A message from Noa at the onset of her Spanish tour, Feb, 2009

Dear friends,


In the spirit of freedom and democracy i support the right of people to demonstrate wherever is legally possible. i also support the right of non Spanish or non catholic minorities to live in Spain enjoying equal rights. i have always expected the same attitude from the Arabs and Muslims towards the Jewish people and its right to live in freedom, security and self expression in Israel since it was founded and recognized, and anywhere else for that matter..

Unfortunately this has not been the case until this very day. We in Israel are still struggling to make it happen. We are praying for this day to come soon. We hold out our hand in peace to anybody who will listen, to people like the great president Saadat of Egypt who paid with his life for this! And to the venerable late king Hussein of Jordan. We ceaselessly continue the dialog with the brave leadership of the PLO headed by Abu Mazen.

The Waste of human life is heartbreaking.

I believe that violence is a primitive substitute for dialog, sharing and reconciliation. These beautiful human values can materialize via communication based on empathy for all human beings. We should all stay away from justice based on religion, self righteousness, national extremism, racism, and anti-Semitism. Justice that is not a prologue for reconciliation is a license to kill. We hold true that actions may be tragic, but sinister intensions especially those wearing a cloak of freedom and democracy are very dangerous.

One last point, to my Spanish friends:

The Spanish nation who has a great mind and a great heart has had its share of oppression and fascism.. Your sensitivity for the sorrows of other people is admirable. i wish all people will be as involved in the horrors of the world between and within nations in all continents. I also urge you to lift your spirit above your own traumas so that you do not, by mistake, judge other struggles automatically as similar cases to your own experience. In the same way i call for trusting my Palestinian and Arab brothers whenever they declare peace and not war, in spite of the Jewish endless traumas since the Spanish inquisition and through the Holocaust.

wishing us all peace.

noa
