WHO WE ARE

Operation Protective Edge.
WWP is the largest grassroots movement in Israel whose purpose is to promote
a political agreement to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Today the

GOALS AND STRATEGIES
The movement has 2 main goals:
To promote a political agreement as a strategic solution to the Israeli – Palestinian conflict
The aim of the movement is to bring about the resolution of the Israeli Palestinian
conflict by means of an honorable, non-violent and mutually acceptable agreement. We know that conflicts end with an agreement and we know that this is possible with the Israeli- Palestinian conflict as well.
To include women in all aspects of decision making as mandated by UN
Resolution 1325 – This resolution recognizes the fact that women are a key to promoting
sustainable peace processes and ending violent conflict; therefore it is obligatory
to include women in all aspects of decision making especially regarding issues of
peace and security

women from diverse communities within Israeli society: right, center and left;
religious and secular; Jews, Arabs, Druze and Bedouin; young women and older
women; women from the center of the country and from the periphery. The
movement does not support any one particular solution to the conflict.
