During my stay in Israel, I have found out that there is a very important and urgent need to build love among religions. I have discussed the matter with a number of colleagues and we all agree. Als0 we found out that Mashav and AIES is capable of attaining trust and understanding between adults like us of different religions to an extent not to be neglected. I suggested that we should not forget that kind of achievement. It shows that it is achievable to build love among adults of different religions. The only question is how to develop such achievement to the global level. Especially between conflicting peoples.
Before I visit Israel, I thought it is very important to develop Humanitarian Entrepreneurs to reduce greed so that to eliminate mistrust and mitigating the causes of conflicts.
So I told my colleagues that I have been dreaming of Developing Humanitarian Entrepreneurs and finding ways to build Love among Religions. So I told my fellow members of Shalom Club Myanmar the same and suggested them to consider my proposed Vision, Mission and Terms of Reference for the Shalom Club Myanmar. Here is my suggestion.…………
The “think alike group” to build trust and understanding between Myanmar and Israel.
“Think alike trust building people” to develop world peace and sustainable development.
To contact all the Myanmar people who have been to Israel and back.
Get together once a while to built trust and friendship among them and beyond.
Coordinate and form working groups to implement projects to strengthen ties between two countries to foster world peace and development.
Terms of Reference to be a member.
Must be a Myanmar citizen.
Must volunteer for the membership.
Must have been to Israel and back with no political nor criminal wrong doing records.
Could volunteer for the active contact person status.
Could participate in the implementation of group projects.
