Welcome to this week’s newsletter.

This week's program is going to be another personal best for us as we celebrate my favorite group of people in the world. I met the man they call the champion of Tourism4Peace Forum (T4PF), Janos Damon, through my good friend Rafi Baeri at the Dan Hotel in Jerusalem in 2005. I'll never forget, we were having breakfast with the delegates of the American Tourism Society; our table was small and outside the main circle
of tables.


Sandy and (L to R)
Raed S. Saadeh, President, Arab (Palestinian) Hotel Association, Rafi Baeri, VP Marketing and Sales Dan Hotels Corp. (Israel), Janos Damon, Executive Director, Israel Hotel Managers
Association (Israel),
and Abdul Hakeem Al-Hindi, General Manager, Jordanian Hospitality and Tourism Education Company.

 Beside me, Rafi spoke of this small new group of dedicated and very prestigious travel experts from Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Palestine who work toward facilitating border crossings and obtaining freedom of movement of tourists and tourism professionals in the area. It took me another half a minute to realize I wanted to contribute in anyway we could professionally and personally. Instead of me breaking out into song, I ask that you look at the Web site, that I had the fortune of designing and building for the Forum at: www.Tourism4Peace.com and see for yourself. The site officially launched this week. It is not a Van Gogh, but it is easy to navigate and will give you the information you need to understand more about the incredible group of people I have the honor to call dear friends. I participated in the T4PF in Holland last year at The Hague (a true symbol of peace) and then at the CHN University in Leeuwarden, Holland (where the University became very involved and will hold another week long conference for the T4PF this January).  And again we met this summer in Jordan at the Dead Sea. The country of origin of each member is not important, but what is important is the respect and true friendship that we all experience as we work together and continue the efforts of peace. Its interesting to me, as a Southern CA native with European parents, but nevertheless, this group of Egyptians, Israelis, Jordanians and Palestinians are reminders of my own background.  Perhaps it's because my father left his country after a terrible war and he felt the poverty and strife enough to not want to return. These people live in an area that is torn apart more from the press than actual conflict, no matter though; the perception can be negative. These four countries and its’ entire region are important to the religion, history and archeology. It is a privilege to visit this precious area of the globe.

It seems to me that the new Israeli Tourism byline works for the entire region, it goes something like; “Once you go, you will never be the same”, maybe that’s because world peace begins with our on personal peace, and there is no better place to find personal peace than the holy lands. Please come join me in celebrating Tourism4Peace and welcoming Janos Damon to TravelTalkRADIO. The Peres Peace Center has already obtained  generous donations to the Tourism4Peace Forum and is continuing to seek further donations. Please consider making a donation to help making this organization realize their dream.
See you in Sunday from noon to 2pm Eastern Time for another exciting show!

Safe Travels,

Sandy
