Resources for Further Information

By Deanna Womack

After only one day back in the states, it's difficult to become re-adjusted to my normal life. I cannot stop thinking about our experience in Palestine and Israel. One good thing about being back is that we now have access to a whole wealth of information online, and we can continue to be well-informed about the situation. With that in mind, I have put together a list of resources, including online news sites, websites for organizations working for peace and reconciliation, and books for further reading.
