The Coalition for Responsible Peace in the Middle East believes that peace can only be achieved when all parties take responsibility to prevent terror and to enforce the rule of law. We also believe that the anti-Israel resolutions proliferating throughout mainline churches world-wide are roadblocks to peace. These resolutions single out Israel for taking defensive measures against terrorist attacks without calling on the Palestinians to cease terrorist attacks against Israel. Furthermore, these resolutions ignore a critical roadblock to peace in the Middle East, i.e., persecution of Christians under Muslim rule. Peace and persecution cannot coexist.
Therefore, the Coalition for Responsible Peace in the Middle East is committed to educating the public, the media, and elected officials about the discrimination, intimidation, forced conversion, and violence that Christians face throughout the Middle East, especially under the Palestinian Authority.
The Coalition for Responsible Peace in the Middle East is comprised of organizations that seek balance and fairness in Middle East. The coalition is currently in its formation stage. The following groups are the founding members.
