first I'd like to than rose for the beautiful logo.

the idea for this group sprung to my mind after I receive a message from Mohamad sh.

he wrote:

Dear everyone,

As you all see my list, i have a 120 friends, part of them palestinian, others from israel and also some from other arab countries and others like USA , EU, and more, i would like to ask a sensitive question to my friends from israel, and also other are welcome to answer it: everyone of us here talking peace, and about peace, and sounds for me life on this is is so great and lovely, seems no hatred and racism, no occupation and war, from big part of the comments i read mostly we say: we want peace, and here is my question: WHEN WE SAY PEACE, WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THIS NICE WORD, WHAT KIND OF PEACE WE WANT, WHERE COULD BE OUR LIMITES, BORDERS AND WHAT CAN WE GIVE TO MAKE PEACE REAL, LOTS OF QUESTIONS THAT FOR SURE NEED A DEEP THINKING TO SATISFY OUR NEEDS.
THANKS

So I answered:

That a really good question. I thank you for it, Mohamad. Peace means a great deal of different things to many people. It is a very personal question. I can tell you about the first things that come to my mind when I close my eyes and think of peace. I see no more wars. I see a time when my grandchildren don't have to spend 3 years of their lives in the army. I see equality and respect between peoples and nations. I see my Arab friends come to visit me at home, I see us going to the beach together. I see myself hanging out with my Lebanese friends in Beirut. But most of all, I see myself being able to get in the car with my dad (who is 87 years old) and 2 sons, and drive to Baghdad, Iraq, through Jordan or Syria. In Baghdad he takes us to the house he was born in, and to all the places he told us so many stories about. There, we close a circle.
These dreams might sound trivial to many, but these simple acts have been denied of so many people in the Middle East.

What would I give for REAL peace? Almost everything.


Then I thought, why limit it to Mohamad's friends. It's an important question. Why not open it up for everybody in iPeace?

Last summer I attended a lecture by Arun Gandhi (grandson of Mahatma Gandhi) & Mairead Corrigan Maguire (Nobel Peace Prize winner) in the Scottish Parliament, here in the historic & beautiful city of Edinburgh.

Mairead spoke of nurturing & cultivating love & peace within yourself, and then sharing it. Arun quoted his Grandfather who spoke of the seed of peace. If this seed is kept in a box it will wither & die. However, if the seed is exposed to the elements it will grow & flourish!

The message is clear, share your peace & let it grow & flourish.

And, with this in mind, please embrace the philosophy behind this movement and share your passion for peace by reaching out and inviting your friends.

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen {doth gather} her brood under {her} wings, and ye would not!
Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until {the time} come when ye shall say, Blessed {is} he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Jerusalem Peace, love
