(AIME) has a unique mission to promote and join together interfaith dialog and faith-based action that addresses human rights violations caused by the U.S. supported illegal Israeli occupation. Our shared Abrahamic beliefs in One God and the duty to love our neighbors are our moral compass, compelling us to seek and speak out for a just peace in Israel-Palestine and a major shift in U.S. policy upon which it depends.
