This is called "The Citizens' Century," and Texas Arabs and Jews together are making it just that.
     "We foster dialogue not debate" says the Web site of their new DIALOGUE FOR PEACE in Austin, Texas.  See it at:


     They are Palestinians, Jews, and others who want to bring peace to the Middle East, the world, and their community.
     They begin Dialogue with respectful listening and compassion. They believe this will take them to a life of
understanding, reconciliation, individual action, and cooperation. To find out more, you can write to the convenor, Bruce Kravitz, at
     The Austin group joins two other Texas Dialogues -- the Tri-faith Dialogue and the Jewish-Palestinian Dialogue, both in San Antionio.
