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.

-- Feature not only problems, but also
solutions to the problems.

harmonious progress in human endeavors that
replace: killing, violence, hate, fear, jealousy
and greed, with: respect for life, honesty,
harmony, understanding, love, and care.

to people, women and men leaders, institutions and

terror and poverty, and foster peace,
communication, conflict resolution and
-- 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.

Latest reader comment:
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.
