East for Peace


East for Peace
   A Middle Eastern-based peace association organized by a group of intellectuals after Israel's first War in Lebanon (1982), in part to counter the hardline image of Jews from Arab countries. This group believed that peace is essential for Israel and that Oriental Jews should play a role in the effort to achieve it.
