"At last I gave in, not because I wanted to listen but because I became curious. If they wanted to talk, so be it. I didn't have to understand or feel their pain; I would just listen if they wanted to talk. When they started talking, I realized that they were saying the same things I say only from a different perspective."

Inas Radwan studies hospital management at the American University of Jenin. For the last three years, she has been involved with Building Bridges for Peace, a program which brings young Palestinian, Israeli and American women together for a summer camp in the United States. At home, the Palestinians and Israelis continue to meet through year-long follow-up programs. Inas has been a participant, a leader in training, and a counselor at the camp.
