Robert Opp e-mails to highlight an organisation called Oasis of Peace (Neve Shalom in Hebrew, Wahat al-Salam in Arabic). Based between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, it was set up by a Dominican monk, Bruno Hussar, to promote peace and understanding between Jews and Palestinians.

I've not encountered the organisation personally but having spent a lot of time in Israel and the West Bank last year any group that's working for peace in the Middle East is worthy of attention -- plus, I trust Robert's judgement.

Robert urges you to read more about the campaign for Malak Taiser, a five year old girl who suffered severe burns in an accident at her home near Ramallah.
