How can we make a positive contribution to the peace process?

It is hard to sit back and watch the Israeli Palestinian conflict go on and feel like there is no real way to make a positive contribution towards peace. There are many way to get involved, whether it is becoming an activist, forming a dialogue group or researching ideas for peace.

One area which we tend to forget about is the economic component to the conflict. The poverty and widespread unemployment in the region exacerbates an already contentious issue. Understanding that economic… Continue

The Color Red by Barbara Kingsolver

I did not write this article, but came upon it. It touched me, and I felt it was appropriate to share here.

"Red is my color," I used to say. Just because I liked it best, I owned it. How many other things have I claimed as mine so easily? Whistling and sunshine, life and liberty. Things that can be lost. For most of us, life presents itself as a steady progress toward owning more, but having less. Vision, acuity, even walking—one bad fall taught me that was only a gift on… Continue

She's Israeli, he's an Arab. War has made them like mother and son ...

It is a friendship as remarkable as it is unlikely: Robi Damelin is a 65-year-old Jewish grandmother whose son, David, served in the Israeli army; Ali Abu Awwad, 37, is a former Palestinian revolutionary who joined the first intifada as a teenager and was later sentenced to 10 years in an Israeli prison – he served four. David Damelin was killed by a Palestinian sniper seven years ago; two years before that, Awwad's brother, Youssef, 32, was… Continue

Iran Uprising - The Truth Will Prevail

Iran Uprising The Iranian post-election dispute has been raging with hundreds of thousands of protesters marching and shouting from the rooftops demanding justice. Citing fraud, people refuse to accept the legitimacy of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s electoral victory last Friday. I recognize the passion and resolve playing out in the streets. Five years ago, I hosted a satellite… Continue

… I am looking forward to the day when we can all sit together on the desert sands there in Gaza, in Palestine, in all of the present disputed territories and: Light the counsel fires,

Sit in counsel together,

Break bread together,

Talk the “talk-of-the-ages”,

Sing the “songs-of-the-ages”,

Play our heart's and soul's music together and;

Dance the “dance-of-life” as true spiritual brothers and sisters.

And… Continue

Netanyahu Can't Dance At Two Weddings.

My latest from Al Jazeera.

Last March, my older brother and I traveled to the West Bank. At some point we entered the settlement of Ariel. Overwhelmed by its size and maze-like streets, we managed to get lost in what can only be described as a little city. As we tried to leave, we found ourselves going in circles. In a moment of slight frustration, my brother, who was driving, turned to me and… Continue
