Holly is a symbol of goodwill and joy. In the Victorian language of flowers, holly means foresight. Holly is seen as a symbol of good luck in both Christianity and Islam. But most importantly for me, it is said that disputes are often solved "under the holly tree"

Friends of Sabeel Campaign Asking Oprah to Visit Palestine Also
Friends of Sabeel--North America
Voice of the Palestinian Christians
U.S. television talk show superstar Oprah Winfrey has been invited for a "solidarity visit" to Israel by Nobel Peace Prize winner and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, who will journey with her. The two visited Auschwitz in southern Poland in January 2006.
Sabeel joins the international email campaign to ask Oprah Winfrey to also visit Palestinian areas during her trip to Israel.
which Winfrey co-chairs with Bishop Tutu. She has done an amazing job in supporting human rights in South Africa. She is an important advocate of global human rights and it is critical that she has accurate information on how Palestinians are denied their basic human rights as a result of Israel's occupation.We want to ask her to also support human rights for Palestinians and to seek to understanding the similarities between apartheid in South Africa and Israel's policies of apartheid in Palestine.
