The Second Conference starts...

The conference is now in full swing. Last night Avram Burg spoke mentioning among other things that if both the Arabs and Jews can't get out from the domination of a small minority in each of their respective communities that is determining its relationship with the other side, we are in for trouble.

Also I heard there is more then one blogger (me) at this years conference. Fantastic! The more the better.

1st Posting for the Second Conference...

Before our 2nd conference begins the New York Times has an article on recent events in East Jerusalem.  Given our efforts there last conference (we helped to pay for recreating a house that was demolished), it looks like interesting times are ahead.  The story is entitled "New Tensions in Jerusalem's Arab Neighborhoods" can be found here.
