Suhad - Member of the 'Palestinian Medical Relief Society' , Qalqilya
What is your motivation to work towards peace?
Doing tours for foreigners when they come to visit Qalqilya is not a job to me, it's a kind of struggle against the apartheid wall, against the racism we suffer, to be beside my people and to explain to the foreigners what is going on on the ground.
What is your vision for the future?
This conflict is the responsibility of the two people, the Palestinian people and the Israeli people. It is better for both of us, to accept each other but the Israeli government must respect us, there should be the rule of law, we should have our independence - a Palestinian state with borders and with freedom like all other states. We can only treat the Israelis in a normal way and we can only accept them when they do not treat us as people of second class or as slaves. As long as they are confiscating our land, as long as they are not treating us like human beings, good relations will be impossible. Only when justice comes can people live together
