Palestinian citizens of Israel constitute at least a fifth of Israel’s population and yet they are often overlooked, by Israel and by the international community. Inspired by Mohammed Amin’s 2-16 article, Remember the Forgotten Israelis, Oasis of Peace has organised a symposium in London to explore the issues at stake.

Based on the ethos of Neve Shalom / Wahat al-Salam (NSWaS), the mission of Oasis of Peace is to advance social equity and cohesion in both Israel and the United Kingdom.
