- The Olive Tree Initiative is featured in the San Francisco Examiner August 29, 2010
From the Examiner:
UC Santa Cruz students Sami Abdelhalim and Mary "Carrie" McKee plan to fly to the Middle East to witness the Arab-Israeli conflict firsthand, and hopefully gain some understanding of the drawn-out dispute. Both Politics majors, the two students are traveling to this unstable area as part of the Olive Tree Initiative - a student-run group that promotes peace dialogue. The Olive Tree Initiative promotes conversation and dialogue for and about the continual Israeli-Arab conflict. Based in UC Irvine, the Initiative also has a branch in UC Santa Barbara and is most known for this specific program that sends people to the Middle East - all expenses paid.
