We began to develop a Peace Council for UPF with Committees on topics that inspire Ambassadors for Peace to cooperate together.

  • Birmingham Peace Council efforts
  • AFP Peace Council Meetings in UPF HQ

Two important events in the year are

  • The Annual General Meeting currently for FFWPU at which UPF activities are reported
  • The Annual Seasonal Gathering in December to review the year and make plans for the following year.

During 2006 there were six visits to Israel – Palestine with the Middle East Peace Initiative (MEPI). I have not included the reports.

  • There are reports of two Jewish-Muslim Dialogue events in Jerusalem including UK representatives.
  • There are related MEPI activities in the UK:
  • (Israeli) Yair Dalal together with Egyptian, Palestinian and Saudi Arabian musicians concert raising £1000 for Bereaved Family Forum
