WITH the news coming out of the Gaza, you’d probably doubt the possibility of Palestinians and Israelis being on the same page, let alone in the same room. But these families came together to agree on at least one thing: They want to stop seeing their loved ones killed.
Recently, the Parents Circle-Families Forum (PCFF) brought together Palestinians and Israelis to promote peace and show reconciliation is possible. The nonprofit group shot a video featuring people who have lost loved ones in the political and religious violence that has shattered their hometowns. In an effort to demonstrate their hardship, members of the group came together in the video below with a resounding message on repeat: “We do not want you here.” The meaning is clear: They want no new members in this “club” of families aggrieved by violence.
“The PCFF has concluded that the process of reconciliation between nations is a prerequisite to achieving a sustainable peace,” their website reads.
