SORT BY Relevancy
World peace depends critically on two things: Justice in Palestine and democracy in America. Both depend on governments of, by and for all of the People, not for a chosen few. There is a misperception that to be Jewish is to be Zionist, supporting a Jewish state in Palestine. That is not true. Many American Jews understand that a Zionist state cannot be democratic and stand with Palestinians, calling for justice for all. Americans must understand that Zionism and American imperialism are the two excuses for terrorism and the "War on Terror" justifying war for corporate Empire. When they do, they must act to compel Israel to decide whether to negotiate for a just peace or continue to follow a course that is the real existential threat to Israel. We must listen to Israelis who at great personal risk are calling for for an end to the apartheid state. They risk approbation, prison and personal threats for speaking out against the right wing policies of the US government. They must compel Israelis to choose justice for Palestinians instead of a course of action that is the real existential threat to their nation. Our guest on April 2 was Miko Peled, son of a former IDF general turned peace activist, grandson of a signer of the Israeli Declaration of Independence and the author of The General's Son. This show was broadcast on April 6 at 10 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio network.
Take Back America for the People is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to reveal to the American public the true costs of corporate control of the US government.
Today we talked with Rich Forer, author of Breakthrough: Transforming Fear Into Compassion, A New Perspective on the Israel-Palestine conflict.
If you are one of the 99 percenters who believe that peace in the Mideast is impossible, you may change your mind by the end of this podcast.
Rich is an American Jew who grew up a reflexive supporter of the Israeli government, as were most of his Jewish friends. After the second Lebanon invasion he briefly became a member of AIPAC.
His eyes were opened when a Jewish friend persuaded him to look at the side of the story not told by religious conservatives, the Israeli government or the corporate media in the US.
Telling the true history of the creation of Israel and the occupation of Palestine, Forer approaches these uncomfortable topics by citing primarily Jewish sources, including many Israelis who served in the military and the Israeli government, Rich hopes to get American Jews and Christians to take an objective look at the real history of the conflict and at where Israel's true security interests lie.
Forer also describes his personal transformation by letting go of an identity that was sharply circumscribed by his conditioned belief in what it means to be a Jew.
He describes an exhilarating sense of liberation when he abandoned this notion of separateness from the rest of humanity. His story if thus about how he became a Soldier For Peace in the full sense of the term.
SFPI Radio is the international talk show designed to allow those struggling for social justice around the world to talk to each other about how we can support efforts to promote justice, democracy and peace throughout the world.
Know the truth and the truth will set us free.
"50 SALT IS GOOD: BUT IF THE SALT HAVE LOST HIS SALTNESS, WHEREWITH WILL YOU SEASON IT, HAVE SALT IN YOURSELVES, AND HAVE PEACE ONE WITH ANOTHER MARK 9:50"
"14 GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST, AND ON EARTH PEACE, GOOD WILL TOWARDS MEN.
29 LORD, NOW LETTEST THOU THY SERANT DEPART IN PEACE, ACCORANCE TO THY WORD: LUKE 2:14, 29"
Many ideas have been created when the author, inventor, or creator is at peace. When the mind is stressful, one cannot think clearly or hear clearly, and the small still voice cannot be heard. Just think if George Washington Carver had not gotten up at 4am to take a walk of solitude, we would not have the great inventions from the peanut. If Joel Olsteen did not spend quiet time with God, we would have books to encourage us to continue this walk. Yes, we need our peace to maintain a productive life, however, the products of our peace is not just for us. It is for our childen, generations to come, our friends, family, co-workers, and those who God puts in our path. Our peace will help us encourage others to develop their gifts and talents.
Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give - pleasure, possessions, power - but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy. -Dada Vaswani

There’s a peace we discover when we get into touch with our authentic being. In our world in which a “war against” something is around every corner, it’s a great idea to know we can experience peace, and that it’s found right inside of us! Christopher Papadopoulos offers the steps of his own journey in finding peace, helping us each to start our New Year in that peace. Remember: “The way something starts out, it tends to continue.” Come start your New Year with us, peacefully, to set yourself up for a peaceful life all year long!
Ready to Quit All the “Wars,” and Find Peace, Instead? There are a lot of wonderful things we can learn from high school teachers! This week, we’ve got one on our show. Christopher Papadopoulos shifted his consciousness, permanently, in 2003, leaving anxious thoughts behind and helping him shift to inner peace, forever. I’m excited to find out what he did, and try it myself. Come along.
