“It never happens,” Shaul Judelman, a founder and director at Roots, says. “Nowhere in the West Bank do Israeli pre-teens and young teenagers from settlements meet Palestinian kids from nearby towns and villages. They live in two different, absurdly parallel worlds.”

“About 1,000 women rode the train from Tel Aviv to Beit Shean on Thursday and then held a rally in the northern Israeli town as part of a campaign to jumpstart the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.
The demonstration was organized by נשים עושות שלום - نساء يصنعن السلام - Women Wage Peace, a non-partisan women’s movement founded in 2014 in the aftermath of that year's Gaza war.” ... See MoreSee Less

“‘The average Jewish-Israeli Zionist doesn’t really understand Palestinian national identity. We have many misconceptions, as do Palestinians about us: they don’t view Judaism or Zionism as we do,’ said Yovav Kalifon, co-founder of Tiyul Rihla Trip. Kalifon believes that Israelis and Palestinians form their political opinions on the basis of their view of history and national identity, issues he seeks to delve into during the two-day trips. ‘We discuss meaningful things that go beyond day-to-day politics,’ he said.” ...

“In honor of World Water Day, marked on March 22, Israeli-Australian water expert Gidon Bromberg was invited to participate in the US State Department Water Security and Transboundary Cooperation panel and brief US officials on the water situation in Israel.
Bromberg is the director of EcoPeace, a regional environmental NGO that focuses on water and has offices in Tel Aviv, Bethlehem and Amman. He is a man driven by strong sense of urgency. Some think he is naive or that he cries wolf, but he believes that after four consecutive years of drought, we are nearing a regional water crisis – one that Israel can solve.” ... See MoreSee Less

“Non-political, people-to-people programs that bring Israelis and Palestinians together and build mutual understanding and respect also contribute toward a healthier more productive environment. Supported by the Alliance for Middle East Peace, HR 1221, a bill calling for the creation of a $200 million international fund to support such people-to-people programs, was recently introduced into the House by Representatives Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (R-Neb.) and Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.). This legislation was endorsed by the center — The Jewish Federations of North America, Jewish Council for Public Affairs, AJC, the ADL, and others. It may not be as sexy as a peace agreement signing on the White House lawn, but these efforts are crucial building blocks for peace.” ... See MoreSee Less

“Unfortunately, these ventures rarely get media attention, or the funding they need from multinationals to be scalable and sustainable. And yet the kinds of dynamic young Israelis and Palestinians creating startups together are ‘the only real chance for peace,’ in the view of Robert Kraft. ‘We [at Our Generation Speaks] try to pick good people, give them autonomy, and let them spawn and grow and be turned on by the power of the project. Our family is about building bridges, and we think this is one of those projects that just has unlimited potential, with everyone on both sides having a stake.’” ... See MoreSee Less

ALLMEP took part in the fantastic event "Northern Ireland’s Lessons for Israeli-Palestinian Peace" this past Monday. The United States Institute of Peace and the Embassy of Ireland in Washington, D.C. gathered together former government officials, peacebuilding practitioners and scholars to examine what worked in advancing peace in Northern Ireland—and what lessons might be applied to the difficult process of peacemaking and peacebuilding between Israelis and Palestinians. Former Senator George Mitchell, who served as an envoy in both peace processes, keynoted the event. Thank you to our friends at USIP! ... See MoreSee Less
