“I am here with my partner, Rabbi Marc Schneier, my representative for The Organization for Ethnic Understanding,” says Simmons. “We are here for peace and to discuss the importance of dialogue between the Muslim people and the Jewish people. The Rabbi and I met with Nir Barkat, the mayor of Jerusalem yesterday at a meeting for The Organization for Ethnic Understanding which promotes positive relationships between Muslims and Jews.”

Simmons and Rabbi Schneier hope to gain the support of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Abbas. The two have already received a positive response from President Shimon Peres.
