    Some people believe that what you are doing is actually putting them more in danger. How do you convince people that that's not the case?

    I think that there are people with such strong emotions-especially the bereaved-that you may not be able to convince them. You may be able to convince some of them. But someone who is very, very deeply hurt may not be convinced. But I'm not aiming at them. I think what we should do is not aim at these kind of people who are deeply hurt, we shouldn't aim at leftists either, I don't care much about what extreme leftists would say about our project, because they are so far away from the main core of society, and I don't care much about the extreme right's views on our work, we have to talk to the 80% who are the main core of society, the people who just want the conflict to end. In both societies there is a huge percentage of the population who just want it to end. They don't care how, you know, if it will take killing all of the other side, they will do it-- it's not that they want to do it. They wish that there would be a peaceful solution, so given that there are people who will say to you that you are wrong, okay, I can live with that.
