So, my question really is, should we focus solely on peace education, when focusing on young people in conflict or potential…

Palestinians, Israelis Shape New Reality through Dialogue


Laura Shaz


“In general, people here consider meeting Israelis as kind of betrayal. I believed that any kind of contact or talking with Israelis was like betraying my country and ignoring the long history of suffering of my people,” said Faras, a Palestinian.

  • Global Witness announced that it had left the Kimberley Process, an international diamond regulatory group, because it refused to address links between diamonds, violence and tyranny. Even if these certification schemes manage to address problems at mines, in many cases, the materials must pass roadblocks and pay “taxes” that directly line the pockets of warlords.

Life on earth demands that we all follow a path. The adventure begins from the day we are born and lasts until the day we shed our physical form. We do not know the length and nature of journey. This is the mystery and challenge life offers each of us. What we have in common is that each of us must walk our own path despite what we might share with others. Regardless of our culture, social background, profession or religion, we are all pilgrims on a path of our own choosing.
