"Imagine what kind of relationship a traumatized couple would have. I think this is the case with the Israeli and Palestinian societies. Honest leaders should do as much as they can to show their societies the trauma the other side is suffering, because this conflict is not only about borders, it's about traumas. Both societies have different traumas."
After his mandatory army service, Ariel Huler trained in conflict management at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He worked with young people in the field of the religious-secular divide among Israeli Jews prior to working at Seeds of Peace. Ariel first worked at Seeds of Peace Camp in the United States, where Israeli and Palestinian teenagers (as well as groups from different conflict regions) live together, have fun, and participate in coexistence dialogue sessions every day. Along with a Palestinian partner, Ariel was a facilitator in these dialogue sessions. He now works at the Seeds of Peace Center for Coexistence in Jerusalem, where the young people who have attended camp continue to participate in year-long programs.
