Our Green values oblige us to support popular movements for peace and demilitarization in Israel-Palestine, especially those that reach across the lines of conflict to engage both Palestinians and Israelis of good will.
We support the implementation of boycott and divestment initiatives against Israel similar to those applied to South Africa in the apartheid era, which includes pressuring our government to impose embargoes and sanctions against Israel; and we support maintaining these nonviolent punitive measures until Israel meets its obligation to recognize the Palestinian people's inalienable right to self-determination and fully complies with the precepts of international law by
- Ending its occupation and colonization of all Palestinian lands and dismantling the Wall in the West Bank
- Recognizing the fundamental rights of Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; and
- Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194.
We support a U.S. foreign policy that promotes the creation of one secular, democratic state for Palestinians and Israelis on the land between the Mediterranean Sea and the River Jordan as the national home of both peoples, with Jerusalem as its capital.

Greens March for Palestine in Worcester on Black Friday
Hundreds marched past Worcester's City Hall Friday afternoon to support Palestinians in the face of Israel's murderous assault on Gaza and, more recently, its attacks on the West Bank. Many marchers from the Central MASS Green-Rainbow Party carried signs and led chants, including "Israel bombs, USA pays, how many kids did you kill today?”
On November 29, 1947 the United Nations adopted Resolution 181 that would divide Great Britain's former Palestinian mandate into Jewish and Arab states. In the intervening years, Israel has been engaged in a series of wars with adjacent Arab states and displaced Palestinians.
As a potential 2026 candidate for Governor of Maryland, as a human being, and as a member of the Maryland Green Party, I am committed to peace, justice, and democracy for Palestinians and Israelis alike. I am deeply saddened by the violence, the occupation and the system of Israeli apartheid. I am angry at the United States federal government, and numerous state governments, for the direct and material enabling of Israeli regimes that continue to defy international law and make peace impossible.
We are now one month into Israel’s unrelenting bombardment of Gaza. Over 10,000 Palestinians are dead. More are missing under the rubble. Nearly half of them are children. More children have been killed in Gaza than the number killed in all armed conflicts globally over an entire year – for the last three years.
And it’s happening on our watch. With our tax dollars.
Sen. Bob Menendez says the U.S. should help Israel "wipe Hamas off the face of the Earth." Christina Khalil and Madelyn Hoffman disagree.
NEW JERSEY — Should the United States help Israel to "effectively wipe Hamas off the face of the Earth?" This statement from Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey – given less than three weeks after Hamas' Oct. 7 attack – is now seeing some fierce criticism from two of his former and current Senate challengers: Christina Khalil and Madelyn Hoffman of the Green Party of New Jersey.
Casualties and suffering have been heavy for Israelis and Palestinians alike.
Hundreds of Green Party activists from around the Northeast and Midwest joined with a 100,000 people calling for a ceasefire in Gaza. Other Greens marched around the county and across the Pacific to Seoul demanding an end to the genocide in Gaza.

My name is Peter LaVenia, and I am the co-chair of the Green Party of New York. I'm here with the rest of you to call for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and the end of the ongoing genocide being conducted against the Palestinian people!
What the United States is doing is shocking to many because we live in an era when images and video can be shared immediately. But it is also surprising because for most in the United States, we do not learn that it has always been this government's policy to back its client states when they conduct wholesale murder against an entire population.
The Green Party Peace Action Committee (GPAX) urges that the party participate in the wave of worldwide mass protests against the US-Israeli slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza and elsewhere.
Our main concern is US military and diplomatic participation in the war and in the criminal siege and bombardment that have already killed thousands in Gaza, wounded tens of thousands, and left a million homeless.
