"Between the pain of those who are gone and the fear of those who may yet pay with their lives, we come together to say enough pain and enough war, and stress that peace is the only solution to stop the killing"(Muhannad Najjar, Combatants for Peace, Memorial Day Ceremony in 2014)
 

Nonviolence

"Nonviolence is the greatest force
at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier
than the mightiest weapon of destruction
devised by the ingenuity of man.
Destruction is not the law of the humans."

(M.K.Gandhi)

A Palestinian-Israeli partnership

"After all, he too is flesh and blood – just like you
Doesn’t believe anyone – he is just like you
And he can be your friend
If you extend your hand
A strange fellow, this enemy of yours – and he is also alone"

(Just Like You, Shalom Hanoch)

Ending the occupation

Image
"Teach as best you can, and perhaps
a generation will come that will do great wonders,
And do not burden the youth in your community
and cause them to despair,
For despair kills the young."

(Esh-Shawqiyyat, Ahmed Shawqi)
