My parents say I was born with a crayon in my hand. Since day one I began my path as a self learned artist. I enjoy creating art with meaning. Many of my works are about peace and diversity. I grew up during the 60's & 70's in a very fast moving pace world. Where I viewed descrimination and how crewl people can be to one another without actually knowing why. This has lead me to my new path of creating peace & diversity useable products.
Why I want peace:
I'm tired of seeing people fight for no real reason. Humans are suppose to be a superior being but tend to act like animals when they don't have what they want. I don't understand why people just can't talk problems or issues out instead of killing innocent lives.
Interests and activities:
art, reading, music, internet, hiking, dreaming
Something you didn't know about me:

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.
I have been caught up in the whirlwind of life forgetting to slow down and experience the peacefulness which surrounds me. It is up to all of us to take the time and breath in the peace surrounding us so it may grow!
