On this day exactly two years ago, i registered mepeace.org. Happy Birthday and thank you for helping us grow as an organization, community and platform for peacemakers.
We advanced Middle East peace this year, online and on the ground: Online, we attracted visitors from 176 countries and 6, 877 cities, from New York to Sidney and Tel Aviv to Gaza City, Amman, Beirut, Cairo, Damascus, etc... This year we received more than 100,000 visits for 804,753 page visits on mepeace.org.
On the ground, our peacemakers met in person as we hosted our first Peace Cafe on June 1 (see video: www.mepeace.org/video/661876:Video:68842). In July, we met in Amman, Jordan, for our first international conference: "mepeace.org: Making Things Possible". In August, we hosted our second Peace Cafe, the first event organized by our peacemakers. This was followed in September with the Iftar-Shabbat dinner (our first event featured in the Palestinian media). Read our news at: www.mepeace.org/notes/News.
