Profile Information

My personal story:
I am an Icelandic citizen. My education: MA in International Law and Settlement of Dispute, BA in Social and Economic Development and diploma in Modern Studies.

I grew up in Iceland, lived five years in Sweden, one year in England, and one year in Costa Rica. I have had good life and I appreciate the privilege of growing up, and raise my kids in a safe and peaceful environment. In 2002 I decided to leave successful career in finances, go to university and gain professional skills for working on peace, stability and security. From 2008-2010 I was a project manager for refugee resettlement in Iceland (we received Palestinian refugees from Iraq). I have been involved in research of human trafficking and systematic torture, and I am currently working on a book in that respect.
Why I want peace:
The reason why I want peace is that violent conflict is deadly and destructive. It ruins the society´s infrastructure, peoples relations, culture, values and norms, and it causes large-scale loss of lives and human suffering.

To gain peace, it requires mutual trust and respect, good quality relationship and a will. The reason why I fight for peace is that I know how it is to live in a peaceful society - I know how it is to raise a child in a peaceful society - I know how important it is to live in a safe environment. My education and my relationship with people from conflict zones has taught me how important it is to contribute to others what I have - peace and security!
Interests and activities:
Communication, culture, morality, security, human rights, equality, justice, arts, literature, workout, good wine and exotic food
Something you didn't know about me:
I never give up what I have committed myself to - even though I don´t see the light at the end of the tunnel, I look for it, because it´s always there!
Favorite website:
How I found
Through a member
What I want to achieve here:
I want to expand my knowledge and get more contacts in the Middle East. I am fascinated by its history and culture. I hope I get some links who I can connect to, in order to better work towards peace and stability in the Middle East and worldwide.

The ‘Big Hug’ and the future of Jerusalem

The sting of all problems between Israeli and Palestinians lays in the Old City of Jerusalem. Her status has to be solved in such a way, that all parties fighting for control over her can agree upon.

On June 24, the ‘Big Hug’ will be hold in Jerusalem. Light workers from Israel, Palestine and from all over the world, ‘Lovers of Jerusalem’, will come together to bring warmth and energy to this city, embracing holding hands the Old City. If we bundle all our positive energies and bring these to Jerusalem, we can create peace to this exceptional place.

We are organizing the Big Hug to make the people aware –especially the Israeli and Palestinian inhabitants of Jerusalem- that there is a very shaped perspective for the city of Jerusalem as a city of peace: a new, undivided Jerusalem, as the capital of Palestine, Israel and at large.

Let go of the conflict concerning her command and dedicate the city to the Omnipresent. The Old City as a whole is His Temple. To give the walled Old City free to God, as a "Status Apart”, as an independent city, will be the most feasible way to come out the current impasse.

The Old City of Jerusalem must become an open city; a House of Prayer for all the Peoples. This perspective is written down in the Holy Books, this is the perspective we, as ‘Lovers of Jerusalem’ embrace as well as solution. But how many people does already notice this hopeful point of view?

What I saw in Jerusalem and also everywhere else where I meet Islamic and Jewish people is, that not so many persons really think about a future for Jerusalem. Most of the time, they stick with old ideas that the Old City of Jerusalem will always remain a part of Israel, or in opposite, that it will be absolutely a part of a new Palestinian state, as stolen land that has to be given back. With these visions, a future Jerusalem will be a divided city with an East Palestinian and West Israeli part, with barbed wire and checkpoints in between, like the situation of the city from 1948-1967. Or, coming closer to an agreement, people suggest -like proposed in the “Geneva Accord” in 2003- to make a complicated dividing of the Old City in a Israeli and Palestinian part. That will mean that the small alleys will be split by walls and barriers too. The idea that a future Jerusalem will become a divided city, is something that we have to prevent.

There are living about 250.000 Palestinian and 500.000 Israeli rather close together in one city. Do they want to make a separation of Jerusalem in parts or do they choose, deep in their hearts, for unity? So my best friends, it is our task to inform the whole city that there is an alternative for the Jerusalem of today.

All lovers of a united Jerusalem will come together to encircle and embrace the Old City of Jerusalem with love and devotion. We have to encourage all inhabitants of Jerusalem to join the coming Big Hug, with the idea of a New Jerusalem that might be realized with their support.
