If there is to be any real hope for peace between Israel and Palestine, then it surely
rests with the next generation. Young people across the region yearn for a better
future - one without hatred and emnity - a true spirit of coexistence, trust and
cooperation. If the dark clouds of conflict are to disappear and be replaced with
a brighter future, then we must hear the voice of the children.
Young people are speaking out across the region. They want a better world and one
where they can take their place as equals and good neighbours. It's time for a complete
rethink. In 2013, yet another generation of children is damaged by the politics of
intransigence and mistrust. If past peace initiatives haven't changed the on-the-ground
situation, then an entirely fresh way forward is urgently needed.
Our Youth Ambassador Programme reflects this change. Young people across the region
- in Israel and in Palestine (and in the USA and Europe) are joining our programme
to champion our principles of dialogue, mutual respect and understanding.
In this edition, our lead story by one of our Palestinian Youth Ambassadors - Mahmoud
Masri - is an eloquent and powerful plea for peace and reconciliation.
It's a message many now want to hear. This why our unique Coalition of Peace is flourishing.
Over 150 groups in Gaza, Israel, Jordan and the West Bank participate in this network.
Children of Peace acts as a key peace hub that offers a channel of contact and dialogue
between groups that have had little or no contact before.
Our position is clear: conflict resolution revolves around justice and security,
changing hearts and minds and hearing each other's narrative. It's all about making
contact, opening up channels of dialogue and peace corridors between diverse communities
and former enemies.
Above all, it's all about the children. Often forgotten in the fog of conflict, they
are our best hope for a future when the two states - Israel and Palestine - can live
and work together in peace, side-by-side.
Protecting the children and hearing their voice is our priority. We need your support
to help us to make that happen. Please donate to Children of Peace.
