The Truth & Reconciliation Commission for the Middle East was launched in Israel and Palestine in August 2008, where meetings were held with leading thinkers, academics, mystics, theologians, refugees, etc. to discuss their views on how to solve the crisis in relations between Israel and Palestine (and indirectly the Middle East in general), the focus being primarily on the philosophical, spiritual, intellectual and theological dimensions of the challenges of peacemaking in the Middle Eastern context, in a long term and holistic perspective. A longer video about the TRCME can be viewed at under Human Rights and Peace along with one of the full-length interviews filmed at the launch of the TRCME in Israel and Palestine in 2008 of Dr. Geries Khoury of the Al-Liqua Centre for Religious Studies and Heritage in Bethlehem, West Bank . (The full documentary on the Commission will be ready in the latter half of 2009)
