Ronit, 27, is an Israeli citizen living in Jerusalem. Most Israeli women her age, she points out, have already served two years in the military as required by law. Joline is a 24-year-old Palestinian also living in Jerusalem. Her family cannot visit her because the Israeli government restricts where Palestinians can travel. Against all odds, the two women are friends, and they've started working together to the end conflict in their homeland. Their goal, says Joline, is for people to "stop choosing sides and start working for resolutions."

Their organization JustVision.org raises awareness about Palestinians and Israelis who are building a base for peace in the Middle East through educational resources and documentary film. Visit www.justvision.org to learn more.
