I really like what you wrote. Coexistence between us is very important. We should realize how similar we are and this realization may help us overcome our differences... I totally identify with the idea of "peace education". Education gives hope for a brighter future and opens our minds. On a more personal note, I'd like to say that I also love to enrich myself culturally...
Salaam from... Jerusalem too! Aimee
hellooo how r u ? wallah we miss you long time we dont see you and dont hear any thing from you < hope every thing is on and you are enjoing your time , still remember our visit to jordan hope we meet another time salam
I am sorry for not responding earlier. Yes, I did study with Professor Abu-Nimer, who was by far one of my favorite professors. Your story is also very interesting, I am interested in hearing more about your work in co-existence efforts.
Thank you very much dear Amal for your kind words and wishes,
I hope tp make a real progress for changing this area reallity towards peace.
It is not going to be easy... Nevertheless I will keep on doing what I did till now - find peace friends in the Gaza strip and having mutual projects with them.
I am quite in a shock right now but I wil recover and continue doing what my beleives tell me - that we are all entitled for good and happy life and that peace is possible - always possible !
With tears, Merav
Hi Amal, Thank you for your warm welcome.
I think its a good idea to open up a discussion about lessons learned, although I havent lived in South Africa for the past 9 years. I am more connected to what is happening here. I work for the Quartet (Russia, America, Europe and the United Nations). the main focus at the moment is intitutions and capacity building in the West Bank.
With best wishes,
hope to hear from you and specially about yourwork here
Just to let you know that me and Brigitta havn't forgotten about you. We are in the middle of the olive harvest as you know but hope to be able to invite you over to meet with the rest of the team here in Jerusalem. Oh, it was nice meeting you to. Despite the rain :)
Thank you, Amal, for your beautiful and inspiring reply on the "Imagining the Holy Land" discussion a few days ago. I think you captured in a few brief lines the essence of my own overly long statement there. I hope to hear more from you here, and to get to know you better.
