Hudna – Hope for the Middle East is an Israeli-Palestinian initiative whose aim is to halt the bloodshed in our region.
We propose a two-stage political process:
In the first stage, which we would like to advance as soon as possible, we would like a delegation of distinguished figures to visit our area, a delegation, which would receive the broadest possible international support and meet with the leaders of all the factors involved in the Israeli – Palestinian conflict. We hope that the deligation will be able to crystallize an initial agreement between all the parties, guaranteeing inter alia, a two-year honorable cease-fire (Hudna).
In the second stage, commencing immediately after the signing of the initial Hudna agreement, we propose that the delegation of distinguished figures act vigorously to crystallize a political agreement between the parties.
We are hoping that the delegation will be able to achieve a final peace agreement ending the dispute, which will be acceptable to all the parties. In the event that such an agreement is not obtained, we are of the opinion that agreement can be achieved between the parties for an extrended period – for at least 10 years, and possibly for 30 years. We believe that in the future the aforementioned Hudna may be extended for additional lengthy periods.
To the detailed version of the initiative
The hudna, an ancient Arab custom for resolving conflicts, is not equivalent to a peace treaty but is nonetheless valuable because it does not require an endless political process. Its goal is not to achieve a final resolution to the conflict, rather to bring an end to the bloodshed and to achieve a long-lasting period of calm that will create the conditions conducive to attaining genuine reconciliation. Used successfully for many centuries, the hudna is a well-known and highly respected concept in Arab culture.
The first attempt to achieve a hudna between the Israelis and the Palestinians failed, mainly because at that time (2001-2003), there were many people on both sides who thought they had something to lose from a ceasefire. Seven years and thousands of casualties later, it seems to us that there are now enough people on each side who realize that we all have something to gain from halting the spiral of violence.
The idea of an Israeli-Palestinian hudna has already gained the support and blessings of leaders from across the region, spiritual leaders, academics, politicians and mayors – coming from both the left and the right, from the more moderate to the less so.
The Hudna – Hope for the Middle East initiative is intended to revive this idea.
On this website, you will find a wealth of enlightening information about our initiative from various viewpoints. We hope this initiative will resonate in your heart and that you’ll join us in trying to bring about change. In the near future, we’ll be promoting actions designed to infuse new life into the reconciliation effort. In the meantime, you’ll find a platform here for the free expression of opinions and for productive multicultural dialogue.
The website appears in three languages – Arabic, Hebrew and English – with the intention of reaching people of all nationalities and walks of life, and gaining widespread public support.
