In yesterday's piece about the occupied territories and the land, I should of course have mentioned the vital Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine-Israel, which I was privileged to have some links with through my last job. The Middle East Forum of the Churches' Commission on Mission is the body within Churches Together in Britain and Ireland which has helped widen the base of support for EAPPI in these islands. Anyway, the encouraging news is that, for the first time, a Muslim woman from South Africa has joined the programme as part of the latest batch of mainly Christian workers to go out for a minimum of three months. The picture shows Huwara checkpoint near Nablus, by the way.
