Dear Ms Shirley,

Consider that such pessimism shall be drowned out and the feelings shall be business as planned.

Hi Shirley,
Since you are pessimistic, this means that you have a great mind that understand the problem very well. I am pessimistic like you because I know how complicated the conflict between us. If you found someone optimistic and who was able to make you optimistic send him/her to me . Either I make him pessimistic or he makes me optimistic

regards for you, great pink looking rose !!!!!!!!!!

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.

An interrogatory ordeal

In the test of life
I was asked to identify
“A human-being” I said
I was asked about my faith
“a human-being”, I said
I was asked about my nationality
“A human-being”, I said
Surprisingly I failed the exam
I was given second chance
This time I read the questions carefully
But my answers were the same
Surprisingly, I failed again
Maybe I did not comprehend the questions
Maybe I did not answer the way
“A human-being” would

Hello Shirley,

I completely understand your pessimism. However, I am clear my purpose in this world is to be the voice of peace on behalf of all children and humanity.

I have traveled to Israel six time with Keren Kiyemet (not sure of of correct spelling, Jewish National Fund).

I experienced the hope of peace in 2004 in the eyes of the young Israelis and Jews on Ben Yehuda in Jeruslem in 2004-2005, only to see the resignation and tears with the loss of Yitzak Rabin.

However, I am committed to giving children the opportunity to create a new conversation for peace, and empowering them to declare the type of world they want a chance to grow up in.

The Kids International Peace Mural Exchange gives children the chance to find peace for themselves, families, communities and create their vision of peace for the world in a peace mural.

Please accept my invitation to be my friend and partner in making a difference for all children. I would also like you to join my group on this site: Where Peace Lives. It would be great for you to comment on my posting on that site: Saying something new.
