On March 30, 2004 The News & Observer reported, "The cycle of bloodshed in the Middle East can give the impression that few Israelis and Palestinians are talking. But today, three women from the region with different religious beliefs will tell Triangle residents that dialogue is possible. 'Not all are advocating violence,' said one of the women, Nura Khoury, 41, of Bethlehem. 'There are still some who are sitting down and talking.' The women -- a Christian, a Jew and a Muslim -- are the key speakers in the seventh 'Jerusalem women speak: Three women, three faiths, one shared vision.' The speaking tour of the Southeastern United States began this month. It is organized by Partners for Peace, a Washington, D.C.-based group that supports an end to Israel's occupation of territories seized during the 1967 Six-Day War."
