You are probably following with horror the news from Israel and the West Bank. It’s easy to despair in the face of
all the misery. Israelis and Palestinians have been deadlocked in this violent embrace, unable to find a way to
separate into two states living side by side in peace and security.
In such times, when there is no political horizon to give us hope, we can find solace in the work of individuals,
people on both sides – yes, on both sides – who despite the trouble around them choose to reach out and build
One such hero is my friend David Broza, the famous Israeli singer-songwriter, who is a committed peace activist and
a longtime friend of Israel’s Peace Now movement.
David recently made an album, produced by Steve Earle, devoted to peace, collaborating with Palestinian musicians
to build musical bridges to Palestinians in East Jerusalem. His album, and a documentary that tells the story of
the making of this album, are now available as a set, exclusively to APN
donors like you.
Please read David’s letter below. It will give you hope, and – hopefully – inspiration.
