    I love the way you express so much in very simple terms. They are such simple, honest statements, yet ones that are so dangerous to say and ones I have never heard spoken before. That is what makes your group so unique. You are not afraid to say it how you see it – you spoke against Fatah and Hamas and in this way were able to bring them together. To step aside from the politics, talk about humanity and put people first, before power, is incredibly strong. Not to get sucked into the rhetoric of hate when there is so much to pain. It is so refreshing to hear your openness, exposing things for what they are without worrying about protecting perpetrators through a loyalty that isn’t reciprocated. If more people from all sides of the divide can follow your lead, and not get stuck in fear, and are able to speak honestly with each other with the goal of extending human rights to everyone and working non-violently, we can actually find a solution to this stuck situation. You are the hope. Show the world how non-defensiveness and the exposing of corruption wherever it is will create a more stable, secure, and healthier situation for civilians everywhere.

    I wish that you would have a better life. As long as you have a government (?) whose main platform is hate-of Jews, Israel, things will not improve. I pray for peace for all humanity.
