OneVoice Israel collaborated with student organizations at Tel Aviv University to put on the first regional IEP event, bringing OneVoice Palestine youth leaders to speak before Israeli students.
There were around 25-30 participants at the event, many of them OV supporters. The crowed was very silent during the presentations; they were very thirsty to know the background of these students. It was a moving experience for the Israeli students to meet people from the other side who speak about the future in such a constructive way. Questions from the audience were regarding what normal life in Palestine is like, how relations with Hamas work, the details of the PA security force in Jenin, and the reaction of the general Palestinian public to the work of OVP.
One student in the audience said that if it was between he and the OVP leaders, the conflict could be solved in one hour.
More meetings like this one will be organized in the coming months - the next will be at the Herzliya IDC.
