Profile Information

My personal story:
originally from London, but i"ve been living in Israel for many years now, currently in tel aviv. I work in theater as an actor, and i'm also a screen writer.
Why I want peace:
The situation effects us all. I don't believe the country will be able to last much longer without some kind of an agreement.
Interests and activities:
mainly cinema, theatre and music. I listen to alot of music and play piano, guitar and alt saxophone.
How I found
through a friend
What I want to achieve here:
I'm personally interested in talking to people from both sides, hearing stories about what's happening around us, and creating some form of dialogue with people from the other side. I used to be involved in joint theater projects with palestinian actors and musicians in east jerusalem. Unfortunately since the war in gaza it's been harder and harder to cooperate. I'd like to be able to initiate and be part of more joint projects.

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.
