Tourist Guidebook - ATG


The tourist guidebook: “Palestine & Palestinians” by the Alternative Tourism Group (ATG) of Beit Sahour, Bethlehem, Palestine provides an in-depth, updated journey through the entire range of Palestinian culture: ancient and modern history, archaeology, religion, architecture and politics, including the daily realities of Israeli occupation. It describes places rooted in Palestinian memory: sites which bear witness to a history and identity created from contact with civilisations of the Middle East, Mediterranean, Europe and Arab Peninsula. It also presents the contemporary tragedy and struggle of a people seeking recognition of their rights and details of their ongoing search for an end to injustice through a viable peace and statehood.

A great variety of documentary material, biographies of culturally significant personalities, poems, popular songs and recommended reading list provide readers with opportunities to broaden their horizons, while many contacts provide a range of possibilities for talks or tours with specialists, or meetings with local people in their homes. The book offers practical information (transport, hotels, cafes, restaurants, museums, hiking routes, cultural centres, etc.) so you may plan your own multifaceted visit. As a guidebook, “Palestine & Palestinians” is a comprehensive guide to Palestine, including those parts of Israel where Palestinian culture and traditional hospitality still thrive.

“Palestine & Palestinians” presents a version of justice tourism to enhance the world’s increasing interest in the cause of the Palestinian people while providing tools to go beyond misleading stereotypes. The book sets out to facilitate visits to Palestine for tourists who wish to increase their understanding and even work with Palestinians and Israelis towards a just, viable peace. At the same time, it provides enough material for those readers who prefer to travel far and wide in the comfort of their own armchairs. Or it can simply be used as a reliable guidebook for regular visitors.

About Alternative Tourism Group (ATG)

ATG is a Palestinian NGO specializing in tours and pilgrimages that include critical examinations of the history, culture, and politics of the Holy Land. Established in 1995, ATG operates according to the tenets of "justice tourism", that is, tourism that holds as its central goals the creation of economic opportunities for the local community, positive cultural exchange between guest and host through one-on-one interaction, the protection of the environment, and political/historical education. ATG works to encourage all tourism operators to abandon exploitive mass tourism and to adopt practices that positively affect the host population. Through these methods, ATG seeks to promote a positive image of Palestine and its people and to contribute to establishment of a just peace in the area.



“Widerstand ist eines Christen Recht und Pflicht“

Kairos for Palestine - Rifat Odeh Kassis



Kairos Palestine is a document which represents the Christian Palestinians’ word to the world about what is happening in Palestine. It is written at this time when we wanted to see the Glory of the grace of God in this land and in the sufferings of its people. In this spirit the document requests the international community to stand by the Palestinian people who have faced oppression, displacement and suffering for more than six decades. The suffering continues while the international community silently looks on at the occupying State, Israel. Our word is a cry of hope, with love, prayer and faith in God. We address it first of all to ourselves and then to all the churches and Christians in the world, asking them to stand against injustice and apartheid, urging them to work for a just peace in our region, calling on them to revisit theologies that justify crimes perpetrated against our people and the dispossession of the land.

The book, Kairos for Palestine is written by Rifat Odeh Kassis, one of the co-authors and general coordinator of Kairos Palestine. Rifat Odehh Kassis shares his insights and analysis on the document and the later established movement in this book.

Abridgment of the Preface

It is a great challenge to write about events that are still unfolding. In this book, the challenge is applicable both to the Kairos Palestine initiative (its impact around the world, its role at home in Palestine) and to the nature of life under occupation.Since the launch of Kairos Palestine in December 2009, the authors have received, and continue to receive, scores of responses from individuals and communities across the globe. Most are positive, and their solidarity is profoundly encouraging to us...... The vision of “A Moment of Truth,” the Kairos Palestine Document, is a vision formed by the strength of communities, not by officials; it is a vision focused intently on the interests of the people without being appropriated by the interests of corrupt political leadership. It is a vision that raises the call of the Palestinian people, but it was not meant only for Palestine; indeed, the message of the Kairos is a universal one, and it is coming to life throughout the region...... There are Jews, Christians and Muslims alike whose positions on the conflict in our region – whether they are outwardly dismissive of Palestinians’ right to equality and dignity, or whether they promote the kind of normalisation that perpetuates injustice rather than correcting it – only succeed in prolonging the bloodshed. As Kairos Palestine, we seek the solidarity of those who refuse to accept this cycle.We share another vision, and we will share another reality.
