I came across your website while doing some research for a project I am working
on for the non-profit organization "Breaking the Ice". As activists for mutual
respect and understanding between all peoples, we share the same vision as you
for a peaceful world where everyone lives in harmony. Congratulations on the
wonderful work you are doing!
Our approach at Breaking the Ice is to bring people of opposing viewpoints
together and put them into situations where they must learn to depend on and
trust one another. Last year, a group of 4 Israelis and 4 Palestinians trekked
for 30 days across Antarctica, climbed a mountain that had never been climbed
before, and claimed it in the name of peace.
This year we are going on a journey through the Middle East with people of
various nationalities and religions, beginning in Jerusalem and ending in
Tripoli, Libya. We have the gracious endorsements of the Dalai Lama, Kofi Annan,
Shimon Peres, Michael Gorbachev, and King Abdullah of the Heshemite Kingdom of
Our goal is to bring a story of hope to the rest of the world. Breaking the Ice
is currently recruiting candidates for our 2006 Journey to the Sahara
expedition. I would very much like to know more about you and your background,
and discuss the possibility of your participation on our journey.
You can reach me with any of the contact information below. Please let me know
the best way to contact you.
Wishing you peace always,
Chief Operating Officer

Dear Adam Rice,
Sorry to be late in my reply, I was in Roumiah prison, the police arrested
me at 31/Aug in the office of the UNHCR because I was photographing the
