I am the daughter of a Jewish father and a Catholic mother. The TEACHINGS of Jesus (love God, love your neighbors, love your enemies, love all of creation) speak to my heart like no organized religion ever has. (Seriously, take another look at the Sermon on the Mount....amazing and timeless words from 2000 years ago.)
Perhaps from my interfaith heritage, the desire to build bridges of understanding and friendship between people of different backgrounds has been part of who I am since I can remember.
My parents both passed away while I was in my early 30s...way too early. As a way of honoring them, I have tried to work for peace in various ways.
The horrific injuries(physical,emotional and spiritual) being suffered by service people and civilians in war literally gave me nightmares. In order to devote my energy to something positive and uplifting, I founded a little company, http://www.peacetags.com that donates 100% net proceeds to non-profits healing the wounds of war and spreading peace.
Why I want peace:
I want peace because peace is about freedom! Freedom from fear and hatred and violence and war; and all those burdens that are poisonous to our souls and rob us of our connection to each other and God.
The symbol of peace falls in the land of peace
Will we give them the chance to bring down the symbol of peace in the land of peace?
Many people know this is a plot of land full of olive trees.
And many Israeli and Palestinian families make a living from these trees
Especially that so many Palestinian families do not have another source of living,
except these olive trees
Days before the start of the harvest, especially in the West Bank,
What happened was expected, the start was of some settlers groups fighting Palestinian families
and preventing them to enter to the olive harvest,
Then the settlers started shooting the Palestinians, and set fire in the trees
Finally, with the help of European, American, Israeli, and other people from all over the world,
Some Palestinian families succeeded to collect their olives.
So, I am the address to thank all those who helped these families and brought them happiness,
And say to the settlers: We will not let you bring down the symbol of peace
For the olive trees are the symbol of peace in the land of peace
A True Story By Faisal Al-Hatib
I am a Palestinian Arab from Hizmeh, a village between Jerusalem and Ramallah. When I was 15 years old I fought against the Israeli Occupation in search of freedom. At that time I thought every Jewish person, whether soldier or citizen, man or woman, young or old, should be killed. I rejected the right for any Jew to live and every Jew was a target. I was just a kid, believe me, and I didn’t understand anything about politics or the Arab-Israeli conflict. I was arrested and sat in jail for 12 years. This was during the first intifada from 1987. At that time nobody talked about peace but only of violence. I matured during my time in jail. I started studying and reading books on politics, literature, poetry, and about the Madrid Conference.
It gave me hope to live in peace and dignity. I learned that violence only breeds violence and that peace is the only solution for the two nations, the only way for both to have a respectful and beautiful future. We live on the same land. We are neighbors. We drink the same water and both pray to a monotheistic God. We must live in peace on the basis of religion for God and land for everyone.
