For First Time In San Diego, Israeli And Palestinian Teens Work For Peace

As conflict rages in the Middle East, 45 Israeli and Palestinian teenagers visiting the United States came together along the Mexican border Wednesday to work for peace.

Hands of Peace has been bringing young Middle Easterners to the United States for more than 11 years. This was the group’s first time in San Diego.

At Border Field State Park, in the shadow of the international border fence, the teens listened to Roman Catholic priest Dermot Rodgers talk about his life growing up in Belfast, Ireland, a city divided by fences.
