Middle-East Peace Bus Ad

The Salaam-Shalom group of our congregation, with the full support of the Session, launched a bus ad campaign on August 13, 2012. This local effort, designed to run in the entire fleet of 98 buses in Chapel Hill and Carrboro for a year, is part of the "Join With Us" and "Be on our Side" national ad campaign coordinated by the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation. We've taken this step because we are convinced that US military aid is a barrier to peace in the Middle East. US military aid is subsidizing the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land. As such, we are complicit in egregious human rights violations. We have purchased these ads with the hope that they will be a catalyst for reflection, conversation, and action. Join With Us!
