The IFLAC IPCTV project: a global peace culture television and internet channel
an article by Prof. Ada Aharoni, IFLAC Founding President and Ms. Danni Reches, IFLAC IPCTV Assistant

At IFLAC, the International Forum for the Literature and Culture of Peace, we strive to eliminate the causes of violence that lead to destruction, misery and poverty. The major project of IFLAC this year is the IPCTV: the International Peace Culture Television and Internet Channel.

IPCTV will:
-- Feature not only problems, but also solutions to the problems.
-- Headline cases of peaceful development and harmonious progress in human endeavors that replace: killing, violence, hate, fear, jealousy and greed, with: respect for life, honesty, harmony, understanding, love, and care.
-- It will give coverage and give recognition to people, women and men leaders, institutions and projects that eliminate war, killing, violence, terror and poverty, and foster peace, communication, conflict resolution and reconciliation.
-- The IPCTV objectives will also aim at influencing media's performance across the globe, and change the culture of violence and death to a Culture of Peace.

IFLAC calls on sponsors and partners from all over the world that can help realize the Foundation of the IPCTV Project before the end of 2013. Please send the IPCTV project, which is linked here to your Ministry of Culture, and to prospective sponsors and please publish it in your bulletin. Please relate why the IPCTV is so vital and crucial to the safety and welfare of the world. We would be very glad if you can help us with this very important project that can banish war from the world and build a global planet beyond war.

The Peace Culture TV by Satellite which will be available on Internet too, could start in Haifa, the city of harmony and peace where Jews, Muslims and Christians live and flourish together in harmony. It should then spread to the whole of the troubled Middle East, and it could function at its start in 3 languages: English, Hebrew and Arabic. It could gradually cover other major places of conflict, with the goal, in due time, to cover the whole global village. It will gradually become the most popular TV and Internet Channel because it will have the good of the people at heart, and will reflect what people want of life and will give them tools how to attain it. War is not democratic, because the great majority of the people in the world do not want wars.

The impact of the multitude of NGO’s can increase dramatically by uniting in a global Campaign for the creation of the IPCTV and the foundation of a “Sustainable Future.” The IPCTV will function according to the highest professional standards; it will take into consideration the various ethnic entities, and appeal to every major culture. IFLAC that was founded in 1999 has a long history of excellent materials and subjects it has developed over the years, in its various branches around the world, and it is ready to put them to use at the outset of the establishment of the IPCTV. We call for sponsors for this urgent and challenging project, for the creation of a better global village for our children, and for us, beyond war, violence and hunger.

I went to the links on this article about IFLAC and I don't find any mention of working with the Palestinian people to recognize their basic human rights that are being denied by Israel.  See your own discussion piece, Presenting the Palestinian Side.

Therefore, I don't see how this project can help bring peace to the Middle East.
