Profile Information

My personal story:
I grew up with immigrant grandparents from Greece in the US for a few years. I ended up an immigrant back in Europe myself! They went to the US to escape poverty; I escaped the US to live here in poverty--then gave up and went back home. It sucks being an immigrant, that's for sure..
Why I want peace:
Because of my own life experiences, I'm interested in knowing more about how people experience discrimination, forced displacement, adjusting to other cultures, or just hearing what it's like to be immigrants or minorities.
Interests and activities:
Reading, learning foreign languages, foreign films, biking, photography.
Something you didn't know about me:
Sometimes I can be funny :)
How I found
What I want to achieve here:
Learn more about conflict resolution and trust building.
Do you promise to respect others and our guidelines and not spam?

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.

I am writing to you just because I believe every body in this network is my friend. Even if we did never meet, I respect and value your support to peace in the Middle East.
For this reason, I am trying to build up a group of participants/volunteers in the Galilee, with a multi-national taste.
Please check out our program:

We would like more people to join us in Eilaboun for this summer!

If you think you might be interested, or even your friend/family member, please contact me.
