'Everything toward peace has an effect'

RECENTLY WE SAT DOWN with Kayed Khalil and Mishi Neubach. Kayed is a Palestinian-American chiropractor living in the Boston area, and Mishi is an Israeli tour guide and teacher who lives in Jerusalem. Over several hours, Mishi and Kayed listened and responded to one another—at times working to diffuse tension as they discussed the history of the Palestine-Israel situation, as well as their personal experiences regarding their homeland.

One event. Two perspectives. Both with merit. How do we find resolution? This question came up again and again in our discussion.

Just to give you a glimpse into this dilemma, one of the issues that both our guests felt strongly about was the broken peace negotiations in 2000 at Camp David, when Chairman Yasser Arafat and Prime Minister Ehud Barak met with President Bill Clinton.
