Profile Information

My personal story:
I grew up in both Israel and the States, with one Israeli and one American parent. After Rabin's assassination, I grew more and more concerned with Netanyahu's policies that were frustrating the effort to make peace and endangering so many lives. I decided to become politically active. Today, I am the Director of Strategic Communications at Americans for Peace Now.
Why I want peace:
It's all about saving lives. It's about creating a future where Israelis and Palestinians can live together, freely, and independently.
Interests and activities:
Cooking.
Something you didn't know about me:
I'm expecting a son soon...

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.
