    About IFLAC

    We believe that culture and literature can promote peace, freedom, and the enrichment of the quality of life. On the threshold of the 21st century, we shall endeavor to pave the way towards the fulfillment of our main ideal “one world and one humanity, all living in peace”. Our goal is to help build a Middle East and a world beyond war in the 21st century, by means of literature, culture and art. This endeavor is in harmony with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights embodied in the Charter of the United Nations.

    We strive for freedom of speech and expression, and for freedom from hostile and oppressive violence, whether it is war, or gender, physical, mental or moral oppression. We believe in the right of people everywhere to live in peace, and in their rights to pursue their various cultures, as well as human endeavors, and to obtain equal civil justice.

    Toward these ends, we organized an “International Congress on Conflict Resolution Through Culture and Literature”, in Shavei Zion, Galilee, in June 1999. Since the Founding Congress, seven Conferences have been held: Sydney (2001), London (2002), Bursa, Turkey (2003), Los Angeles (2005), Tel Aviv (2007), Jerusalem (2009) and Netanya, Israel (2012).

    IFLAC, under its former name: “The Friends of Literature Association”, was founded in 1985 in Haifa Israel, and was registered as a Voluntary Association in 1987. There are nine branches in Jewish, Arab and Druze sectors in Israel, actively and harmoniously working together. We hold regular literary and cultural meetings including: Lectures, Poetry Reading, Story-Telling, New Books celebrations, Interviews, Literary Weekend Seminars, Cultural Festivals, Symposiums, Congresses, Jewish and Arab/ Palestinian Students Meetings and Workshops.

      The dialogue is a search of truth,
      with the dialogue you receive and give
      and so many varied differences are bound.
      The dialogue can loosen so many knots:
      Political and religious, Social and cultural,
      Ethical and moral.
      It can dissipate distrust, contrasts, conflicts,
      however this dialogue needs a solid base
      to be efficient.
      What base can have the dialogue,
      when the desires are fragile,
      fragile are harmony and friendship,
      fragile are brotherhood and welcome,
      fragile is the spirit of cooperation.
      Read newspapers and watch television!
      When ever we see the dialogue
      lead to a conclusion?
      Never! So that the dialogue will lead to redemption,
      to wake up, to civilization, to unity,
      we need to immerse ourselves in the sacred,
      to learn the art of love.
      The “modern” dialogue
      that we see on television,
      it doesn’t have any armor
      and so it does only fear.
