"I will never forget our conversation." ~ Rida Said (foreground) referring to his talk with Oded, an Israeli activist from Rabbis for Human Rights, while they were picking olives in Rida's family grove, Jama'in, West Bank, 2002: Read about Palestinian-Israeli "co-resistance" to Israeli occupation and settler violence and how "olive grove conversations" can help to build friendship, respect and understanding between Palestinians and Israelis... -- (photo by Rains Rouner)

"The Jewish father's loss is as great as my own" -- Omar Abu Nassi, Jenin refugee camp, West Bank, 2002, whose son was killed by Israeli police after his son, without his father's knowledge, killed an Israeli in an act of rage against the Israeli occupation after Israeli soldiers shot and killed his best friend while the two boys were walking together to school. Inspired by Omar's universal empathy and compassion, Israeli interfaith aid from RHR, Islamic Relief, Caritas and the Church of the Latin Patriarch was delivered to Jenin camp in November 2002. -- (photo by Rains Rouner)
