JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Activists on Friday disrupted and cut short a joint Palestinian-Israeli conference in an East Jerusalem hotel, a Ma'an reporter said.

The activists demonstrated in front of the Ambassador hotel, accusing the conveners of advocating "normalization" with the Israeli occupation. They managed to enter the conference hall, where they interrupted the opening statement by chanting slogans.

There was a verbal confrontation between conference participants and activists, forcing participants to leave the hotel and cut the conference short.

The conference, entitled Ordinary People Make History, was organized by the Israeli-Palestinian organization Minds of Peace. The participants include former members of the Israeli army and Israeli settlers, in addition to Palestinian ex-prisoners, security officers, and businessmen.

Activists attempted to break up the first meeting of the same conference in Ramallah on Thursday, but were prevented from entering the conference by Palestinian police.

They chanted slogans and held signs outside the conference.

"Normalization is treason," signs read. "Inside this hall sits Israeli officers who killed our children."

Time for the activists to get a reality check. Either the present situation goes on indefinitely or change comes that results in a Palestine and in some manner of normalized relations between Palestine and Israel. Which do they prefer?
