What we have here is a failure to communicate and, to be honest and forthright with the American people. It’s upsetting to think that the President believes that al Qaeda is responsible for the raging sectarian violence nor does he recognize that Americans’ support for the war broke down many, many months ago. We have grown accustomed to his disconnect from reality and yes, we are very concerned about terrorism but, it is his… Continue

WITHDRAW immediately or stay the present course? That is the key question about the war in Iraq today. American public opinion is decidedly against the war even in the "red states," more than half of Americans want out. That sentiment is understandable. The prewar dream of a… Continue

Playing Our Part: Enacting World Peace How does the average person can best participate in the effort toward a non-violent world?

It's not antisemitism, it is a balanced look at the Israel/Palestinian situation Some people say that Israel gets treated like a second class citizen in the family of nations. That's probably true.

The nation of Israel was a gift. Yes, Jews lived there at the time of creation and those particular Jews… Continue

I have decided to be unreasonable. I went beyond my reasons and
fears, and began to invite all my friends to join mepeace. We have to move beyond reason to make peace.

I am writing from the Kempinski Hotel in Ishtar, Jordan. A wonderful group of Palestinians and Israelis are here for this seminar of dialogue and conflict resolution. I have made new friends and I look forward to seeing them here on mepeace!
At the beginning of the seminar, I could not believe how beautiful the hotel is! The rooms are elegant and the service is impeccable. But even more than the hotel, I enjoy my new friends.
