On November 5, 2016, The Middle East Interest Group (MEIG), of LIPW, hosted Dr. Robert and Mrs Rosita (Mike) Abel who introduced the audience to the vigorous organization, DelNATO (Delaware Neighbors Against the Occupation). Robert is a Jewish-American ophthalmologist and author, and has worked on medical missions in Palestine, Israel, and the Arab world. Mrs. Abel is a Palestinian-American who actively works for human rights and justice in and for Palestine/Israel.
DelNATO provides succinct news updates, action alerts, multiple public educational programs, and outreach to elected local, state and national leaders. Their website provides easy access to all of the above and is especially helpful in its brief educational statements on topics from boycotts, divestments, and sanctions through life under the occupation.
MEIG encourages each of you to follow DelNATO, especially as 2017 is the 50th anniversary of the Arab-Israeli 6-Day War. Simply go to http://www.delnato.org and click on “join us” in the header to become part of DelNATO’s listserv. Their email messages are not excessive in number and are stimulating, evocative, and insightful. It is an excellent resource for up-to-date information and public program ideas.
