Profile Information

My personal story:
i attended the first peace camp in the U.S when i was 15. it was my first time i travel by myself and meet people from all over the world. i met people from different conflicting regions in the world. we lived together in the middle of the woods for a whole month. at the begining there were people who couldnt stand the other side because of the negative opinions they had about each other. but after a whole month of co-existance, living together, crying together, laughing and sharing same rooms and activities; they learned to be one family. people from both sides of the border forgot their conflicts and hatred, all they remembered was that they are HUMAN BEINGS who have FEELINGS.
i returned from camp another person, i felt responsibility towards my people...and others...because i am a palestinian who lives in israel (or as some call us Arab Israelis), i felt that i can be like a bridge connecting israelis and palestinians with each other towards a brighter future with more and more tolerance and understanding.
Why I want peace:
because i saw that even GREATEST enemies can go hand in hand together if they only got the chance to do so!
Interests and activities:
languages translation, social activities, sports (especially athletics and swimming), writing poetry, drawing, and being active 24 hours a day :)
Something you didn't know about me:
i was the 1st Palestinian Arab peace activist to get a full scholarship to the American International School in Israel
How I found
a good friend of mine told me about it
What I want to achieve here:
i would like to feel that there is still hope in the region for peace, because i am sick of the bloodshed, and i am sick of politicians who run our lives here as if we were their own puppets. i would like to get to know people, share thoughts and try to help in building a more open-minded generation

fascinating, i like the description.

i am actually a Film/Middle East History student working on my latest documentary movie which is about coexistence in the Holy Land.

This summer, I will be in Israel/Palestine conducting some interviews of Jews and Arabs who are sharing their opinions. my aim is to show that both sides share common humanity and interest in peace. the film is going to be shown around colleges, mosques, synagogues, churches, in the USA! would you be interested to share your experiences/opinions? let me know and we can talk further in email.

Hi there Amani. Thanks for replying to my questions in the discussion. Do you work in translation or know people who do? A friend and I are looking at getting a book translated into Arabic but there doesn't seem to be anything in the UK. If you have any ideas we would be grateful. No worries if you haven't. All the best, Max.
