More about:

Ever heard of TED Talks - the ones where one inspiring person shares a big idea and it's shared on the internet for the whole world to see? The talks can be on any subject: the common theme is the passion the individual brings to their subject.

 

RNW was invited to join in the making of a TEDx - where x = independently produced under license from TED. The theme: the future of peace and justice. The date: September 9.

 

The buzz: enormous - our hashtag #tedxhagueacademy made number 6 on twitter worldwide trends that day. The result: nine new TED talks that you can see on our website tedxhagueacademy.org, including a talk by the woman in charge of RNW's Love Matters India project, Vithika Yadav. Please watch them and be inspired.

Universal declaration of Human rights are denied to the Palestinians and crimes against humanity by Israel - Zionists are ignored. Consider that the destruction of a country reduces it's military might.. this explains the destruction of Iraq, Lebanon, and now Syria. Please promote peace and justice for the Palestinians, and recognize Zionist's crimes.

I don't see what your comment has to do with this article. Besides being misplaced, it rings like poorly sourced piece of Islamist propaganda.
You ignore the fact that the Universal Declaration of Rights is flouted by every Islamic state. Non Muslims are routinely harassed out of these countries, and Palestinians are often denied citizenship in other Arabic lands. Palestinians face far more hardship from Islamists' bombing attacks than from Israelis.
In Israel there are 3 mainstream Palestinian parties, 2 with seats in the Knesset. That's 2 more parties than in most about any Islamic states.
According to a 2011 survey by the Palestinian Center for Public Opinion, "nearly half of East Jerusalemites would prefer to become citizens of Israel rather than a new Palestinian state".
