In 1970 my dad Salam living under the Israelis occupation published an article in the newspaper without censorship approval, got arrested the next day, ends up in Ber Shiva prison for the next 7yrs (in the Desert) the worst jail in Israel at the time.. he sent us letters weekly telling us Gandhi stories, for me it was (peace crab) I did not understand at that time....(do not hate love is the answer and so on.).I was full of anger and hate i didn't know what to make out of it ...not until my… Continue

Thanks Nidal! Marhaba! I will look for the book and as soon as i have it, I comment it to you. Yes, the more we can learn about this process from hate to love and from anger to peace, the more, I think, we will be of service to us and the world. Besos

Hi NIdal. Thank you for your words in the Gandhi group! I really would love to read the book you recommend me . Can you give me the author and name again, and I may try to find it here, or what we can do? I send you my love

To Nidal Khalili,
I left you this comment on the World March page:

Thank you for your very moving comment.
To know that Peace is more powerful than Violence;
that Love is more powerful than Resentment;
that Forgiveness is more powerful than Bitterness;
that Openness is more powerful than Closedness;
that "even if [they] put us behind bars we still lions"...
THAT is our Strength.

I have asked to be your friend, but have been told that I've already exceeded the maximum of 50 friends requests on Ning. I don't want to retract any of those requests, because I am trying to use them to mobilise support for the World March.
However, if YOU request my friendship, this would be "permitted"... and I would be honoured to accept.

In Peace and Love,

Hi Nidal, I am so glad I found you here! Well... what can I tell you... I am delighted to hear a little more of your story... about you, your father, your makes me understand better the truth about "love your enemies". When you tell the story of the bird and the guard, I can see how we all are, deep inside, connected with Love. And how you father love for the bird... without any expectation, brought someone ... 'the enemy'... to touch his own capacity of love. Well, all this touches my heart and help me understand a little more...Thanks Nidall. Send you my love

Your story about your father's loving pacifism is inspirational in the face of institutionally mobilised hate. I encourage you to tell more of your father, family and life stories.

Most of us don't realise the institutional roles we play and therefore keep the hate or fear machines moving. Institutions divide, segregate and isolate all parties. As judges, jailers, consumers, workers and managers, earning and spending in this orchestrated game, we are aware of our own personal and family pains and joys but not of the fear game we are institutionally encouraged to play. work-at and appease with consumer spending on goods and services.

We spend to ease our pain but only end up more isolated in spending precious resources that could have brought us together with our fellow humans. Our greatest opportunities are to live in solidarity with each other, by living simply, considering all of humanity in our spending and encouraging dialogue with everyone including those who might injure us. As we live in solidarity, we as well lay foundations for our economic collaboration and hence the ability to recapture the collective we for everyone's participation and fulfillment.

Your father could see through isolating games and laid such a clear loving example of how to live; that we are all part of the solution everywhere.
