مع وسائل الإعلام الجديدة، نحن رجال الإعلام

" كن أنت التغيير الذي تريد أن تراه في العالم" التكنولوجيا الحديثة تقوينا للتغيير_للسلام
تساعد وسائل الإعلام الحديثة، من خلال تمكيننا من التعبير عن أنفسنا والتفاعل ، جهودنا لحل الصراع في الشرق الأوسط. حيث أن النقل الأفقي للمعرفة من خلال شبكات التواصل الاجتماعي مثل الفيسبوك، يوتيوب وتويتر تقوينا لنبني فهم عبر التعلم الأفقي. بينما يميل التدريس لأن يكون تنازليا "من فوق لأسفل"، فان التعليم… Continue

Upon returning from an extensive trip to Turkey these past two weeks, I found my inbox flooded with commentary about the capricious nature of the current state of Turkish-Israeli relations. Many strong supporters of the bilateral relationship from both sides have found themselves questioning the future of a strategic cooperation between the Turks and the Jews that has existed for hundreds of years. A year after Israel's offensive in Gaza drove a wedge between the two governments, emotions are… Continue

Honesty, Compassion and Peacemaking
One of the most important traits for accomplishing peace between the Israeli and the Palestinian people is to be honest with each other. It sounds very simple, but it is not an easy task to do. Before negotiating, it is essential that one should confront his/her own thoughts and beliefs about the "other". Don't be afraid to say what you think. However, do not be offensive or distasteful.
But wait a minute, what is honesty?

Is Zionism a racist Ideology? What do you think?
There is a huge difference between Zionism and Judaism. The way I see it Zionism is an egocentric ideology that suppresses the Palestinian right of their land. Actually, although their founders were not religious but they tried to build this ideology on religious grounds borrowing it from the biblical place Zion.

This morning while checking on the internet my eyes went on a link under the title "Jewish Shit List", after taking a look at the contents with around 7,000 Jewish name, it became clear to me that it lists those who call for peace with the so called enemy "Palestinians" and condemn the occupation, and other practices being made by the government of their country Israel. Those people were described as a threat to Israel, and the Jewish people as a whole.
I just thought that even I am… Continue

Hi everybody, I am a co founder of a new organization named Orthodox Jews for Peace.
Our mission is to educate, and express, everything that is taught in the Torah on Peace.
We believe the notion that the Jewish and Palestinian peoples are inherently incapable of coexistence is a mistake.
This mistaken idea has been promoted at times inadvertently and sometimes purposefully by politically motivated individuals on both sides.
Our experiences coupled… Continue

Omri Buson says his "blood boils" every time he hears about the negotiations between Hamas and Israel over the release of Palestinian prisoners in exchange for the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.
From his point of view, Israel should have never ended last year's military offensive on Gaza without Shalit's return.
"We needed to hurt them and not have mercy ... to destroy every house till [we] found that soldier," says Buson, who dropped out of law school to… Continue

Thirteen Palestinian human rights organizations and legal advocacy groups appealed to President Mahmoud Abbas and de facto Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh in open letters, calling for the immediate commencement of internal investigations of the Goldstone report.
The groups demanded the investigations be carried out in compliance with the UN General Assembly resolution.
The letter explained that on 5 February 2010 the UN Secretary-General is due to submit his report on the… Continue

Environmental diplomacy and the Middle East
MICHAEL M. COHEN*
The folk rock musician James Taylor laments in one of his songs, “And in between what might have been and what has come to pass, a misbegotten guess alas and bits of broken glass.”
The ongoing tragic saga of the Arab-Israeli conflict can be summed up in this poignant line. This conflict repeats its refrain of violence and dehumanization… Continue

A little spice to tomorrow's chat:
“Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land” provides a striking comparison of U.S. and international media coverage of the crisis in the Middle East, zeroing in on how structural distortions in U.S. coverage have reinforced false perceptions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This pivotal documentary exposes how the foreign policy interests of American political elites--oil, and a need to have a secure military base in the region, among others--work in… Continue
