News & Announcements

As you consider your Holiday giving this year, you may want to check out a couple of the following websites. You can find fair trade items, earth friendly gifts, gifts that give back, and gifts for loved ones who don’t need anything themselves, but like to be remembered. The gifts are beautiful, wonderfully crafted, and help support great causes, artisans, women, and people all around the world earn a livelihood. If you order items right after Thanksgiving, there is plenty of time for your items to arrive before Christmas. Happy Holidays!

FCNL has offered a toll-free number, 1-855-68-NO War,  to call and ask for your Senators to urge them NOT to cosponsor an AIPAC (Israeli Lobby) bill (S. Res. 65 in the Senate) that says if Israel "is compelled to take military action in self-defense, the U.S. government should stand with Israel and provide diplomatic, military and economic support to the government of Israel." This is similar to the disastrous resolution that got us into a long war in Iraq and would surely hamper chances for a negotiated settlement.
