Hi Hagay ... I was not able to post this in response to your email but here it is:
Thanks Hagay ... I am proud to support what you are doing to bring our people together for the right reasons, to discuss peace,not blame each other, to say good things about each other and to work to change our own people to do the right thing, and to look forwards not backwards at the distance past. We do not forget history but together we need not argue our different views of history. We can each value our own history but not shove it in the face of each other.
We need to work to show support and bring people to the point where they put their emotions and fears in check, and instead using their intelligence, speak with compassion and understanding and with one vision of one goal that we already know can be the future.
thanks so much
PS ... my problems as a Palestinian have more to do with fanatics among my community (like KabobFest and Electronic Intifada) who use arson to destroy peace and keep us apart and intimidate those who seek to push them back in to irrelevancy where the extremists belong.
