Profile Information

My personal story:
I'm from the U.S., Jewish and queer and I am always saddened by how divided the queer community is over the middle east. I have a spiritual and emotional attachment to Israel, and at the same I have to acknowledge that the "blue and white" state is not totally rosy.
Why I want peace:
Driving ourselves to extinction doesn't seem like a good plan.
Interests and activities:
music, belly dancing, yoga, art, kink, spiritual
Something you didn't know about me:
Prince is my guilty pleasure. So is youtube. (cringes)
Favorite website:
http://www.ciis.edu/
How I found mepeace.org:
through a friend of a friend
What I want to achieve here:
I want to have a more open perspective, to be able to listen to all sides with an open heart and mind, provided that it's not hateful. So far I've just been lurking on the different forums doing some reading.
Do you promise to respect others and our guidelines and not spam?
Yes

attachment to religious identity

Posted on May 8, 2011 at 7:22pm 0 Comments

I am very attached to my Jewish identity. It is very important to me. As I have this attachment, i am letting go of nationalism, or, more simply put for me, an attachment to a nation. The latter is easier than the former. I have heard it said that giving up national identity goes hand in hand with giving up religious identity; that you cannot do away with one and not the other.

 

I muse over the lyrics of a song most of us have heard before:

Imagine there's no…

Hi, Rebecca. It's a pleasure to meet you. I have nothing against gays, lesbians, bisexuals, or transgender people personally. I like Prince ( as in the singer), too. :-)

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.
