I hope to meet others who believe in land for peace preceded by an admission and apology that in returning to our homeland we displaced the Palestinians culturally and geographically. Both peoples then need to curb demonization and delegitimization of each other and continue the quest to find a solution that is both mutually acceptable and advantageous.
Thank you Eyal Raviv, for your acceptance to the group, and creating this platform for connection and dialog. May we as a world, experience "the awesome fullness" of Creators peace and pleasure...soon, beginning in Jerusalem.
thanks for the warm welcome. I appreciate very much.
I entered the mepeace-platform for a specific purpose, and maybe you can help me or give me ideas how to proceed. I am in search of a Palestinian writer or filmmaker or someone good with words to join a shortfilm project "Jews And Arabs refuse to be enemies" - the film shall be 2 min, only online, non profit, for free, to support the peace-process.
Amir, a young Israeli from Tel Aviv, currently in Greece, started it only one week ago and asked me to take over the production and scriptwriting, as I am a professional film producer. I am from Berlin, Germany, and neither do I speak Hebrew nor Arabic, but I am engaged in Middle East Issues and produced cinema films about (like www.syria-inside.com).
Now, we both, Amir and me, don't want to do that without including a Palestinan, and thats where you might help us with this plattform. I understand it right that you are one of the founders? We want to distribute our 'Call for Coworker' below as fas as possible to as much as possible people who are interested in the peacekeeping process. So maybe someone here on this plattform is the right person, or knows a palestinian man or women who could be our third co-worker?
I leave it up to you to decide. The text is here:
******** Call ******************
WE SEARCH A PALESTINIAN WRITER OR FILMMAKER, young, old, man or women, not important,
- best someone in Gaza/West Bank or at least who has lived there and has connections there - to participate as co-author or co-producer in a small short-film production. Nothing big.
Main thing to do is help finish the script, discuss it with us and maybe help to find people on the ground willing to participate with a video-statement. If he/she is a filmmaker with a small cam, even better, but not necessary.
It is a NonProfit project, no money though, we just want to give our share to help stop the violence and open up a door for hope and understanding. Main Producer is professional filmmaker Jan from Berlin, a German, the initial idea came from Amir, a young israeli immigrant living in Greece now.
Script is half way finished, but we are only an Israeli and a German guy and don't want to continue without including a Palestinian brother or sister.
Film is about 2:30 min and will be produced in the spirit of non-violence, reconciliation and peacekeeping. Production will be in both, Arabic and Hebrew. Anyone? Please contact:firstname.lastname@example.org (this is the 'German one')
Thanks for sharing this message to all who want to contribute. It can be more than one person who takes part. As long as it happens quick and there is some internt access possible as we work online and share documents online.
Best to you,
is it possible to publish this here - and maybe you yourself have a good suggestions or person in mind.
Thanks for your time and hope all the best for the Peace Talks.
