Profile Information

My personal story:
I am a Political Scientist in Israel on a Fulbright Research Grant. My project is entitled “Peace or Profits: Understanding Israeli-Palestinian Economic Cooperation.” I am interested in the perceived and realized costs and benefits to economic cooperation and/or non-cooperation.
This includes an assessment of economic, political, social, and other incentives and disincentives that shape business decisions and also the outcome of those
decisions (e.g., profits & losses). I would love to hear from anyone who experiences, feedback, etc. on these issues.
Why I want peace:
I cannot imagine wanting anything else.
Interests and activities:
Yoga, reading, travel, my boxer dog
Something you didn't know about me:
I don't think many people here will know anything about me.
Favorite website:
http://don't have one
How I found
IPSCRI's Gershon Baskin's Facebook posting
What I want to achieve here:
Learn more about women's experiences in the region.

Dear Katherine,


As for women, their are so very many splendid women who have led me to understand the parameters of the conflict and the path forward towards a real solution. Here in the US it's Leah Green, the Director of the Compassionate Listeing Project that will be taking a new delegation to Israel/Palestine in a few weeks, (something like her 25th). In Israel Gila Svirsky taught me more than I can remember when she was head of Bat Shalom. She went on to manager the Coalition of Womens Orgs for Peace. Lucy Neiusebeh runs MEND and is doing remarkable work. We just had a visit here in the states from three young women from Creativity for Peace along with their Director here Dottie Indyke. You should meet Anael Harpaz ,the Israeli director and some of the young Palestinian and Israeli leaders up above the Galilee. At some point you'll want to meet my friend Sheikh Ghassan Manasra, a wonderful brilliant scholar, Fullbright fellow and Sufi leader in Jerusalem and Nazareth. That's more than enough from me. Shalom-Salaam-Peace, Larry

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.
