Peace X Peace is proud to launch a new video series called Catalyst: Voices of Israeli and Palestinian Women. The videos lift up hopeful voices of Palestinians and Israelis during this time of dynamic confrontation. Hope and despair have taken turns in the Middle East through the Oslo Accords of 1993, two intifadas, the building of the separation wall, a blockade, the killing of more than 1300 Gazans in January 2009, and a financial upturn in Ramallah in the West Bank.
