A common space for harmonic peacemakers
This Israeli lady is a true hero. I admire her courage and tenacity. To live in Israel, and talk as she does, requires a courage and fortitude that very few are aware of. She is more deserving of a Nobel Peace Prize than most of the real recipients.
However, there is one point she made that I do not agree with – the Muslim womb. It is true that Israelis fear they will be outnumbered by Arabs, and it is true Arabs have much larger families, but PALESTINIANS HAVE ALWAYS OUTNUMBERED JEWS, in every year, and at every historical point, provided you add in the refugees, who want to be back in their original villages. If you doubt me, check the population figures.
This is the very reason why Israel is so desperate to prevent Palestinian refugees from returning. The return of the refugees, combined with one democratic election would see the end to Israel as a predominantly Jewish country - Arabs would have control of the electoral process.
I mention these things because I know there will be no peace until these issues are resolved in a just and equitable manner. Meanwhile, everyone suffers - but mostly it is Palestinians, and their children, that are subjected to the suffering.
Please tell us what you think...
What a great and deeply awesome message! It could have been expressed today. -
