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.
There is a law governing all Jaisalmer Osriil talk about peace and the rule of law that Palestine is Arab land are common between the Jewish state and a Palestinian state and recommended the appointment of the border and Israel in order to create peace we must commit Israel border demarcation and moving in the right to create wars, wars do not think that the Israeli people agree This bet that the Lord created us to be the owners of the messages before we take the right to block messages of war and peace, and create what is required is that we all stand before the front doors .. Part I \ UN resolution, which makes a common Arab Palestine is a land between Israel and the Palestinian state and Israel recommended the appointment of the border and in the history of 29 \ 11 \ 1947 .. And Part II \ decision of war and fire, which makes the land of Palestine joint makers of war burn vegetation and the ground and in the history of 14 \ 5 \ 1948
هناك قانون يحكم الجميع قياده أسرئيل تتحدث عن السلام والقانون حكم أن فلسطين أرض عربيه وهى مشتركه بين الدوله العبريه والدوله الفلسطينيه وأوصى أسرائيل بتعيين الحدود وحتى نخلق السلام علينا أن نلزم أسرائيل بتعيين الحدود وتمضى فى الطريق الصحيح ان الحروب تخلق حروب ولا أعتقد بأن الشعب الاسرائيلى يوافق على هذا الرهان ان الرب خلقنا لنكون أصحاب رسالات قبل أن نكون أصحاب حق ورسالتى أن أمنع الحروب وأصنع السلام والمطلوب هو أن نقف جميعا أمام أمام بابان .. الباب الأول\قرار الأمم المتحده والذى يجعل فلسطين أرض عربيه مشتركه بين الدوله العبريه والدوله الفلسطينيه ويوصى أسرائيل بتعيين الحدود والصادر فى تاريخ 29\11\1947 .. والباب الثانى \ قرار الحرب والنار والذى يجعل من فلسطين ارض مشتركه لصناع الحروب تحرق الاخضر واليابس والصادر فى تاريخ 14\5\1948
Hi Christine! :)
Thank you for thinking of me on my birthday.
I had a good day. The weather was particularly nice (given the fact that there had been VERY hot weather in Massachusetts the past few days prior to my birthday-- unusual for typical New England weather at the end of April).
I went to a Nigerian restaurant with some friends (had goat meat for the first time I believe!), and then we went to see a movie about Mexicans that come to the US to labor, and all of the hardships that they have to go through.
(Latin America has become a really big interest to me as of late-- I am really interested in the culture, the people and the politics, and also how the actions of my government have affected the people there-- usaully for the worse).
How are things?
What have you been up to as of late?
I will be reading, rather than talking. I intend to focus on books, and also use some internet sites. Ankara evden eve nakliyat şirketi olarak bizler sizlere en kaliteli hizmeti veriyoruz.evden eve nakliyat

1 year, and this war will be over. (That is the way I thought for about 40 years.) Now, I know better than to think that..!!!
We decided to choose an age at with we would like to die, rather than suffer. My cousin chose 71, which alarmed me, since she is already 65. I chose 75. A day or so later, I started to think, what is it I still want to see or do with my life ?? I decided I would like to see a satisfactory resolution to the Palestinian problem, in my life-time.
I hope that peace would prevail in all the world, especially in the Palestinian territories and Israel has no alternative to peace and a Palestinian, I experimented with it the loss of the war parties of the peace is therefore the profit of the parties
hi ,glad that you like the photo, its a picture of ( the dome of the rock) and in arabic language called ( kobbet al-sakhra ) its very wonderful and holly place in jerusalem in palestine , you cant believe we cant go there because the jews prevent us to do , i miss this place alot and i hope i will go there soon ( i took this picture since three years) too many people hope to go there but they cant , you can go if you get a premission from the jews (they give the primission just for old people , very very very sick people) the most wish for me in this moment is go there
Also, do you think that you could please repost it?
I guess the other thing that I am concerned about this community (as you mentioned) is people manipulating others.
(I don't want to make myself sound vulnerable or nieve) but this is the internet, and if I work closely with someone here, and plan to work with them at a peace event or conference (hypothetical situation) and find out that they had made up a full hidden identity-- someone and something that they were not, I would lose a lot of trust in a lot of people in this community (and others as well)-- at least make myself skeptical over who is honest, who are deceitful.
Thank you for the comments and contribution to my blog-- it really brought a smile to my face! :)
You seem to be a very smart woman, with a lot of wisdom.
I was going to comment back on the blog, and I accidently pressed a button that was to delete it (I thought it was a reply button-- the way this site has updated has really confused me-- I wish that this website had more explicit directions! :S) so I really do apologize. I hope that you are not made at me.
I thank that integrity is imperative for peace making and making some sort of long lasting agreement-- I know even at personal relationships, when I don't always tell the truth when needed, bad things happen.
