A reminder – We are all Israelis
With public debate too often highlighting and even accentuating the divisions in Israeli society, the Peres Center for Peace and Innovation decided that it is time to remind everyone – We are ALL Israelis.
The Center’s Board of Directors and staff published the following letter – In Hebrew, Arabic and English - emphasizing the important and equal role of everyone in Israeli society, regardless of ethnic, religious, cultural or other differences.
“We, the Board of Directors and staff of the Peres Center for Peace and Innovation – both Jewish and Arab – believe in and stand behind the democratic values of the State of Israel and call for maintaining partnership, fighting against exclusion and securing a proper place for all citizens in pursuit of a better future, peace and prosperity for all.
For more than 20 years, the Peres Center has been working to connect all sectors and cultures in Israel – Jews, Muslims, Christians and Druze. Through our various activities, participants continuously discover that we are all human and that we all have the ability to overcome barriers, fears and prejudices for a common purpose all without losing our unique and diverse identities.”
