Two Men Fight For Peace Amidst A Long War

Renewed efforts to start negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians have created a great deal of buzz, but whether these efforts result in real change is still unclear. To discuss the potential for reconciliation are two people who are living everyday, with the consequences of perpetual conflict. Kamel Husseini is a Palestinian from Jerusalem and Yitzhak Frankenthal is an Israeli, whose son was killed by the Palestinian political party and militant group Hamas. They both work for the Fund for Reconciliation, Tolerance, and Peace, a group that tries to help both sides overcome the psychological barriers to making peace.
