There is no way to Peace…

August 9th · No Comments · Interfaith, Mideast

…Peace is the way. A good friend appends her email messages thus. Her sentiment seems no less appropriate today. In that spirit, some notable links that others recently have brought to my attention:

Palestinian-American writer Susan Abulhawa’s review of Jacob Nammar’s Born in Jerusalem, Born Palestinian:

A family history firmly rooted in Jerusalem’s soil

Also, her review of Miko Peled’s The General’s Son, Journey of an Israeli in Palestine:

Book reviewMiko Peled sets the record straight on Palestine’s dispossession 

Plus, thought-provoking Peled video:

And from his website:

This blog is dedicated to tearing down the separation wall and transforming the Israeli apartheid system into a secular democracy, where Israelis and Palestinians will live as equal citizens. As an Israeli that was raised on the Zionist ideal of a Jewish state, I know how hard it is for many Jews and Palestinians to let go of the dream of having a state that is exclusively “our own.”  The articles, the stories and the pictures in this blog are meant to make a single point: For the good of both nations, the Separation Wall must come down, the Israeli control over the lives of Palestinians must be defied so that a secular democracy where all Israelis and Palestinian live as equals be established in our shared homeland.

The State of Israel today is governed in a way that cannot be sustained…
