Waltz with Bashir

Seeing Ari Folman's prize-winning film, 'Waltz with Bashir,' is having an unexpected therapeutic effect, not only on soldiers who served in the first Lebanon war - the film's subject - but also on those who fought on the Egyptian front, in the intifada, or in the Second Lebanon War.

This is a long post, but interesting and worth reading. What triggered it is a discussion posted a… Continue

I cry with you Abu al-Aish

The deaths that opened the hearts of many Israelis.

So many deaths in this bloody war between Israel and Hamas have been in vain. If anything can be a consolation to Dr. Ezzeldeen Abu al-Aish at this unimaginable hard time, is the fact that the death of his 3 daughters opened a channel between Palestinian hearts to the mainstream Israeli hearts.

It happened last night, and the events were broadcasted live in prime… Continue

Petition - To the Israeli Government - Let the Gaza Children Out of the War Zone.

We appeal to the government of Israel to open the border-points with Gaza in order to allow for evacuation of children from the battle zone to a safe location, until they can be returned to their families with the cessation of hostilities.

Whether we agree or disagree with the aims of the present war, the fate of hundreds of thousands of endangered children is of utmost… Continue

There is just no other way!

Let me tell you a story. I went to visit my parents in Beer Sheva today. It takes about an hour to drive there. I got there at 12:45 pm. Said hi, kissed my parents and went to look what's cooking in my mom's pots.

Suddenly a siren started wailing. This has only one meaning for it these days for a million people in Israel. A missile is doing its way from Gaza in your direction. And you have to act fast.

My elderly parents… Continue

You may say I'm a dreamer. or what kind of iPeace we want.

I received a message from Stephanie:

If anyone is on our minds these days.....guess who it is.
Why don't you keep an online journal to let us know how YOU are doing.
We are all curious to know. You work miracles, keep us going and growing.
And you??

Why not? 85 messages in iPeace and same amount of emails can…

A note about unfairness,,,

There's a great deal of misunderstanding of the 100 years old Israeli Palestinian conflict. There's a great deal of disinformation about it in iPeace today. And there's a great deal of manipulation end exploitation of the situation, some of it very cynical.

Here's part of a message I and 45 others received yesterday:

"Israel is the attacker since centuries ago - Jews dont have a land and thats a fact. and they have made protocols and through them have prepared… Continue

On freedom of speech, emotionally driven personal attacks, and horror visuals.

iPeace prides itself on being a free space for sharing ideas, opinions and information.

But we have and uphold certain standards. We will not allow posting of explicit horror images of war. We don't need to see it to realize that war is horrific.

We understand also that emotions in these days are running high. But we will not tolerate personal attacks between members.

We ask you to help us in keeping the iPeace space civilized and report to… Continue

My iPeace Day

I case you were wondering how I am spending iPeace Day. I will drive now to Beer Sheva, my home town, to pick up my parents and bring them over to my house. My father is 87 and has difficulty walking, my mother is 78. There is just no possible way for them to get to a safe place in the 45 seconds which take a missle to get from Gaza to their house.

Since early this morning 5 Grad missiles fired by Hamas from Gaza hit my home town. One… Continue
