TV: “Let’s Meet Our Arab Neighbors”

Although the whole world is interconnected in many ways, most Americans do not know enough about Arab culture, and most Americans don’t have enough friends from countries in the Arab world. If we did, we would be more likely to make peace instead of war.

The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s September 2012 TV program is an enjoyable conversation with people whose roots are in different countries within the Arab world. We’ll learn something of Arab culture. And we’ll sow the seeds of peace.

Locally, the Olympia-based Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace and Justice does a lot of good work, so we express appreciation for them.  Contact them at (360) 754-3998 or www.RachelCorrieFoundation.org

One of the most popular signs we hold at the Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s peace vigils says, “All people are one human family.” The US would be better off as a nation if we had better understanding and appreciation for other cultures, including Arab cultures.
