Thanks for reporting this KPBS, it was encouraging to hear Congressman Peters is there, on the ground, ready to listen and learn from both Israeli's and Palestinians. Having recently traveled there myself, what is seen on the ground there is quite different than what the American media typically reports, especially when engaging with the realities of everyday life there. I hope Congressman Peters sees and experiences the true reality of that region, from *both* the Israeli and Palestinian perspectives. There are bright people living there, brave individuals—both israeli and Palestinian—already deeply engaged in issues of peace-making from a grass-roots level. Most experts there know that any real chance at lasting peace must include Israeli/Palestinian grass-roots peace-making effort already underway, not just a top-down political one. I hope he meets some of those individuals and learns from their experience.
