Refka, please tell me what steps - how did you come to nonviolence. I have studied and learned what we through our US foreign policy has done to the world and I am sick - After 61 years having been born and lived all my years as a woman, professional, wife and mother I am saddened to call myself a US citizen. My political maturity has led me to this sadness. I am angered after having traveled to Liberia, the West Bank, and Gaza and seen only the little I have seen. I need to know how you and others have been able to move from viokence, which I feel would be a natural reaction to nonviolence. I want to learn so that I can find ways to help all of us learn nonviolence. How in all those years of prison, what did you reaad, what conversations within yourself and with others did you have that led you to this place. Can it only be done if you come from the place of religion? Please consider going on to to learn the type of education that some of us in America are attempting to get heard - the films, the articles, the newsletters - July and August focus on what we saw in Gaza and the West Bank. This is an international nonprofit that I helped found. We are seeking to educate peace. Help me learn more ways to do this. Love & Peace, Mary

A True Story By Faisal
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

الحب هوة ألحرية أنت تحب أنت حر
هيا بنا نحب ونعشق بدون حدود أن ألحب يجعلنا سعداء
ألحب هوة من أجمل الصفات التي منحنا أيها ألخالق
لآن ألحب يعلمنا أن نحترم ألآخرين بغض النظر عن لونهم ومعتقداتهم
أرجوكم لا تتركوا في قلوبكم مكان للكراهية بل دعوا قلوبكم تحب وتعشق كل شيء جميل
وصدقوني أنكم عندما تحبون ستشعرون بسعادة ليس لها مثيل
فيصل الخطيب لا يوجد في قلبه مكان للكره بل مكان كبير للحب ولكل شيء جميل
