Ta’ayush activity, Jordan Valley, February 18, 2017


Ta’ayush (Hebrew: תעאיוש‎, Arabic: تعايش‎‎; lit. “coexistence” or “life in common”) is a grassroots volunteer organization established in the fall of 2000 by a joint network of Palestinians and Israelis to counter the nationalist reactions aroused by the Al-Aqsa Intifada.[1][2] It describes itself as “a grassroots movement of Arabs and Jews working to break down the walls of racism and segregation by constructing a true Arab-Jewish partnership. Together we strive for a future of equality, justice and peace through concrete, daily, non-violent actions of solidarity to end the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories and to achieve full civil equality for all.”[3]

They organized convoys of food and medical supplies to Palestinians during sieges in the Second Intifada.[4][5]

…………………..Ta’ayush has been described as belonging to the radical left.[16] The organization’s activities, which, like Machsom Watch, Yesh Gvul and Women in Black are focused on specific issues, rather than an inclusive approach embracing all problems,[17] are ignored by the Israeli mainstream but find support among Arab Palestinian parties and the extreme left.[18] Ta’ayush has no ideology (attempts to form a constitution failed) and its members restrict their work to concrete activities of solidarity.[19] Ta’ayush has a pacifist agenda, being opposed to both the Israeli occupation and Palestinian movements that employ violent forms of resistance.[20] It openly opposes the measures taken by the state of Israel in the Occupied Territories, policies that lead to ‘isolation, poor medical care, house arrest, the destruction of educational institutions, and a lack of water and food for Palestinians’.[21] Ta’ayush activists underwrite civil disobedience, support a Two State Solution,[22] and routinely break the law as they consider government’s decision to be illegal according to international law and therefore illegitimate.[18]Palestinians mark 12th anniv. of popular resistance
