Building an International Nonviolent Response to Occupation

Rev. Naim Ateek
Director and President of the Sabeel Center of Jerusalem

Naim Ateek is Director and President of the Sabeel Center in Jerusalem. The Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center ( ) is an ecumenical grassroots movement that believes that both Palestinians and Israelis need and deserve a lasting peace and security, based on principles of morality and international law and achieved through non-violent means. Founded in 1992, Sabeel has been a leader in promoting a negotiated and just resolution to the conflict, one that establishes two sovereign states side-by-side, and a shared Jerusalem.

Sabeel has experienced a heightened profile recently due to the accusation by journalists in the Jewish press and representatives of mainstream American Jewish organizations that it is promoting an anti-semitic theology, as well as economic strategies for justice.

Rev Ateek is author and editor of numerous books, including Justice and Only Justice: A Palestinian Theology of Liberation. He lectures widely in Israel and Palestine as well as internationally.

Rev. Ateek's appearance is part of “Building a Just Peace: Important Perspectives on the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict” a year-long community education and dialog series. The 2005-2006 series brings a number of speakers to Chicago-area audiences including Rev. Naim Ateek, Yigal Bronner, Michael Tarazi, Joel Beinin, Lisa Hajjar, Kathleen and Bill Christison, and Nadia Hijab. For information on Oak Park appearances, go to .
