ICPR seeks peace with justice for the Palestinian people and calls for the fulfillment of their human rights in accordance with international law and UN resolutions, including the inalienable right of refugees to return to their homes. 

January Meeting: Thursday 1/12

Happy 2017. Boycott Israel! 

ICPR wishes its friends and supporters a happy new year. Yesterday's House vote in favor of Resolution 11, "Objecting to UNSC Resolution 2334 as an obstacle to Israeli-Palestinian peace, and for other purposes" is a strong reminder that we have our work cut out for us!

Come meet our new Executive Committee that will be leading ICPR over the next two years! 

Membership in ICPR is open to all supporters of our mission of promoting peace with justice for the people of Palestine/Israel and the fulfillment of the rights of the Palestinian people. Our monthly business meeting takes place on the second Thursday of every month at 7:00pm at Westminster Presbyterian Church on 3208 Exposition Blvd., Austin 78703. January's meeting is on Thursday, January 12th, at 7:00 pm. Join us!   

Onwards for Palestine.. 
-Haithem El-Zabri.
