Video Interview Transcript

At a certain level I discovered that this group Moral Rearmament were organizing dialogue sessions where they brought people from different sides from different political denominations or religious denominations. And where they spoke on an "I" level not "we", we won't. I think. I am. I am afraid of you and things like that. And I join these groups of dialogue and this is where I think I met on a moral and spiritual level the other and I discovered that these or those had names. And that I could use their names to speak of them. And that most of what I have heard about them was wrong. And to my surprise that most of what they heard about me was wrong or us I mean as Christians.
And that they carried part of the truth also. I did not I was not holding the whole truth about the situation in Lebanon and the world. No. I had to adapt some of my theories to what they were saying and later on also my thoughts and my ideas because I discovered good ideas that they had to share and that what they were sharing about how to get out of the situation, how to change Lebanon how to come to reach a real peace and similar things. Later on, I learned how to love these guys and how to work with them. And since then, I think that I have Muslims and even Palestinians as all leftists as good friends and we cooperate also today for a real peace.
