Linking Jews and Muslims with groups in Israel/Palestine to support the peacemakers


Thanks for the note today. For the last eight years i have been part of a number of interfaith groups with my special focus on Jewish Muslim dialogue. We are in the process of deepening the dialogue between members of Temple B'nai Torah, a reform congregation and IMAN a Muslim Shiite community. Twenty Jews and Muslims will be meeting for the 2nd time amidst the Gazan Israeli crisis.

My strategy is to:

1. To demonstrate to our Muslim friends that there are Jews both here in Seattle and in Israel that want a peace with dignity for all.

2. Link up with Groups such as your and Gershon Baskins group to support your efforts. I have not had any success in getting a response from anyone in his group.

I believe the asynchronous exchange of notes between hundreds of people is a positive first step. However it is also important to establish "Synchronous" points so that we can do specific things in concert.

Please let us know how groups like my own can promote your efforts to bring attention to what needs to be done.

What is the relationship between your group and Gershon's group? Please pass this note to him.

ואני לשאת את כל הרגשות של חרטה על מה שקרה בעזה רוצה המשך החיים כאחד, ואנו רוצים את האנשים של המזרח התיכון בתחילת כללי כנס ו של דו קיום ואת הדיאלוג בין הדתות ואת הגזעים במזרח התיכון (ירדן, פלשתין, ישראל. סוריה, לבנון) ויש לנו רעיון זה היה לי אחרי המלחמה בעזה בגלל שאנחנו רוצים לחיות ואת הילדים שלנו גרים רחוק המלחמה רוצה שלום בין ערביי ישראל ואני רוצה להיות צעירים מי להתחיל דו קיום זה, כי העתיד שלנו ולא של מיושן ו לאחור רעיונות ריאקציונר
אנחנו רוצים שלום במזרח התיכון ועל דו קיום בין העמים, לכן אני מקווה שאתה את זה advocates של האידיאולוגיה לא לקמץ רעיונות על דעתו ועל תמיכה וייעוץ והדרכה או בכל דרך שתוכל לעזור לי ב בעתיד כדי להשיג שלום בין הערבים לישראל על עתיד

And I bear all the feelings of regret on what happened in Gaza want the continuation of life as one and we want the people of the Middle East at the beginning of the General Conference and of the coexistence and dialogue between religions and races in the Middle East (Jordan, Palestine, Israel. Syria, Lebanon) and We have this idea I had after the war in Gaza because we want to live and our children live far from the war want peace between the Arabs and Israel and I want to be young people who start coexistence By this, because the future is ours and not for the outdated and backward ideas and reactionary
We want peace in the Middle East and coexistence between nations, therefore I hope that you are the advocates of this ideology that does not skimp on the ideas and opinion and the support and advice and guidance or in any way you can help me and in the future to achieve peace between the Arabs and Israel for the future
