Ann Arbor, MI MM – 2011

We believe that one key step towards stability and safety for both Israelis and Palestinians depends on a just agreement regarding the Palestinian lands that Israel has occupied, illegally, according to international law, since 1967.

We urge Friends worldwide to unite with Britain Yearly Meeting in its call to boycott products made in Israeli settlements “not as punishment or revenge, but as an external pressure to achieve change…”

In order to exert more than symbolic pressure on the Israeli government to negotiate a just peace at this critical time, Ann Arbor Friends Meeting joins with religious and civil society organizations throughout the world in a boycott of corporations that support the Israeli military.
