My personal story:
A lifelong commitment to an inclusive and just Israeli society, and to an Israel at peace with its neighbors.
Why I want peace:
Israel cannot fulfill its potential -- human, economic, scientific or cultural -- without achieving peace. Until a durable, comprehensive peace is attained, Israel must find a way to reach a modus vivendi with its neighbors. Israel cannot hope to sustain itself as a viable democracy without making peace -- both within its borders and beyond.

Why the Road to Israeli-Palestinian Peace Runs Through Jewish-Arab Relations in Israel

Posted on October 2, 2009 at 9:22pm 1 Comment

Even as President Obama flexes American muscle to ratchet up efforts to reach a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, the relationship between Israel’s Jewish and Palestinian-Arab citizens remains the central domestic challenge facing Israel, where closing economic gaps and advancing coexistence and reconciliation are critical steps to fostering a climate of peace in the region.

Some contend that Israeli-Palestinian peace will in itself resolve the longstanding… Continue

I was highly impressed with your blog on the road to peace. I have worked a long time tring to work with the Israeli lobbiest and NY Jewish coaliations and to no avail I have been stone walled. I found out a lot of detailed information during the death of Senator Kennedy and I have a mountain of information to research and it is taking me in a lot of directions.

I would like your take on the Lukid Party to the peace efforts and your thoughts. Let me know your thoughts on the Israeli Ambassador to Russia and his organization into banking. email them to my personal account

Once, I have completed my research I will give a formal presentation regarding the findings.

I do not work for any NGO or governmental agency. I am strictly a private researcher. Thats what happens when you live in the sticks of Montana.

I believe the SOX's rock! being we house the farm team it would stand to reason that I would support them. I was glad to hear you were able to remove that Sox's shirt of bad luck from your stadidum. I think they needed to say a bigger prayer as the superstition didn't hold true. I am a brett Farve fan and love the Vikings strickly because I like the colors of the team. I love the Twins! they rock and are a hoot to watch.

Your comments are greatly valued.

Request for a 'letter of recommendation to the Jerusalem Hug Foundation

Dear Ami Nahshon,

Last June 24th approximately 2000 people embraced the Old City of Jerusalem. They walked around the city walls, holding hands and expressing the unity of the Old City. Inhabitants of Jerusalem, Israeli and Palestinians, as well as peace activists from the entire world are standing side by side in their wish for peace and in their love for Jerusalem.

Since 2007 the Jerusalem Hug has been organized, as a collaboration between the ‘Lovers of Jerusalem’, the ‘Jerusalem Peacemakers’ and a Dutch group of light workers coming from Amsterdam.
The ‘Lovers of Jerusalem’ are a group of people from several peace movement organisations in Israel, under direction by Dvora Pearlman, established to create peace in Jerusalem.
The ‘Jerusalem Peacemakers’ consists of a group of passionate and involved Jewish and Palestinian inhabitants of Jerusalem under direction of Eliyahu McLean and Ibrahim Abu el Hawa who form an international network on inter religious bases with the aim to create peace and unity in Jerusalem. “When real peace in the holy land will be realized, then it will be possible to engineer peace in the whole world.”
In Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Rob Schrama, artist and peace activist, supports the ‘Jerusalem Hug’ together with a small team of involved and passionate fellow workers.

Together we established the ‘Jerusalem Hug Foundation’ that will be involved to get international support.

On May 21 2007 and on June 24 2008 the Big Hug of Jerusalem took place for the first and second time. Both Jerusalem Hugs were visited by more than 2000 participants, inhabitants of Jerusalem, Palestinians and Israeli, as well as peace activists from Israel and from all over the world.

On June 21 2009 a new Jerusalem Hug will be realized. The aim of the Jerusalem Hug is to promote a peaceful experience of freedom and joy to all people. The Jerusalem Hug will focus on love, respect and unity. With this attitude the participants will spread out around the walls of the Old City holding hands, singing and praying for peace and respect for all humankind.

Drumming together is an returning activity in every Jerusalem Hug, connecting the different population groups. During the first Jerusalem Hug in 2007 Palestinian and Israeli drummers from Jerusalem played together. As a result of this experience they decided to continue playing together. Several times they played together at the Damascus Gate to stimulate the rhythm of peace in the hearts of the people.

During the coming Jerusalem Hug, the Palestine and Israeli drummers will get support from internationally famous drummers. GrandMotherDrum, coming from Alaska and Cesar Zuiderwijk, drummer in the rock band ‘Golden Earring’ will invite all drummers in Jerusalem to create together a concert in the park along the north site of the wall.

The Jerusalem school kids, at least one class of Palestinians and one class of Israeli children are coming together during the Jerusalem Hug to fly their Kites for Peace above the thousands of participants. They will express that the children of Jerusalem want to live in a city were peace, freedom and tolerance are the foundation of our coexisting.

The ‘Jerusalem Hug’ stands symbol for another way to achieve peace. Everywhere the belief in a political solution of the Middle East conflict has been gone down to point zero. There ought to be found another way and that is the way of the heart. We believe that when we find peace in ourselves and when we are able to forgive, world peace will come closer.
The Jerusalem Hug gives expression to this wish for change as a concrete statement. Jerusalem stands as a symbol for peace and forgiveness in the world. Let Jerusalem be a city of connection, the heart of the world where unity and peace will be a fact. Every year, we will increase the Jerusalem Hug to a lager event, with every year more and more participants. Let the ‘Jerusalem Hug’ fill Jerusalem completely with love, so there will not be place for hatred anymore.

We request you to send a letter of recommendation to the Jerusalem Hug Foundation, a supporting letter that we can send to the funds we are approaching for financing our event. The best way to send this letter before December 24 to the “Jerusalem Hug Foundation” Krom Boomsloot 16, 1011 GW Amsterdam, The Netherlands or email it to:

We thank you for your cooperation and we hope to hold hands with you during the coming Jerusalem Hug.

Adon Nahshon,

I was pleasantly surprised to see you had a mepeace profile. I recognized your name on the invitation to the benefit dinner in New York. I have always been highly fond of The Abraham Fund and I actually will be able to attend the dinner this year with my parents and issue a little support. I hope this coming year is a highly successful one for the initiatives!
