My personal story:
hi, my name is Rawan i am 29 years old, am working as a secretary with a Japanese agncy, i love working as a secretary even i had studied Social Work, i start been active in different activities since i was 16 years old, i faced manay blooks from m family & the society around me for being a very active female but i never gave up, i continue what i belived in and at that time it was simple dreams like Sport, culture activities , local workshop but even thow it wasnt easy.
after my family gave up and start feeling that i am may be a boy, i had the oppertunity to learn and meet as much as i can.
and now my family do understand what i do and some times they join me if they had the chance.
i love working with children and tenagers, now a days iam volunteering in Jericho library to work with student in workshops , also i like handcraft very much and each year i train around 70 adult from different asociations and with cooperation with ministry of Education and ministry of youth and sport ( paid training), i love children , i like food , i would love to meet new friends through mepeace.
Why I want peace:
i think peace is the first princple for living, and we all should work to reach, our mind need peace, our body, our heart, every operation inside us need peace and this is the same environment we need around us for us and the next generation, to feel love, friends, family, life, education , economic, development in different fields , nothing will exist with violence and if it exist it wont have the same feeling and same meening.
i want to start my day in the morning knowing that we are an independence country and have a friendly nighbours who accept us as we do.
i know it shouldnt be a speech but words are playing in my mind and life is short, may peace be upon all of us.

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.

סיפור אמיתי

אני פייסל חטיב, ערבי פלסטיני מהכפר חיזמה הנמצא בין ירושלים לרמאללה
גר וגדל בזרועותיו של המשפחה שלי כמוני, כמו כל הילדים של פלסטין היא לא המשחק שלנו או הכיכרות לשחק כמו ילדים אחרים בעולם היהודי ובעיקר הילדים שיחקו באותם ימים, שמיעת סיפורים על המולדת, פלסטין ואת הטבח ואת הפשעים שבוצעו על ידי הצבא הישראלי את זכותו של העם שלי, שאנחנו שומעים את הסיפורים האלה מהבתים שלנו בבתי קפה ברחובות
ותאמיני לי, אפילו השירים שלנו בחתונות היתה ההתנגדות לכיבוש
כשהייתי בגיל 15 נלחמתי נגד הכיבוש הישראלי
בשבל החופש הייתי חושיב כל אדם יהודי חייל או אזרח גבר או אישה קטן או גדול צריך לההרג
עד בא יום נסיתי לשלול לבן אדם את חיים שלו לא הייתי מכיר אתו היה בשביל יהודי וכל יהודי היא המטרה שלי להרוג
תאמינו לי הייתי רק ילד לא מבין כלום בפוליטיקה
או את הסכסוך הערבי הישראלי
בסוף נעצרתי לתקופה של 12 שנים
למדע כל זה קרה בשנת האינתיפאדה הראשונה 1987. באותו שלב. אף אחד לא מדבר על שלום
רק מדברים שני הצדדים רק על אלימות
התחלתי לגדול ואני בכלא התחלתי ללמוד לקרוא
ספרים על פוליטיקה. ספרות. שירה וסיפורים העולם
קרא על רג 'יב גנדי ומרטין לותר גנג ותאמין לי שהם נותנים לי תקווה הצטערתי לשמוע או לקרוא אותם לפני המעצר שלי, כי למדתי מהם חוויותיהם כי אלימות רק מולידה אלימות
וגם לקרוא על הדת היהודית ועל הנצרות וכמובן על דת האסלאם ועל ההיסטוריה הדתית של פלסטין
אנחנו בני אברהם, יצחק,
אנחנו חיים על האדמה, אחד הקדושים לנו יש את השפה שלנו ואת הקירבה לשפה עברית
השלום במדריד.
ועידת מדריד נתן לי תקווה החיים לחיות בשלןם
ובכבוד . למדתי כי אלימות תבי רק אלימות
והשלום הא הפתרון היחיד בין שני העמים למען עתיד יפה מכובד בין שני העמים
אנחנו חיים על אותה קרקע.אנחנו שכנים שותים מאותו המים מתפללים עבור אלוהים אחד
אנו צריכים לחיות בשלום על בסיס של הדת לאלוהים והאדמה לכלאם

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.
