"On June 5, 1967, I was a student at the American University of Beirut majoring in English literature. That morning, I woke early to finish a research paper on James Joyce’s “Ulysses.” As had been my habit, I turned on the BBC News. I discovered, to my horror, that war had broken out back home."

A new atmosphere of brotherhood for peace - We still believe in humanity, in its strong spirit.
"The two of us were born into the previous reality, the one before 1967. The first was born a refugee, distant from his land. The other was the son of refugees in their new state. One was born into the euphoria of independence and the other into the tragedy of his nation and family."
