Non-Violent Activist in Jerusalem

What do you believe are key factors for choosing and staying with nonviolent methods?

The insight of nonviolent methods as the only possible strategy left.

There is right now no other realistic alternative than to use various non-violent methods to speak up against oppression and to inform on violations of human rights and national law regardless of side in conflict. Leadership and organization of non-violent resistance is the only possible way. Arms is no realistic possible choice.

Do you feel hope? What hope can you see?

I feel saddened by the daily reports and honestly it is hard to believe in two state solution as settlements in West Bank is cutting off the possibility for Palestinians to build a state or to have east Jerusalem as a capital in future Palestinian State.

The conflict can only be solved by international sanctions, boycotts and international pressure conflict.

Still, people somehow manage to survive, and perhaps, I am not sure, you can feel some kind of hope in that.
