The human face of conflict. war, political threat, Intifada, struggle for the good life, women and their loved ones searching for the "good life" under war. Israel, the Israel Palestinian conflict.
I have become a fervent believer that peace can no longer be spread through political channels or leaders, but by means of individuals--by "we the people" to "you the people," by shared ideas, honest education, business partnerships, mutual economic growth, scientific research without borders, music and the arts-- and common personal goals. As human beings, we can no longer afford to wait for the next war to drop warning notes to civilians under fire. We need to organize an international movement of peace note-writers. We must drop messages of peace for our children to our neighbors, and prayers of friendship to our enemies under fire. Now. Peace must be brought about as an international people's movement--an uprising of goodwill on behalf of individuals across enemy lines.
Israela: secrets, lies, and alienation. Heroism. Arabs saving Jews and Jews healing Arabs in Israel. Israela: An eternal struggle for peace. Three women and their loved ones seeking the "good life" under war. The complex social structure of Israel, tradition, history, war, Intifada, and love.
