A two-page press release for a May 1979 conference in Washington, D.C., includes quotes from a variety of Jewish and Arab speakers and issue experts. The conference theme was how to achieve a comprehensive peace settlement for the Middle East that would include autonomy and safety for both Palestinians and Israelis.

After the conference, the November issue of Midstream magazine published two articles attacking AFSC and Quakers in their November issue, one by Rael Jean Isaac and one by Marvin Maurer.
