Well, a nice middle-class one at least.

In this vein, I have launched an initiative on Facebook to enable such communication: YALA – Young Leaders Movement.

In two months, the movement has attracted approximately 35,000 active users per month – thousands of Israelis, Palestinians and Egyptians, hundreds of Jordanians, Tunisians, Moroccans, Saudis and Algerians, communicating with each other; not united in their views, but united in their wishes to see the young lead the way to peace and in their disillusionment with the political leadership, united to take part in what globalization has to offer.

They are planning a virtual peace conference by and for the young of the Middle East, at the beginning of 2012, taking care of their well-being and rights.

Change will have to come about, both in Tel Aviv and in Cairo, by heeding the voices of the Facebook generation.
