I am a bethlehemite living in Beitjala near Gilo... since I was a child I used to go to Gilo every afternoon walking with my dad and mom taking our sandwiches and going to the parks there playing with jewish and israeli children, we had a lot of fun, we used to play without fear, we used to play with each others as HUMAN BEING....then when THEY built the bridge of street 60 that connects gilo with har gilo and other areas, and then built this big wall all around Beitjala, we were prohibided to go and visit people in Gilo, we lost connections with them, I don´t know anything about them,,, I was almost killed many times by israeli´s tanks and bullits and bombs,,,ran away from our house for 2 months... in that `period I met many jewish people from all around the world and peace organizations from all around the world also who wanted to know more about our story and protect our house by doing "human shields" with their bodies,, I started attending peace conferences in Tel aviv, Ramalla, Bethlehem, Haifa, Hardov, even Germany and Paris.... untill I left to spain 3 years ago to study,,,,I will be back on september to Palestine and Israel to coninue what I started long ago.....SHOWING THE WORLD THAT AM NOT A TERRORIST AND I WANT PEACE!!!
Why I want peace:
I want peace because "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH" I want to live like others in europe and USA, to live in freedom without needing any stupid permission to go from Bethlehem to Jerusalem, without having hard time on check points, to get to know jewish and israeli´s who wants peace also, who wants to make a change with me,,, though its a little bit hard now a days,, BUT WE NEED TO GIVE IT A TRY!!
Interests and activities:
travelling, knowing more people, cultures, countries...
I am studying hotel management so I could be one day a hotel manager as tourism and hotel is one of the most important thing both in Israel and Palestine,,, THE HOLY LAND!!!!!
