International Alliance for Arab-Israel Peace
INTERNATIONAL ALLIANCE FOR ARAB-ISRAEL PEACE
An unofficial organization of prominent citizens, sometimes known as the Copenhagen Group, founded in January 1997 at Copenhagen to promote a just resolution to the Israel-Palestine issue. It holds public meetings and conferences, lobbies governments, monitors the human rights situation, and attempts to mobilize public opinion for its broad goals. The founding membership consisted of sixty representatives of a broad range of political opinion (from the DFLP to Likud) from Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and Palestine. The original founding committee consisted of David Kimche of Israel, Lutfi al-Khuli of Egypt, Ihsan Shurdom of Jordan, and Sari Nusseibeh of Palestine.
