I am on the board of One Voice a not for profit organization that promotes understanding between Palestinians and Israelis. Right now there´s a live session going on at Davos that is called Enough is Enough: Israel and the Palestinian Territories. What follows is an email from the founder of One Voice, my friend Daniel Lubetzky. You can watch the session here.

Dear Martin,

I hope this finds you well.

I just wanted to let you know that at 4.15pm today Swiss time (10.15am EST) hundreds of OneVoice youth leaders and staff are going to be featured in front of 1,000+ world leaders and dignitaries at a special World Economic Forum session.

This is a huge opportunity – for the first time, the voices of moderate citizens have the floor, and they can address their leaders directly and demand answers from them. You have helped to make this happen. It should be an amazing event – you can watch live by clicking here.

In case you can’t see it live, you can use this link to see the OneVoice videos that are being featured:

It’s going to be a serious reward for the work the Palestinian and Israeli teams have put in through the difficult recent months, and will provide a great launch for the 2007 vision we are rapidly seeing come together.

All the best,

Daniel and the OneVoice Team

i was in israel with some of the one voice team the day of the event – very exciting.

the reality on the ground in israel means that we will need herculean efforts to make a difference. i spent some time at the knesset with various MK’s during this trip. Iran figures very high on their radar screen. the dynamics are so complex as both very local and broad international drama play out at the same time in the same small space.

seeing the new wall in israel is like looking at the Great Wall of China. it snakes across the hills surrounding jerusalem just the like looking at the wall north of beijing.
