One of my favorite quotes is: "The past is history, the future is mystery, the present is a gift - that's why we call it the present".

Today, both Israel's Independence and the Palestinian Nakba are being commemorated. This is a reminder of the complexity of our past. Let's demystify our future by realizing peace in the present.

We are presently transforming to realize the potential of our peacemakers.

Please join our volunteers to help our transformation: Your financial support is welcomed at:

A few days ago I attend a conference on the subject of genocide. It was entitled "Remember, Reflect, Respond". There were survivors of the Jewish Holocaust, the Cambodian Genocide, the Rwandan Genocide, and the granddaughter of a survivor of the Armenian Genocide all speaking about their experiences. As people recounted their stories of atrocities and emphasized the importance and need to acknowledge, remember and condemn perpetrators, it became more evident to me that the past is not just "history" as this quote suggests. The past is still very real as it is an integral part of the identity of those who have suffered from atrocities (nobody knows this better than Israelis) or perpetration and any denial of that suffering only prolongs it and perpetrates suffering.

That is why I think it's important to name crimes against humanity for what they are, rather than sweep them under the rug of history... In this way, history can be used as the basis for just and sustainable peace. The fact that Israel's independence was achieved at the expense of the Nakba and that roughly 4.5 million Palestinian refugees today still cannot return to their homeland as a result is an ongoing atrocity (along with the crimes of occupation) that must also be recognized in order to get to the point where we can enjoy the present "gift".

Thank you, Eyal, for allowing us this forum for discussion on these important matters.

Dear Eyal and team,

I am glad, that your organization realizes necessity of its transformation. Allow me to state one specific proposal.

I see the best way of transformation your remarkable, basically the youth, peace-making organization, uniting more than 3 thousand Palestinians and Jews in Israel on the basis of a scientific principle: “Peace Comes from Harmony”. I suggest to recognize the basic motto: “My Peace through Harmonious Education" or " My Peace through Harmony” as harmony in an equal measure is acceptable and in the higher measure is necessary to Israelis and Palestinians to stop 60-year-old war which end is not visible.

But for this purpose it is necessary to master scientific knowledge to be able to build a harmonious society on either side of border. Therefore, harmonious education for both people becomes the main tool of peace. Therefore, the most effective possibility “to leverage technology for peace” in is to become the most active conductor of harmonious integral education in which our Global Harmony Association (GHA) can render you the invaluable help.

GHA created the projects of the World/National Academy of Harmony/Peace (, which needs $3 million as a minimum for one year; Youth Academy of Harmony (, which needs $50-100 thousand as a minimum for 2-4 weeks; and Family Academy of Harmony for the Higher Success (FAHHS) in business, power and science which is paid by clients: parents of students or students. These Academies have not only peace-making but also commercial result.

Peace in itself is out of commerce and harmony can be a source of billions in the most different spheres and branches. Some commercial projects of global harmony are published in our book “Harmonious Civilization” ( cat=ru_c&key=405) and you can get acquainted with them. Now we have started to discuss the new project: FAHHS. For participation in it we invite young people (up to 35 age) with the higher humanitarian education.

In this project we underlined especially effective peace-making character of harmonious education: these Academies “It will be prepare the new experts and also professional peacemakers from the harmony, capable to create peace from harmony and to earn money from harmony and for harmony. The youth which has been cultivated in harmony, will be cultivated inevitably and in peace because the peace reason is harmony, because the peace comes from harmony that is wrote on the GHA emblem: “Peace Comes from Harmony”. It is one, universal principle for all. Creating harmony in a family you establish peace in it, excluding from it the reasons of quarrels and divorces. Creating harmony in village or city you establish peace in them, excluding from them the enmity reasons. Creating harmony in the country you establish peace in it, excluding from it the reasons of civil wars and armed conflicts. Creating harmony between the regions or world countries, you establish peace in them, excluding from them the reasons of local or world wars. Harmony Academies at family, national and global levels learn HOW to create harmony at each level and HOW to establish peace on each of them and HOW to earn money from harmony and for harmony. Therefore harmonious education both in a family, and in a society has double result: peace-making and commercial, stimulating peace-making.”

I invite you to discussion of the different projects of Academies of Harmony, in particular the last project of Family Academy of Harmony, together with Youth GHA which president is the young Ph.D. from the USA Dominica McBride (email: I will be glad to send you this project if you accept our invitation to discuss and participate in it.

Harmony wishes,

Dr. Leo Semashko,
GHA President, member.

Thank you Eyal, for all you do to bring peace with! We all have some way in which we can contribute to the peace process. You help by bringing us together! I continue to express my desire for peace through music and am pleased to announce that my children's peace opera, designed to model peaceful coexistence between Palestinians and Israelis, is nearly complete and will be premiered early next year. Let us all strengthen each other in our common desire for peace.

ASHES TO ASHES, DUST TO DUST as God's message.
God is trying to say something to the people of the world, not only to the Polish Nation. But on the base of the recent events which happened to Pols (according to the statistics: 95.4% of Polish population is baptised into Catholic Church, there is 36,835,000 baptised Catholics, believers).

On the day of their arrival God spread a veil over the whole area. Mist in Smolensk prevented them from safe landing.
New International Version (©1984) Matthew 24:29
"Immediately after the distress of those days "'the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.'
Now ashes from the Iceland volcano,
New International Version (©1984)
When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss.
New International Version (©1984) Revelation 8:127
The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.
prevented some representatives to attend another burial.

Many leaders are banned from coming. But the Russian's representative is not.
Perhaps God wants them two, and rest of the world to talk, rethink the past, reconcile and apply the first command of God:
New International Version (©1984) James 2:8
If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, "Love your neighbour as yourself," you are doing right.
New International Version (©1984) Galatians 6:2
Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

Those responsible for Katyn's crimes are left few like Nazis are few left to be persecuted for the WW II crimes.
Some trying to hold present Russian and German governments responsible for WWII crimes. That is wrong and irresponsible. Let past be the past.

New can not be created by dragging old to the present.
The kingdom of God is created not by dragging the old to the present.
Present is a very precious moment.
Do not loose the moment.
New International Version (©1984) Revelation 21:5
"I am making everything new!" Then he said,
"Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."
Ezekiel 18:31
Rid yourselves of all the offences you have committed, and get a new heart and a new spirit.
Acts 17: 22-31
22 “Men of the World, I observe that you are very religious in all respects. 23 “For while I was passing through and examining the objects of your worship, I also found an altar with this inscription, ‘TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.’ Therefore what you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you. 24 “The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; 25 nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; 26 and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, 27 that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; 28 for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’ 29 “Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man. 30 “Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent, 31 because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.”
