Jewish, Arab groups launch joint internship


A Jewish-American and an Arab-American group are launching a joint intern program.

Students will divide their internship between Americans for Peace Now and the American Task Force for Palestine.

“Many Americans often assume that Arab Americans and Jewish Americans are at opposing ends of advocacy initiatives that seek to influence U.S. policy,” Rafi Dajani, executive director of the American Task Force for Palestine, said in a joint statement with Americans for Peace Now. “The truth is that there are silent majorities in both communities who share a vision of Israel and Palestine living at peace. Partners for Peace will give young people a chance to mobilize these majorities.”
