Arch is proud to sign on to this Philanthropy Open Letter for Humanity and Justice from Grassroots International in support of peace and Palestinian liberation. We wish to add that we believe the “root causes” are broader than what is referenced in the statement. While Israeli government policy is a” root cause, it is not “the” root cause. In our view, it is equally important to understand and recognize the role of Western Imperialism, US foreign policy and the widespread influence of Christian Zionism in more fully understanding the root causes of the situation. Despite our view that the root causes analysis deserved more comprehensive treatment, we felt compelled to add our name to the letter as it brings an important perspective from progressive funders and other organizations.
