Our friends from OneVoice have undertaken a very interesting approach since 2002 at engaging Palestinians and Israelis in greater civic involvement. The following has been posted on their blog:
“Take a look at these OV pictures from the Palestinian and Israeli streets. What is their meaning?
Amidst growing acrimony, polarization and violence in the Middle East, it may be difficult to visualize how we can actually channel the frustrated energies of millions of Israelis and Palestinians – those who desire a better life for their children – into a process that will actually lead to ending the conflict.
Violent extremists have been willing to sacrifice their lives – and the lives of others – to achieve absolutist visions that deny the humanity of the other side. They are a fringe minority, but they show a total commitment and hijack our governments and lives.

So today we wish to announce the OneVoice Movement’s most ambitious undertaking to date: A campaign to encourage each and every one of us to answer the question: What Are You Willing to Do to End the Conflict and Achieve a Two State Solution?
