I am a Palestinian addopted by british at the age of 9 and braught up in the UK. Now married to an american and living in the USA. I had two older brothers that died fighting the Isralies and many family members who have and are still suffering because of the situation there.But I also see many Israelies suffering too. I have been condemed by many of my people as a traitor as I believe we should and can live together in peace. I truley believe
Why I want peace:
The Holy land is soaked with the blood of inocent victems on both sides.The children are taught to hate . We need to teach the children compassion, tollerance and forgivenes. That is the only way to peace..
Interests and activities:
I am boreing! I like to read, gardening, cooking and just being an ordinary housewife
Something you didn't know about me:
.I was braght up in an orphenage in Ramalla from the age of 5 till i was addopted. When I was addopted I wasnt allowed contact with my family back home. or speak my mother tongue. The resentment still burns today
How I found mepeace.org:
Just by chance, maybe God led me here
What I want to achieve here:
I would like to meet like minded people from both sides, learn about their lives and views. It is only by sharing and understanding that we can learn to respect others
Do you promise to respect others and our guidelines and not spam?
A True Story By Faisal Al-kateep
I am a Palestinian Arab from Hizmeh, a village between Jerusalem and Ramallah. When I was 15 years old I fought against the Israeli Occupation in search of freedom. At that time I thought every Jewish person, whether soldier or citizen, man or woman, young or old, should be killed. I rejected the right for any Jew to live and every Jew was a target. I was just a kid, believe me, and I didn’t understand anything about politics or the Arab-Israeli conflict. I was arrested and sat in jail for 12 years. This was during the first intifada from 1987. At that time nobody talked about peace but only of violence. I matured during my time in jail. I started studying and reading books on politics, literature, poetry, and about the Madrid Conference.
It gave me hope to live in peace and dignity. I learned that violence only breeds violence and that peace is the only solution for the two nations, the only way for both to have a respectful and beautiful future. We live on the same land. We are neighbors. We drink the same water and both pray to a monotheistic God. We must live in peace on the basis of religion for God and land for everyone
In one of your posts you indicated you were looking for family.
There is a chain of mini-markets in Toronto called Rabba Fine Foods: www.rabba.com. Back in the early 80s, when the company had only one outlet, I shopped there frequently and became friendly with the owner, a man named George who was born in Bethlehem. We conversed in English and Hebrew. He told me that he was born in Bethlehem, but happened to be in Haifa when Israel declared independence and could not return home. He eventually moved to Canada and some years later opened his first mini-market.
