Our latest Peace Café was our biggest yet! Seventy peacemakers - Palestinian, Israeli and International - interacted outdoors in productive conversations, a warm lunch, and a listening circle. Our discussions covered: What is "Occupation", "Peace", and "Zionism"? One state or two states? What about Israeli politics and Palestinian politics? What do I know about the other side? What is my personal story? What am I committed to doing for peace?
For a short video, recap and photos, visit the Peace Café's group: http://www.mepeace.org/group/peacecaf44.
Feedback we received included: "inspiring and helpful", "sharing together was great", "was easier to communicate than I thought", "the idea and the spirit behind it is blessed", and " will attend more meetings and will invite friends".
MEPEACE is committed to creating more events on the ground to support our growing community online, make real progress, and give people hope.
Thank you Hiba Hamzeh for organizing our Peace Café and to all who helped. And thanks to all who came, and to all who are supportive from afar. Let me know if would like to help with future events.
