The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil,
but because of the people who don't do anything about it

Israelis & Palestinians hold grassroots negotiatations in downtown Tel-Aviv
The Israeli-Palestinian Grassroots Congress Israelis & Palestinians hold
grassroots negotiatations in downtown Tel-Aviv
April 30, 2015, 10AM – 6PM
On April 30, 2015, an Israeli delegation, a Palestinian delegation and an
audience will negotiate solutions to the conflict at the corner of Rothschild
Boulevard and Shenkin Street, Tel Aviv. Each delegation will include 20 people
from all walks of life: Israeli generals, Palestinian commanders, Israeli
settlers, Palestinian ex-prisoners, academics, business people, and students.
Passers by are most welcome to come, listen and also take part.
Of course, neither the Israeli nor the Palestinian participants are in any way
authorized or accredited to negotiate and sign a binding agreement. Still, the
fact of grassroots Israelis and Palestinians being able to sit down, negotiate
all the serious and contentious issues and reach agreement – also, and
especially, in the present situation – should serve as a model and stimulant to
decision-makers on both sides to hold officially-authorized negotiations, reach
an agreement – and implement it on the ground.
The congress is co-chaired by Dr. Sapir Handelman – an Israeli who received the
Peter Becker Award in Peace & Conflict Studies; and Mr. Wisam Seder – a well-
known Palestinian athlete and educator.
This event is an important step towards the establishment of a major Israeli-
Palestinian Grassroots Negotiating Congress with political power. The congress
is designed to involve the people in the peacemaking efforts and motivate the
leaderships to conclude agreements.
The Minds of Peace Organization has successfully led 26 small-scale Israeli-
Palestinian public negotiating congresses around the US and Canada, in the
Middle-East, and in open public places in Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem. In nearly all
of the congresses, the delegations succeeded in reaching peace agreements. This
is an highly significant result, considering that the various delegations
included people with widely different political views and from all walks of
life. To view the agreements and videos visit: www.mindsofpeace.org and
