Bush in Israel

President Bush is in Israel, and I want to share a few thoughts about the visit. First, it is good that he is visiting. This visit may be overdue. It is welcomed. That is because the parties to this conflict require intervention. If they did not, there would be peace by now. The president of the United States is a powerful figure who can only help peacemaking along.



Did the president contribute to progress in this region? That remains to be determined. Clearly, the president used… Continue

The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns.

One year for the mepeace.org domain :-)

Today marks exactly a year since I registered mepeace.org. Thank you

for joining our community and contributing to our peacemaking. I will

write to you from time to time to keep you updated on our progress. I

am proud of what we have together accomplished. A year ago, I did not

know what exactly what I would do with this domain. Now I know! I want

to offer interaction, information and inspiration for peace.



On mepeace.org, we offer interaction on our comment… Continue

Jaffa Convention - Jews and Arabs in Israel

I participated yesterday in the third annual Jaffa Convention, which brings

together Jews and Arabs to discuss in a call to action: bringing

equality and justice to Israel's citizens. The event took place at the

Arab-Jewish Community center in Jaffa, a short stroll for me. I

basically rolled out of bed, walked along the ocean, and got there.



Among the dignitaries present at the convention: MK (Member of Knesset) Rabbi Michael Melchior, MK Isaac Hezog -… Continue

Happy Birthday mepeace community

The idea for our community was born exactly one year ago. How? I wanted

a community for peace activists so I invited my friends from varied

organizations to meet. We met over coffee in Tel Aviv, on the 24th of

December, 2006.



I typed a one page summary (email me to see it). The mission statement: “Create a community for activists to convene,

network and inspire each other regularly”. My friends decided this

would not work.



So I took the idea for our… Continue

Who we are!

I like the title "Who we are" because we contribute to peace by being who we are. We are a contribution to Middle East peace. So who are we?

Canada, Holland, Turkey, Spain, Germany, Jordan, Russia, Belgium,

Sweden, India, Costa Rica, Italy and France. People have tuned into us in more than 80 countries.

Recap of mepeace tour in America

our community on the web. I met also with Hashomer Hatzair, Habonim

Dror and UPZ (visit their groups on our site to learn about them). We

At Annapolis!

I went Annapolis today rallying for peace! This was part of my US tour promoting mepeace.org. It is reassuring to see people supporting peace in the United States.



Some of today's sights and sounds: Activists who came from Washington and New York to rally for peace. Neturei Karta Jews screaming for no state. Orthodox Jews yelling at the Neturei Karta. Annapolis police and security and Navy personel securing the Naval Academy. Americans… Continue

Full negotiations are on!

Negotiations are agreed! And, the greatest accomplishment of all: all topics will be covered, saving nothing for second-stage final status talks in an indefinite future (the real failing of Camp David, Oslo, etc.), including right of return, final borders, and a comprehensive settlement with other Arab countries like Syria. The deadline? The end of 2008 (read: the end of Bush’s presidency). From…

Russian street relates to the peace process between Palestine and Israel

mepeace in America, and around the world!

Two days ago I arrived in the US to visit family and advance mepeace.org. Productive meetings open new avenues and help me realize the universality of our quest of peace. Looking forward, we stop to take a breath and appreciate that we have touched and been touched by peacemakers in more than 70 countries (colored in the image above).
