Peace means to respect the otherside and to treat him as a human being .he will be free and peacefull to say what he want to say no threats are there for him and no fear what so ever form no one. Peace means simple life and way to practice daily activity smoothly. Peace is when you talk and being heard whether or not people will agree with you this is not the issue. Peace is not asking people to shut their mouths and or to say what you want them to say;showing or saying that we have a peacful relations among each other inorder to say that we are living in Peace. Peace doesn't limit my moves. Peace doen't prevent me from seeing my relatives and families. Peace is and Peace should be the best of everything in my life wheather talking - drawing - eating or demonestrating. If we will not agree on something that is not the end of the world; on the contarry that should show us that we should think more and make an effort to overcome these obsticals of thedisagreemnet.
nd they will still continue to treat them as not even 2nd class citizens but as third class ones. Having been involved with IPCRI (my son is founder and co director) for many years and having been in Israel/Palestine many, many times I have seen how the Israelis treat the Israeli Palestinians. They do not receive the same schooling or the same convienenses as the Isrealis get., even garbage collection is left uncollected very often. If they will finally have a state that they can call their own will they be able to live as a free people without the sword of Damacles hanging over their heads. No more check points and no more walls!!!!!
As long as there is mutual respect and empathy, difficult things can be said. Some of the difficult things I've heared from Palestinians have made a meaningful change in my life. With those who could also listen, I've become friends.
Don't know which side of Jerusalem you live in, but I thought I'd tell you about a seminar that my movement "Tarabut Hithabrut" is holding this Saturday in Jaffa, titled "Bi national state and social struggle."
