A former Israeli peace negotiator and founder of the movement said Monday, with the collapse of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, hundreds of thousands of young people across the Middle East are talking reconciliation online. Uri Savir, himself an ex-peace negotiator between Israel and the Palestinians and founder of "Yala Young Leaders," said the size and scope of his group shows that young people in the Middle East want peace. The group will hold an annual virtual peace conference on Sunday that will include video presentations by Nobel Peace laureates Israeli President Shimon Peres and Desmond Tutu as well as senior EU, US and Palestinian officials.
