Young peace activists from across the Middle East -- who until now have only
interacted virtually via a Facebook group -- finally met each other face-to-face
this past weekend, vowing to bring normalcy back to the region and stand up to
all critics of peace.Part of the Yala Young Leadership initiative, which
was set up just over a year ago by Israelis and Palestinians, the conference
brought together 18 of the most active 162,000 Facebook members in the group.
Participants came from Israel, the Palestinian territories, Tunisia, Algeria,
Lebanon, Egypt, Sudan, Iraq and Kuwait.
