WHAT YOU CAN DO
Palestinians need a state of their own. There are many practical
ways you can help persuade the Israeli Government of this.

[image, unknown] Write to the Israeli embassy in your country. Israel's dependence on foreign aid makes it sensitive to international opinion.

[image, unknown] Boycott Israeli goods like citrus fruit, other food and drink, clothing and machinery.

[image, unknown] Support agencies working for peace in the region. Some addresses are given below.

[image, unknown] Join action groups and pressure your own Government to encourage meetings between the PLO and Israel.

[image, unknown] Jewish and Palestinian readers have a special role by working towards a solution together.

[image, unknown] Don't go on holiday to Israel unless as part of a fact-finding mission to find out how Palestinians and Israelis live. Some organizations arrange meetings with local people.
