Profile Information

My personal story:
I traveled to Israel on my birthright last summer and realized I wasn't dedicating enough of my energy and thoughts to achieving peace in the region. I am a graduate student at the Pratt Institute in New York- for my thesis I propose to create a Design-Centric Campaign to Rebrand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. My goal is to promote a more tangible air of peace both in the region and to outsiders looking in.
Why I want peace:
Peace is finally a potential resolution. It is a matter of compromise that I hope these two groups are willing to make. No more people should die.
Interests and activities:
surfing, skiing, basketball, all sports really, graphic design, music, guitar, the city and the mountains
Something you didn't know about me:
I can juggle like nobody's business
How I found mepeace.org:
networking
What I want to achieve here:
meeting like-minded people and making connections to hone my thesis.
Do you promise to respect others and our guidelines and not spam?

Very cool. I think I am doing my thesis on the change in perception of the other side after dialogue through the internet- based on my own experiences my hypothesis is that a person's world view or opinions don't change (if they started off right wing, they will remain right wing) but that they deepen their understanding of the other.
If you need any help with cultural understanding, conflict theory etc. of either side, it is what I good at. Keep us updated.

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.
