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.

Ho Howard!
I apologize for not getting back to you sooner! :)
Yes you are right-- I did move from Amherst to Boston (I transferred to go to school in Boston, since I needed to go to a school that had more structure-- I miss Amherst terribly though!).
I am currently living with my parents for the rest of the summer, and then I move back to Boston for school (I am finishing my bachelor's degree in social work).

And also, thank you for joining my group J-Street! :)

I hope that you are having a great summer! :)

Stephanie :)
