Our partners at the Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns provides an excellent resource for anyone or any group that wants to be updated on the situation in the Middle East, analysis of the the events taking place in the region, and more. The latest edition of “Middle East Notes” (found as a PDF here [ http://maryknollogc.org/sites/default/files/article/attachment/MIddle_East_Notes_070314_0.pdf ]) focuses primarily on the murders of the three Israeli teenagers, the two-week search for them, Israeli accusations of Hamas and Hamas’ denial of responsibility for the abduction and murder. Also provided is analysis and implications of the Presbyterian Church (USA) vote to divest from three companies that it says supply Israel with equipment used in the occupation of Palestinian territory; proposed force feeding of Palestinians; the growth of European governments’ boycott of the settlements; and other issues.
