Amal Nassar | The Tent of Nations | Reconciliation, Peacemaking & Building Bridges Between People

Feb 21, 20160 comments

Amal Nassar (of the “The Tent of Nations”) and Graham Hill discuss peacemaking, reconciliation, and building bridges between people. Amal Nassar is part of a Palestinian Christian family that preaches non-violence from a farm in the West Bank. They’ve been battling to hold on to their land (they’ve owned this land in the West Bank for 100 years). Now surrounded by Israeli settlements, the family is a living example of the idea of peaceful resistance.

Guided by a vision for building bridges between Israelis and Palestinians, and moved by a dream for hope, understanding, reconciliation, dialogue, and peace, Amal Nassar and her family have transformed their West Bank farm into a centre for peace-building, non-violent resistance, and Israeli-Palestinian reconciliation, called the Tent of Nations. See http://www.tentofnations.org

For more than 20 years, they’ve welcomed Israeli students, rabbis, and peace activists, and a host of international guests, and taught Palestinians about non-violence, forgiveness, and the power of love.

If anyone’s wondering about the background in the interview, I interviewed Amal in a cave on her farm in the West Bank. Covering the walls of the cave are paintings and words about peace and reconciliation (written in many languages). It was a moving experience for me.

In front of the cave is a large stone that says: “We refuse to be enemies.”
