i am pained to disappoint so many…

Oct 14, 2007 Published under Middle East, OneVoice Movement

It was a very tough decision canceling the Israeli side of the event, when tens of thousands had already signed up to come – and I can only wonder if they won’t understand our decision and be disappointed, which pains me.

Primarily the people that I don’t have daily contact with and don’t know.

Primarily all those who were planning to be with us on October 18th and flew from different parts of the world to be with us.

And all the people who worked so hard and sacrificed so much for the sake of the Israeli and Palestinian people and for the sake of peace.

But this was the right and principled decision, and those who stood firm to remind us that we need to carry out our mission rather than be carried away by our momentum with the event, were correct.

For the sake of all in this region and in this globe, we cannot stop.
