''Growing up in Nazareth, an Arab in a Jewish state, a secular Christian in a traditional Muslim society, a leftist in a Baptist school, I learned firsthand how managing ideological, religious and national differences helps us evolve peacefully. Succumbing to them generates fundamentalism and antagonism. Applying brute force to overcome them-as Israel, my country, has done to my people, the Palestinian Arabs-fails utterly.''
