One Voice, One Peace

One Voice  

All your strength is in your union, all your danger is in discord; Therefore be at peace henceforward, and as brothers live together- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (from The Song of Hiawatha)

Mostly the news from the Middle East is filled with stories of suicide bombers, violent clashes and kidnappings. Althought there is no denying the size of the problem there is a point of light shining in the darkness. Good people, reasonable people are weary of war. One Voice is a grassroots effort that started in 2002 to bring out the voice of moderate Palestinians, Israelis and others around the world who want peace and prosperity. Their vow is to end the destructive extremism that has caused so much death. Watch this inspiring video of the young executive director of One Voice speaking at the 2007 World Economic Forum. Hope.
