For more than a year, I have been working with a family friend to help him pursue this project. We hope that MouthPeace will bring people together, often people who do not talk about common interests, values and personal beliefs, as they live in one country, but share related histories with different interpretations or perspectives and often do not interact, living in parallel worlds.
Through these future conversations, over food and drink, we hope these individuals will modulate their perspectives, interpretations, beliefs and values so divides are bridged and violence dissipates in Israel and its surrounding countries. I recognize that for many this is a dream. But as Herzl (a force — visionary — behind the establishment of Israel) once stated, If you will it, it is no dream; and if you do not will it, a dream it is and a dream it will stay.
As time passes, the will to make Herzl’s dream and the dream of a rich nation (in heritage, values, growth as a series of functional communities or cities with residents of many cultures and faiths) needs our efforts more than ever.
