Israeli peace activists work to reconcile with Palestinians
Since its founding in 1948, the State of Israel has witnessed many wars and almost daily tension with Palestinians. Numerous rocket and terrorist attacks have made the word ‘security’ almost holy for Israelis. This security is usually achieved through military force, but some Israeli activists think only reconciliation with the Palestinians will bring a lasting peace. They are ready to fight for their cause regardless of the vitriolic reactions their fellow citizens.
