Artists, writers, film producers and play directors, among others, made up the diverse crowd.

Ernest Jackson, my publicist, and his assistant created the atmosphere and beautifully orchestrated the event.  Here is one of their many photos taken of the event:

Talk/Discussion/Book Signing, 2011-2012

Sunday, Nov. 18, 2012, Abu-Gosh, Jerusalem


Here I’m standing with Paula Kasparian, Olivier Sayyada, Ibrahim Ahmad Abu El-Hawa and others of “Artisans de Paix,” following a beautifully inspiring mass at the Benedictine monastery in Abu-Gosh, Jerusalem. I was invited to lunch by Olivier Sayyada of “Artisans de Paix,” an active interreligious group from France. To break bread with such a diverse, enlightened group was an unforgettable honor. During lunch, I was invited to say a few words about my interfaith activities in Israel and Palestine, which are chronicled in my book “Love and Terror in the Middle East,” 3rd Edition.

Sunday, Nov. 18, 2012, 7 pm, Yafa Café and Bookshop, Yehuda Marguza 33, Jaffa, Israel, OFFICIAL RELEASE event in ISRAEL for the 3rd Edition.


INCREDIBLE author event at Yafa Café and Bookshop, under the ROCKET attacks. On Nov. 18, 2012, about half-way through my author event for “Love and Terror in the Middle East,” 3rd Edition, in Jaffa, Israel, the sirens wailed and we had to take shelter. Within minutes two loud explosions were heard; I was informed that they were rockets intercepted by the Israeli defense system.

After the warning sirens were silenced we returned to the café for the event. . .a reminder of the urgency to keep the peace/freedom dialogues going (the subject of my book)  and to reach out to the world to end this crazy war, to withdraw from this crazy occupation. As you can see, this was pure interfaith with Jews, Muslims and Christians. Help us to keep focused down the lighted cosmic path of unconditional, beautiful love. . .you and me brothers and sisters!
