Profile Information

My personal story:
I am pursuing a research degree on Sufi practice among Jews and Muslims in Israel and asking if this makes a difference in how the 'other' is seen.
Why I want peace:
Because I believe that the well-being of the community is about the well-being of the individual and vice-versa. Human beings have enormous creative potential for allowing a society that flourishes and cares but that cannot happen as long as the ego is allowed to dictate.
Interests and activities:
I enjoy writing on my blog when I find time. At the moment I am so busy working on my thesis that I don't find time for much else except conferences. One of my main interests is mysticism in the Abrahamic traditions. I am on the Sufi path myself so my interest is both practical and academic. I like to read and walk and to be by the sea. I also write poetry and fiction and I love Andalucia. I am active in the Centre of Religions for Reconciliation and Peace at the University of Winchester and I am connected to St. Ethelburga's Centre for Reconciliation and Peace through my PhD studentship.
Something you didn't know about me:
Favorite website:
How I found

What I want to achieve here:
I am interested in reading the articles and keeping in touch with all initiatives for peace and justice in Israel and Palestine

Sufism in Israel

Posted on June 4, 2016 at 11:25am 0 Comments

LiveEncounters, the online magazine of Village Earth, has just published my article on the practice of Sufism by Jews and Muslims in Israel. Visit the page here:

This is based on my research in Israel.

“Derekh Avraham/Tariqat Ibrahimiyya, meaning ‘The Path of Abraham’ in Hebrew and Arabic respectively, was founded in the year 2000 by a few Jewish academics, a Rabbi, and a Muslim Sufi from…

For one, I posted today's discussion "You're A Nazi, You're A Nazi, You Spoke To A Muslim!:  How Deep The Hate Goes."  Would you like to participate in it?  Your feedback would be interesting.

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.
