Jews and Arabs refuse to be enemies: Social media campaign goes viral

The Dancing Rest

#JewsAndArabsRefuseToBeEnemies

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.

“For me, it is hard to watch the current escalation between Israel and Gaza from afar. I wanted to find a way to be more than a passenger, to do something about it rather than just watch the news and hope for the best,” Gutman told Christian Science monitor.

Abraham and Dania took a photo of themselves in Washington Square Park. They started a Facebook group and by now have been flooded with photos from around the world. The page has more than 5,000 fans.  via [RTNews]

  2. There’s a great TV show on my local public station called Arab Labor… a comedy about Arabs living in Israel just living their ordinary lives every day… wish everybody could see it.
