I have always worked with vulnerable and disadvantaged peoples who lives have mainly been affected not only through drought, famine, persecution, injustice and inequality but mainly through the effects of war (religious or civil).
Why I want peace:
Life is too precious for the many ulnerable young people in our world today. We have to protect the future generations through education, investment in services and supports, peace and harmony. We may not always agree with others but we have to learn to accept their point of view as equal to our own to move forward.
Interests and activities:
Diverse peoples are my main interest coupled with academic research around the origins of that diversity. I enjoy the simple rural life that I lead with my extended family and enjoy travelling to other countries to learn about other cultures.

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.
