A message of peace and building a future

I just listened to an amazing speech… I can’t say much more about this, other than that this is possibly the best speech I have ever heard on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Agreed, it’s from the Israeli “side” but with a little twist: it was spoken by an Israeli diplomat of Palestinian descent named George Deek. I think he had some very powerful things to say, the speech touched me to the very core……

To quote from the end of this speech:

“We cannot change the past, but we can secure a future for our next generations. And if we want to mend the past some day, we can help Palestinian refugees have a normal life. We can be sincere about our past and learn from our mistakes. And we can unite Muslims, Jews and Christians to protect our right to be different and by that preserve our humanity.”

Here is a 30 minute video of the speech, very much worth the listen. Please do, if you care about peace in the Middle East.  Even if you don’t agree, if you listen to it seriously it at the very least will give food for thought.

For some reason I can’t embed the video, so here’s a still of George Deek from the video and a link to the video itself:

Let us move forward and learn to live together and build a FUTURE!
