In this complete interview, peaceworker Sami Awad speaks about the power of non-violence as a tool for healing and empowering individuals, communities and nations. Describing his work in the Holy Land, he explains why it is important to recognize those perceptions and interpretations that we have grown up with and to distinguish between them and the real potential of the moment. Awad says that it is most important to work through the heart. He suggests that the Israeli/Palestinian conflict is not unique but a global issue, and that the peace achieved there will also be felt around the world.
