A woman told the cloud: cover my beloved
For my clothing is drenched with his blood.
If you are not rain, my love
Sated with fertility, be tree
If you are not tree, my love
Saturated with humidity, be stone
If you are not stone, my love
In the dream of the beloved woman, be moon
[So spoke a woman
Why I want peace:
Oh watchmen! Are you not weary
Of lying in wait for the light in our salt
And of the incandescence of the rose in our wound
Are you not weary, oh watchmen?
Interests and activities:
Greetings to the one who shares with me an attention to
The drunkenness of light, the light of the butterfly, in the
Blackness of this tunnel!
Something you didn't know about me:
My friends are always preparing a farewell feast for me
How I found mepeace.org:
What I want to achieve here:
Our cups of coffee. Birds green trees
In the blue shade, the sun gambols from one wall
To another like a gazelle
The water in the clouds has the unlimited shape of what is left to us
Of the sky. And other things of suspended memories
Reveal that this morning is powerful and splendid,
And that we are the guests of eternity
Do you promise to respect others and our guidelines and not spam?

I have just returned from a wonderful visit to Turkey. I hope for your full and complete recovery.
Are you in a position where we can meet?
I believe that in order to help prepare the ground for reconciliation we must be very aware of how our words and actions are heard and understood.
Images of maps that do not acknowledge the State of Israel are an educational experience as are Israeli maps that seem to show one state from the river to the sea.
The most critical issue is the recognition by the Arab world of the legitimate historical claim of the Jewish people to any of the land between the river and the sea.
We did not come here to take, we came to share
PS what is your connection to New Zealand? We have a daughter living there.
Hello Bint Yassin
Nice to know you too. I'm not sure you're interested in INNER PEACE. If so, please check more of my work for peace at www.peacerevolution2010.org in case you wanna join. You may have a chance to get fellowship for a conference in Thailand next year. Let's collaborate!
A True Story By Faisal Al-katib
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.
