Visit of Leymah Gbowee

Friday 21 October 2016

In the framework of an occasion organized by the Women Wage Peace organization, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Leymah Gbowee of Women of Liberia Mass Action for Peace visited Wahat al-Salam – Neve Shalom and met with Chairperson of the Association of Educational Associations Samah Salaime. Samah presented her with a plate with the village name as a souvenir of her visit.

Leymah Gbowee said at the event:

"If you’re not serious about peace, stop it... if you’re not ready, don’t start - this is not an easy process. When you decide to wage peace, you must go all out."

Samah Salaime said at the event:

"Hostility, hatred and racism are rising up all around. Every one of us is sure that we and our children deserve a better place to live, a place where Palestinian is seen as equal to Jew, a place that sanctifies human beings rather than land, a place where brotherhood and justice prevail, where both peoples can live in dignity and peace. We women do not have children to spare for unnecessary wars. We have no room in our hearts for fear, and we have seen enough blood."
