Dear Friends in Peace,
I am in search for people to help fund and/or organize and/or participate in a high-profile convention of leading Israeli and Palestinian intellectuals and public figures. The convention will be dedicated to the cause of putting the corner-stone to the Israeli and the Palestinian civic national movements, which movements will then demand of the leaderships on both sides to take decisive initiatives towards peace; and to the cause of launching an open and lively public debate over the core issues that lie at the bottom of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. (Note: the concept of nation or nationality is notoriously vague and subject to endless debate. Here I skip all that and am referring to a special case of nationality known as civic nationality, which is a general solidarity amongst the citizens of a state or amongst the members of a public aspiring for a state; which solidarity is equalitarian, liberal, pluralistic and independent of religion, ethnicity, gender and other group affiliations.)
