be heard in the US electronic or print media.

A diverse selection:
From a long-time veteran of Israeli military and government service and peace activism in Israel, Uri Avnery, to an eminent Christian editor and journalist, James Wall, as well as accounts of US visitors' personal experiences in Palestine, messages from the United Methodist Liaison to Israel and Palestine and more.... many informative perspectives here, so keep exploring.
