    How to make our Voices Heard

    Hello There :)
    I am an Egyptian peace activist that works on the Israeli/Arab conflict resolution and Interfaith Dialogue between Muslims & Jews.
    I work with an Israeli Peace movement called YaLa Young leaders initiated by The Peres peace center in Tel Aviv for almost 3 years now, this is the link to our FB page https://www.facebook.com/yalaYL

    I also Blog for the Jerusalem Post for more than 2 years now, Yeah I know it sounds weird for an Egyptian to write a for an Israeli Right wing paper but I made a good name for myself through these 3 years, the link to my writings at the J Post http://blogs.jpost.com/users/egypts-missing-peace

    I have attended Peace conferences outside of Egypt, my latest was attending the Annual Moroccan Jewish Caravan and had a historic opportunity to meet with Mr Andrea Azolay at his office in the Royal Palace, He is the Senior Advisor to the King Morocco. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andr%C3%A9_Azoulay

    I had my fair share of troubles here in Egypt because of what I do but when you ask around they will all tell you how determinant I am in my beliefs of peace & interfaith dialogue.

    I only had a one Live Interview on Al Hurra channel about my Activism, this is the link to my interview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LL-_q3XMM4s

    Through my 3 years of my work I have seen & experienced wonderful stories and sad ones too that I really would love to express and show it to the whole world to prove that there is a real hope for Peace that can lead to real coexistence between Israelis and Arabs.

    Please review my work and I am ready to be interviewed so we can show the world some Hope and convince some to join me and my friends to achieve what we dream of.
    Thank you
    Ahmed Meligy, Egypt :)
