Simultaneous Celebrations

With all the bittersweetness that all sides may feel, the day Gilad Shalit and the Palestinian prisoners went home was the first time I remember that Palestinians and Israelis shared the joy of reunion as a result of cooperation.

At the United Nations Today

Listening to Mahmoud Abbas and Benjamin Netanyahu at the United Nations today, I am overwhelmed by more than a glimmer of hope because I believe that if we can agree on the goals, we can achieve them together.

Both extend their hands in peace:

Abbas to the Israeli people - "We extend our hands to the Israeli government and the Israeli people for peace-making."

Netanyahu to the Palestinian people - "I extend my hand to the Palestinian people, with whom we seek a just and…

A prayer for songs of peace

Songs that quiet rage

Inspire to engage

Move to love from hate

Wipe away hurt from history's slate.

Yesterday's deeds lay out the board

Chances past

Evil cast

How long will their influence last?

Give, take share

Love hate care

Today we choose:

Win: win; Lose:lose.

We choose our moves today

Who's the enemy

With whom to play

Fight or flight?

Dear friend
"Vasudev kutukbkam" entire world is a family.This is the teaching of our indian culture and tradition.This is a wonderful site to to know our inner self and each other and can make a world a family.
We created countries, boundaries,religions,cast,race for any reason.But this the time to realize that we are one and naturally interconnected with each other which we can just realize by watching inhale and exhale of our breaths. The source is same without any discrimination of religion and boundaries, equally for all living life of universe .When we understand this simple thing then we must understand how our and other's life is equally important, valuable and respectable .
We should follow the nature's rule,God has given us a human life not for destruction but to look after the wellbeing of all living life so that peace and harmony can establish in this planet.
I shall be happy if we could be a friend with harmonious relationship.

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.
