The Voice of Joyce: “Two States for Two People ” concept and MAP!

I am for the Pope , I understand that he gave the Peace process a nudge. He is protecting Christian enclaves , like Jericho and he’s correct to do so. Was it so bad to call ABBAS an “Angel of Peace”?

Israel’s survival as a Jewish state depends upon Israel redefining who is a Jew. I propose that a Jew can be anyone born or converted to Judaism or any person willing to live in Peace with the Israelis. Sounds simple enough. Israel’s land mass and security concerns don’t lend themselves to a divided country concept. … More PUBLIC ADVOCACY: perhaps we are all Jews?

PUBLIC ADVOCACY: The art of listening

The art of listening carefully. When some people speak, you have to listen. When John Kerry said, Israel will make Peace with The Palestinians or there would be a Third Infatada, he knew ! No, not the rocks and bomb type, but the Monetary kind. Like Thomas Friedman echoed in the NY Times, 2/5/14, European … More PUBLIC ADVOCACY: The art of listening
