"شكرا على بلاغك، أوافق على محتواه موافقة تامة. تمر علينا الآن فترة غير سهلة وقد نواجه أوقات صعبة في المستقبل القريب، ولكن السلام سوف يسود في هذه البلاد لأن الرب وضعنا على هذه الأرض لكي نعيش برفاه وليس من أجل الموت بالقتال. رمضان كريم وكل عام وأنت…"

Profile Information

My personal story:
I was born in Tel Aviv, lived almost my entire life in Holon. A native speaker of Hebrew, but also speak English, Arabic, some French and a bit of Spanish. I have a BA degree in linguistics. I am very active in the Israeli chapter of Wikimedia and in the Hebrew and Arabic versions of Wikipedia.
Why I want peace:
My grandparents had to face two world war, lost most of their families, and eventually fled their homes to save their lives. They found refuge in Tel Aviv. They mourned the past, but regarded living here as a huge privilege as they were devoted Zionists. My father had to go to three wars and postponed his wedding with my mother to respect a family member who was killed. Striving for peace is quite trivial having been brought up with these stories at the background of our lives.
Interests and activities:
Reading, writing, traveling
Something you didn't know about me:
Due to a bureaucratic oddity, I was declared the IDF women's department champion in Israeli history and geogrphy competition. I was 19 years old, doing my copulsory service as a teacher.
How I found mepeace.org:
I met Eyal at the annual Jaffa Conference.
What I want to achieve here:
I am still exploring this site.

A look into Islam - the holy month of Ramadan

Posted on August 17, 2009 at 4:18pm 0 Comments

Ramadan رمضان is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. In the pre-Islamic era (known in Arabic as Al-Jahiliya), Arabs used a lunisolar calendar, similar to the one used by Jews today, or the one used in ancient Babylonia. During that time, Ramadan occurred at the heart of Summer, hence its name: "the month of ember" or "the month of hot ember-like sand" (akin to Hebrew רמץ). Today, Muslim use a purely lunar calendar, and therefore Ramadan can occur in any season of the year - each year a bit… Continue

A look into the past - the British Mandate of Palestine

Posted on August 15, 2009 at 11:05pm 0 Comments

The British Mandate of Palestine was the political entity that governed the region known in English as Palestine from July 1920 until the 14th of May 1948. Its territory included what is known today as the State of Israel, the Palestinian Territories (the West Bank and the Gaza Strip) and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. The part east to the Jordan River and Wadi Araba was given an autonomous status as the Emirate of Transjordan, while the western part of the territory was governed by a British… Continue

סיפור אמיתי
אני ערבי פלסטיני מהכפר חיזמה הנמצא בין ירושלים רמאללה
כשהייתי בגיל 15 נלחמתי נגד הכיבוש הישראלי
בשבל החופש הייתי חושיב כל אדם יהודי חייל או אזרח גבר או אישה קטן או גדול צריך לההרג
עד בא יום נסיתי לשלול לבן אדם את חיים שלו לא הייתי מכיר אתו היה בשביל יהודי וכל יהודי היא המטרה שלי להרוג
תאמינו לי הייתי רק ילד לא מבין כלום בפוליטיקה
או את הסכסוך הערבי הישראלי
בסוף נעצרתי לתקופה של 12 שנים
למדע כל זה קרה בשנת האינתיפאדה הראשונה 1987. באותו שלב. אף אחד לא מדבר על שלום
רק מדברים שני הצדדים רק על אלימות

התחלתי לגדול ואני בכלא התחלתי ללמוד לקרוא
ספרים על פוליטיקה. ספרות. שירה וסיפורים העולם.
השלום במדריד.
ועידת מדריד נתן לי תקווה החיים לחיות בשלןם
ובכבוד . למדתי כי אלימות תבי רק אלימות
והשלום הא הפתרון היחיד בין שני העמים למען עתיד יפה מכובד בין שני העמים
אנחנו חיים על אותה קרקע.אנחנו שכנים שותים מאותו המים מתפללים עבור אלוהים אחד
אנו צריכים לחיות בשלום על בסיס של הדת לאלוהים והאדמה לכלאם

Nice to meet you, Dror. I am sorry about your family member that was killed and your father had to postpone his wedding. I hardly saw my relatives due to occupation.
We also know sorrow as well. We also know both the human experience and what we both need and have in common and must have for future generations. The time is now.
