We have 14 days to raise $24,000. 

The Common Historical Narrative speaks quite specifically about WWII, and participation in the region by other countries, in particular the British and the Americans. The work goes back 150 years, and has been approved by historians Moshe Ma'oz, Professor Emeritus of Middle Eastern Studies at Hebrew University in Jerusalem and by Dr. Philip Mattar, President of the Palestinian American Research Center in Washington D.C. and former executive director of the Institute for Palestine Studies.

Thanks for participating, and for letting people know about our project! It may seem daunting, it may even seem impossible, but it has seemed impossible that these two opposing points of view could find a common historical road map, and that has been achieved! What's $24,000 to that?

Very encouraging news.  Seems a totally sensible project as each side needs to learn a lot more about the other, and their shared suffering.  (We could argue that the British and all countries who persecuted the Jews during WWII were much of the cause of this.....)  Nancy, can you let us know how much you're looking to raise.  I think does so well at rallying people because they're very, very specific about how much they need to raise or how many people to participate.....

We have 20 more days to make our goal to raise the funds to translate and distribute the Common Historical Narrative for Israel and Palestine! The time is ripe for this. The time is now. Please chip in and pass it on to your networks
