Meeting between Israeli Russian-speakers and young Palestinians political activists

In early November, we brought together a group of young Palestinian political and social activists and a group of young leaders from the Israeli Russian-speaking community. None of them has ever set down for a serious conversation with someone from the other side before.  

 

At the end of the meeting, one Palestinian participant said that for the first time in a very long period, he is hopeful about the future. “I met people like me today, they want peace and security for themselves and their children. I think that that is what the majority of Israelis and Palestinians want. We just need to figure out how to make our voices heard.”
