    Advice to gardeners.  Tend your love like a tender drink trim it back to give it vigor train its tendrils to give it form and symmetry Love cries for care but yearns for freedom. Whether from neglect or boldness you drop the pruning shears loose the knots your tame garden will leap to to boundless jungle. We build You palaces for our prayers but You sneak out the back door to make Your home in the cracks of pavement. We bring you poems but You cling to whispers. We court you with grand gestures You prefer little acts of love. Your greatness is made known in Your humility.

    Understanding Conflict

    The Israeli–Palestinian conflict is the ongoing struggle between Israeli and Palestine that began in the mid-20th century. The origins to the conflict can be traced back to Jewish Immigration and sectarian conflict in Mandatory over the previous lands know as Palestine. It has been referred to as the world's "most intractable conflict", with the ongoing Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip reaching 52 years.  Despite a long-term peace process and the general reconciliation of Israel with Egypt and Jordan, Israelis and Palestinians have failed to reach a final peace agreement. The key issues are: mutual recognition, borders, security, water rights, control of Holy Land of Jerusalem, freedom of movement and refugees right on return.  The violence of the conflict, in a region rich in sites of historic, cultural and religious interest worldwide, has been the object of numerous international conferences dealing with historic rights, security issues and human rights, and has been a factor hampering tourism in and general access to areas that are hotly contested.

    Miko Peled is a writer and activist born and raised in Jerusalem. Driven by a personal family tragedy to explore Palestine, its people and their narrative he has written a book about his journey called “The General’s Son, Journey of an Israeli in Palestine.” Miko will be discussing Gaza as a part of the larger issue of occupied Palestine.

    Abby Martin is an American citizen, journalist and presenter of the web series "The Empire Files". In her new film "Gaza Fights For Freedom" with the collaboration between The Empire Files and a team of Palestinian videographers in Gaza she shows exclusive coverage from The Great March of Return.
