Other Groups

There are a wide range of groups in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. While we believe the agendas of those listed below are oriented principally towards peace and human rights, IJV cannot vouch for the credentials of each and every group or take any responsibility for their activities or pronouncements.

Where the groups are joint Israeli/Palestinian, they are listed under both headings (but not necessarily under the same name).

We aspire to keep the list up to date, therefore we will be happy to update the list with new relevant organisations as they emerge. If you have any new details that you would like us to add, or any comments or suggestions, please send us an email at
