Profile Information

My personal story:
I'm an American Jewish college student studying international studies focusing in the Middle East and religion. In the last year, I spent four months in Morocco and six in Israel. I am most interested in water issues in Israel/Palestine/Jordan and the possibility of using cooperation on water issues as a jumping-off point for cooperation on even more contentious political issues.
Why I want peace:
Who doesn't want peace? The only sustainable way of life is a peaceful one, and if Israelis and Palestinians both want to continue living in the Middle East and want to start living in a secure, not hostile environment, peace is the only way.
How I found mepeace.org:
J Street Conference
What I want to achieve here:
I hope to interact with and learn from people I wouldn't have the chance to meet without this site.
Do you promise to respect others and our guidelines and not spam?

A True Story By Faisal Al-kateep
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.
