On a Quest for Peace and Reconciliation Parent's Circle Interview With Parents Circle's Layla and Robi

I'm honored to share this special episode of the Mother's Quest Podcast. Thank you for showing up to this important conversation about two mothers and their quest for peace and reconciliation in Palestine and Israel. Thank you for choosing to press play.  If ever there was a year demanding us to "show up" this has been one. From COVID to floods and fires and refugee crises...our consciousness has had a lot to hold. It can be all too easy to shut down. To throw up our hands. And to say "what can I do?" That question "what can I do?" is one I asked myself during the crisis that unfolded in Palestine and Israel In May of 2021. For days, watching the horrifying headlines, I felt powerless. Then several truths came to me and an intention to find a path to action which I shared in a FB post, like sending a wish to the universe. The very next day, the “guides” I was looking for appeared.  In a conversation with my mother, I learned about the Parents Circle, an incredible organization of Palestinians and Israelis who have lost children or family members in the conflict, and instead of turning to revenge, come together to work toward peace and reconciliation. Soon after, I found myself recording a conversation with Layla Alsheikh, a Palestinian mother originally born in Jordan, who lost her son Qussay at the age of 6 months old. And Robi Damelin,  an Israeli mother, originally from South Africa, who lost her adult son David while he was serving in the army. Although today's topic is especially heavy - one of loss and tremendous grief, Layla and Robi share their narratives with us for a specific purpose - to help us understand their experience and to support their efforts in bringing Palestinian and Israeli mothers in particular together to work toward change. Inspired by all they shared with me, the week after we recorded, I began to raise money toward a fund to help them bring together bereaved Palestinian and Israeli mothers of the Parents Circle. Along the way, I've been moved by so many mothers who have already contributed. Mothers like Jena Schwartz, who dedicates this episode with a beautiful poem she shares at the end of this conversation. Jena was the first to donate and her powerful words are an invitation to you to say “yes” to this cause.  To date we have raised $5,000, half of the $10,000 goal I set. And we have more to go. Though the height of the crisis in May has receded from the headlines, violence continues in many forms, and the path for peace and reconciliation is needed more than ever.  I ask you to listen with an open heart, to follow the links in the show notes to learn more, to contribute in any amount meaningful to you, and to amplify the voices of Layla, Robi and others like them, mothers closest to this conflict. They are a key to any path forward.   In this episode we talk about: The experiences of two mothers Robi and Layla - one Israeli and one Palestianian -  who lost children in the conflict and turned their grief into a quest for peace and reconciliation. The tremendous power of listening to bereaved mothers' stories.  How Robi and Layla each got involved with The Parent's Circle, an organization of Palestinian and Israelis that brings bereaved parents and family members together in solidarity.  How you can help support the Parent Circle and promote peace and reconciliation among Israeli and Palestinian families. The importance of not importing the conflict into our own countriesWhy we shouldn't position ourselves as Pro-Palestinian or Pro-Israeli but Pro- Peace. How Robi and Layla sustain themselves and find continued hope, even in their loss.  Opportunities to get involved and how we can specifically support the mothers of the Parents Circle to come together.  Poet Jena Schwartz' powerful poem “The Undefended Heart” and an invitation to contribute.    This episode's challenge:  Both Layla and Robi challenge us to join them in fighting for peace instead of violence in the following ways:  Contribute to the fund to help them bring together Palestinian and Israeli mothers Invite representatives of the Parents Circles to your groups, synagogues, churches, mosques and organizations to share their story.  Follow the work of the Parents Circle and participate in their educational and awareness-building opportunities About Layla: Layla Alsheikh was born and raised in Jordan. She had a peaceful and normal upbringing and graduated with a degree in accounting and business management. She eventually met her husband in Jordan 1999 and moved to Bethlehem, where her husband lived for the wedding. However, a few years later tragedy struck her life.   In 2002, her 6 months old son, Qussay, became ill and Israeli soldiers prevented Layla from taking him to the hospital for more than five hours. Qussay soon died from the lack of timely treatment. Layla joined the Parents Circle in 2016. Following her son's death, she never thought of revenge, but rather has devoted her time and energy to ensuring a better, more peaceful future for her children.   About Robi: Robi Damelin was originally from South Africa and came to Israel in 1967. She originally came to Israel as a volunteer after the “Six Day War”. Her real plan was to live in the states but after spending time in Israel she developed a love-hate relationship with the place. She eventually got married and had two kids here. Unfortunately, Robi's son, David, was killed by a Palestinian sniper in 2002 while guarding a checkpoint near a settlement during his army reserve service. She speaks to Israelis, Palestinians, and audiences all over the world to demand that reconciliation be a part of any peace agreement. Robi was named a 2015 Woman of Impact by Women in the World.   Follow Robi:  Website Twitter     About the Parents Circle The Parents Circle – Families Forum is a joint Israeli-Palestinian organization made up of more than 600 bereaved families. Their common bond is that they have lost a close family member to the conflict. But instead of choosing revenge, they have chosen a path of reconciliation. American Friends of the Parents Circle – Families Forum shares the human side of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with the American public in order to foster a peace and reconciliation process. The Parents Circle Policies: We work towards an end to violence and towards achieving an accepted political agreement. The members of the Parents Circle oppose the Occupation and believe that it is possible to end the conflict.  They wish  to influence the public and in turn, decision makers, to choose reconciliation and the path of peace over violence and war.   Our goal is to create a framework of reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians to support any political peace agreement.   To prevent further bereavement and to avoid the use of bereavement for further violence and retribution.     Connect with the Parents Circle  Website Facebook Instagram Twitter Youtube     This Episode is Dedicated by: Jena Schwartz  Jena Schwartz is a writing coach, poet, and activist in Western Massachusetts whose work is deeply rooted in Jewish values. As a mother herself, "The Undefended Heart" emerged as a prayer of sorts out of her own yearning for peace in the face of so much injustice and suffering in Israel/Palestine.

We are all deeply connected The harm to one mother and her child is harm to every mother and every child, regardless of our differences A history of oppression and casting out can never justify more of the same Extremism in any form becomes a cancer Silence and doing nothing is a choice. A choice I cannot make. So I will remember I am not alone There are guides all around me And ways to make an impact that will reveal themselves If I just take the first step.” Julie Neale FB Post May 17, 2021

Huda Abuarquob -- A Palestinian Woman Building Peace From The Bottom Up

Awakin Call

“Hope is a luxury we cannot afford losing.  Especially women, if we lose hope, we lose the future of our children.” – Huda Abu Arquob Born in Jerusalem to respected Palestinian scholars and educators, Huda Abu Arquob’s great-grandfather was one of the many Muslim Palestinians who took in and protected Jewish residents of Hebron during the 1929 massacre. “That story has not been properly documented,” Huda says, “perhaps because it challenges the simplistic narrative of Palestinians and Israelis fighting for 3,000 years. I’ve felt throughout my life that is it important to challenge these false narratives and to try and change the way we look at the ‘Other’.” And that’s precisely what she’s now doing as an adult. Based in Hebron, Huda Abu Arquob is the Regional Director of the Alliance for Middle East Peace (ALLMEP), a coalition and network of more than 130 civil society organizations working in Palestine and in Israel on conflict transformation, peacebuilding and nonviolent direct actions. She is also a recognized leader in grassroots initiatives focused on Feminist Inclusive Political Activism (FIPA), and an advocate of UN 1325 seeking to increase women participation in decision making levels in Palestine and Israel. In 2017, Huda received the first-ever Laudato Si’ Award from the Catholic Pope in the Vatican for her lifelong commitment to peacebuilding and conflict transformation. A teacher turned peacebuilder, she believes that the world has a wrong perception of Palestinians as an inherently violent, militant people and that this stereotype needs to change. “Palestinians are not violent by nature,” she says. “Most of us are determined to work together and we are determined to live together with Israelis. We’re the majority but we aren’t reported about in the media." While she admits that "not all Palestinians are eager to see the humanity in Israelis,” she insists that many grassroots organizations are using “the power of nonviolent resistance to regain our humanity. If we are a people fighting for our rights we should not in the process lose our humanity.” For Huda, a sustainable peace solution to the current Israel-Palestine conflict lies not with political leadership at the top, but with internal people-to-people dialogues, particularly among women. Her life work revolves around building strong grassroots Israeli-Palestinian relationships as a foundation for lasting peace. But she learned early on that simply fostering contact among people alone, without more collective healing work and social change education, does not transform conflict. A Fulbright scholarship brought Huda to U.S. in the early 2000s, where she did a graduate degree in conflict transformation and peace studies. While living in the U.S., she teamed up with a Jewish man to form Abraham’s Vision, a San Francisco-based nonprofit that brought together Palestinian and Jewish university students in comparative conflict analysis for a summer of experiential learning, including a four-week visit to the conflict-ridden former Yugoslavia. “Unlike some programs that mix Israelis and Palestinian young people, we don’t believe that just having contact with each other is transformative—we don’t sweep our differences under the rug,” said Huda of the approach she and her co-founder took at Abraham’s Vision. “We believe it is important to understand social-identity and power dynamics of people in conflict. We put a huge amount of effort into healing collective and individual traumas before we position people to work together to resolve their conflicts.” Upon returning to Palestine, Huda began to forge connections between Jewish and Palestinian people. Her goal is to tear down stereotypes and create a new language and imagination of new possibilities based on "sincere curiosity that strives to reveal what we share and what is possible." According to Huda, women, in particular, have a unique contribution to make in the peacebuilding process. "Women don’t have the ego-centric proposition for peace," she has said. Unlike some narrow-minded politicians, women “put their eyes on the goal and not competition." Reflecting on life amid a longstanding and violent conflict, Huda says, “I refuse to be either an enemy or a victim. The helplessness that comes from feeling yourself to be a victim is paralysing but it was not in the nature of the women I grew up with; they were always fighting, adapting and progressing.” Huda is the oldest of twelve children, and an aunt to twenty-eight (and counting!) nieces and nephews. Now residing in Hebron, she lived for eight years in the U.S. and has traveled extensively in Europe and the Middle East. Join Aryae Coopersmith and Janessa Wilder in conversation with this extraordinary feminist peacebuilder.

Fan of the show? https://www.patreon.com/newleftradio (Support us on Patreon)! With the longest continuous occupation in the world, the movement for justice in Israel/Palestine and Palestinian liberation has been a strong voice for decades. The events of the early summer - the evictions in Sheikh Jarrah and the brutal violence inflicted on the people of Gaza seems to have changed the paradigm in North America, with millions pouring into the streets in solidarity with Palestinians and demanding a change to the brutal and dehumanizing occupation. We're joined by Aaron Lakoff of Independent Jewish Voices, and Dalia Al-Masri of the Palestinian Youth Movement to discuss the shifting landscape, the Canadian response, and what we can do to support a just resolution in the region. Links http://www.ijvcanada.org/ (Independent Jewish Voices) https://palestinianyouthmovement.com/ (Palestinian Youth Movement) https://bdsmovement.net/ (Boycott, Divestment, & Sanctions Movement) http://bdsguide.com/bds-list/ (BDS List) About Independent Jewish Voices We are a group of Jews in Canada from diverse backgrounds, occupations and affiliations who share a strong commitment to social justice and universal human rights. We come together in the belief that the broad spectrum of opinion among the Jewish population of this country is not reflected by those institutions that claim to represent Jewish communities as a whole. We further believe that individuals and groups within all communities should feel free to express their views on any issue of public concern without incurring accusations of disloyalty. We have therefore resolved to promote the expression of alternative Jewish voices, particularly in respect of the grave situation in the Middle East, which threatens the future of Palestinians and Israelis as well as the stability of the whole region. About Palestinian Youth Movement The Palestinian Youth Movement (“PYM”) is a transnational, independent, grassroots movement of young Palestinians in Palestine and in exile worldwide as a result of the ongoing Zionist colonization and occupation of our homeland. Our belonging to Palestine and our aspirations for justice and liberation motivate us to assume an active role as a young generation in our national struggle for the liberation of our homeland and people. Irrespective of our different political, cultural and social backgrounds, we strive to revive a tradition of pluralistic commitment toward our cause to ensure a better future, characterized by freedom and justice on a social and political level, for ourselves and subsequent generations.

Lev Luis Grinberg presents a penetrating contribution to Israeli political economic history. In Mo(ve)ments of Resistance: Politics, Economy and Society in Israel/Palestine, 1931-2013 (Academics Studies Press, 2014), Grinberg summarizes both his own work and that of other political economists, providing a coherent historical narrative covering the time from the beginning of Socialist Zionism (1904) to the Oslo Accords and the neoliberalization of the economy (1994–1996). The theoretical approach of the book combines eventful sociology, path dependency, and institutional political economy. Grinberg argues that historical political events have been shaped not only by political and economic forces but also by resistance struggles of marginal and weaker social groups: organized workers, Palestinians, and Mizrachi Jews. Major turning points in history, like the Separation War in 1948, the military occupation in 1967, and the Oslo peace process in 1993, are explained in the context of previous social and economic resistance struggles that affected the political outcomes.

In this episode of the Plant Medicine Podcast, Leor Roseman and Antwan Saca join to discuss their recently published paper: Relational Processes in Ayahuasca Groups of Palestinians and Israelis. Leor is a postdoc at the Centre for Psychedelic Research at Imperial College London, where he also received his PhD and masters under the supervision of Dr. Robin Carhart-Harris. Leor has diverse research interests related to psychedelics, ranging from the neuroscientific and therapeutic, to the phenomenological and psychosocial. Antwan is a graduate of the Arab American University of Jenin with a BA in public law and has extensive experience working for justice in Palestine. He has served as the director of programs at Holy Land Trust in Bethlehem and as a program coordinator for Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation. Antwan has also worked as a research assistant for urbanization and geopolitical monitoring at the Applied Research Institute—Jerusalem. In this episode, Leor and Antwan discuss the details of the recent paper they co-authored which deals with impacts of ayahuasca on interpersonal peace building in the context of the Israel-Palestine conflict. The study consists of 31 in-depth interviews with Israelis and Palestinians who've participated in joint ayahuasca ceremonies and looks to investigate the impact of this psychedelic experience along three relational themes: unity-based connection, recognition and difference-based connection, and conflict-related revelations. Through open-ended interviews, Leor and Antwan were able to collect qualitative data from participants which allowed research conclusions to arise organically.  In the interviews, participants disclosed experiences of profound political revelations, connection with the land, and empathy for the other. Leor and Antwan stress that the initial motivations of the participants typically had little to do with notions of political peace-building and instead they were most often participating in these psychedelic ceremonies for reasons related to personal growth, so these outcomes arose naturally as a result of the intense interpersonal connections spurred by the psychedelic experience.  Though these ayahuasca ceremonies had significant positive impacts for both the Israelis and the Palestinian participants, Antwan notes the disparity of access to psychedelic healing for Palestinians and emphasizes that the “love for the other” the Palestinian participants experienced through the ayahuasca ceremonies is complicated due to the pervasive political supression and percarity experienced by Palestinians in their day-to-day lives. The study, however, demonstrates that profound experiences of connection through the use of psychedelic medicines are possible even in the context of a deep and traumatic geopolitical conflict. This opens the door for further study of the potential of psychedelics to facilitate conflict resolution and peace-building.   In this episode: How Leor and Antwan developed the idea for this study based on their personal backgrounds Different themes which came up in interviews with the Israelis and Palestinians in the study The moving story of a former Israeli military officer and how he experienced the pain of the Palestinian people during an ayahuasca ceremony How music and prayer in the ceremonies helped to encourage empathy and cultural connection among participants   Quotes: “It's not questionnaires, it's not about measuring things, it's about listening to stories and making meaning out of them.” [13:24] “Because the rituals were participatory and music and prayers were shared, a lot of times these opened up for people the strong connection to the other culture or the other people and that was very meaningful for many people.” [21:34] “A lot of us Palestinians end up in the interviews telling you ‘this is all amazing' and yet there is the reality, yet we live under this kind of suppression.” [29:11] “Not all people that came to the ceremonies came from the peace camp or from left-leaning camps. They come for psycho-spiritual growth, or even for physical illnesses… And they go there regardless of their politics.” [31:37]   Links: Full Article: Relational Processes in Ayahuasca Groups of Palestinians and Israelis Psychedelic Medicine Association Porangui

On this edition of Parallax Views, the Vermont-based ice cream company Ben and Jerry's has recently caused a bit of an uproar over its decision to stop selling its product in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. This has cause current Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennet and former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu to speak out. Additionally politicians in the U.S., from Oklahoma to Texas, are calling for the banning of Ben and Jerry's. It may seem like a frivolous issue, but returning  Parallax Views guest Ret. Maj. Danny Sjursen argues there's serious issues underneath the Ben and Jerry's row over issues related to human rights and Israel/Palestine. At the forefront of this is BDS (Boycot, Divestment, and Sanctions) and the free speech issues arising from anti-BDS laws in over 30 states in the U.S. Danny and I discuss the Ben & Jerry's fiasco, the BDS movement and anti-BDS laws, and the continued debates about Israel/Palestine, the question of apartheid, and human rights abuses in the Occupied territories.

For decades, the Israel-Palestine conflict has been one of imperialism's most blatant acts of oppression—with the systematic annihilation of the rights and lives of the Palestinian people at the hand of the Israeli state. Under capitalism, both the one-state and two-state solutions are utopian and can only lead to barbarism.  Marxists have a radically different proposal. In this talk from the 2019 Revolution Festival in London, Fred Weston (editor of marxist.com) puts forward a socialist, working-class, internationalist perspective: to fight for the revolutionary mobilization of the Middle Eastern masses against capitalism and imperialism, and for a Socialist Federation of the Middle East.

Join a panel of experts for a discussion of el-Sisi's role in repressing human rights in Egypt and Palestine. Trump's reference to Egyptian leader Abdel Fattah el-Sisi as his “favorite dictator” revealed the former US president's penchant for lawlessness and authoritarian rule. But the Biden administration continues to provide carte blanche for Sisi's widespread repression and human rights abuses, based on the premise that Egypt plays an important role in enforcing US policies for the region, in particular as a mediator between Palestinians and Israel. This Realpolitik logic of unconditional support for tyrants is shortsighted. The Sisi regime is currently imprisoning an estimated 60,000 political prisoners while it also plays a central role in maintaining the longstanding blockade of Gaza and jails Palestine solidarity activists in Egypt. This forum will address the state of human rights in Egypt, Sisi's role in besieging Palestinians (in collusion with Israel and the Palestinian Authority), how US policy fuels repression in Egypt and Egypt's nefarious role in Israel-Palestine, and what progressives can do to improve human rights conditions for Egyptians and Palestinians.

Phil Weiss comes back on the show to talk about Israel-Palestine. Now that Netanyahu has been ousted, Weiss is hopeful about the Biden administration's ability to work with Israel's new coalition government on issues like settlements and the Iran nuclear deal. Although Israel's new prime minister, Naftali Bennett, is possibly even further to the right than Netanyahu, he is working closely with centrist Yair Lapid and, for the first time ever, with an Arab party in the Knesset. Weiss is also optimistic about the international community: the Israelis have gone too far, he thinks, in "establishing facts on the ground"—in other words, everyone can see that the two-state solution is dead, and the Israeli government is nakedly presiding over an apartheid regime. Discussed on the show: "Israel is ‘considerably weakened' — as BDS finds a home in the Democratic Party" (Mondoweiss) "Biden won't make Obama's mistake — so there will be ‘no daylight' between U.S. and Israel" (Mondoweiss) "Israeli Authorities and the Crimes of Apartheid and Persecution" (Human Rights Watch) Philip Weiss is the long-time editor of Mondoweiss.net.
