Israel Palestine dialogue
The real threat to the peace process between Israel and Palestine stems from their inability to look at their own policies critically. It is time to quit blaming and start finding solutions. Damn it, the leaders ought to be ashamed of them if they cannot look in the eyes of Palestinian and Israeli Children and commit to give them a better life. The leaders need to learn that, they cannot have peace and security when they keep threatening others around them, period.
Mike Ghouse for India
We are proud of our heritage – a multi-faith, multi-cultural, multi-regional and multi-linguistic society, where we have come to accept and respect every which way people have lived their lives. For over 5000 years, India has been a beacon of pluralism – it has embraced Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Baha’i and Zoroastrianism to include in the array of the indigenous religions; Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism and Sikhism. I am proud of my heritage and am proud to be an Indian-American.
Our goal is to identify the conflicts across the globe and find pluralistic solutions. I believe peace is an outcome of justice and liberty to one and all. God has created each one of us and it is our responsibility to treat everyone as we would want to be treated. If we can learn to accept and respect the God given uniqueness to each one of the 7 billion of us, then conflicts fade and solutions emerge.
