Why would you rather see 2 men holding guns than holding hands?
#JewsAndArabsRefuseToBeEnemies is a social media campaign that aims to promote love and peace between both Jews and Arabs, Christians and Muslims despite the current conflict.
The campaign was launched by Abraham Gutman (Jewish) and Dania Darwish (Arab), both students at Hunter College in New York, immediately after the start of Operation Protective Edge in Gaza - and this week it gained momentum.
We are use to the images of violence, tears, fear and war that is reported in mainstream media. But this shows a different story. It shows that people are different and love can over look any difference. Love can break down the strongest wall.
Please re - blog. Don’t spread hatred. Spread love.
"If they bombed your mosque, commence your prayers in our churches"

- Saint Porphyrius church in Gaza has become a shelter of some 500 displaced Muslims who lost their homes due to bombing of Israeli forces. They now pray alongside Christians while Hundreds of Iraqi Christian families who fled their homes in Mosul after given ultimatum by ISIS are welcomed in Imam Ali Mosque in Najaf.
The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.
