Jews, Arabs together for peace

This video says about itself:

20 October 2015

A cafe owner in the Israeli town of Netanya is offering a 50% discount to Jews and Arabs who decide to eat together. He believes that hummus is a cross cultural dish that both communities enjoy, and wants to use it as a symbol of commonality and peace.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Israeli left rallies for peaceful solution

Monday 26th October

JEWISH and Arab Israeli citizens held a rally for peace and an end to the occupation of Palestine in Haifa last night.

The demonstration followed Saturday evening’s march through Tel Aviv from Rabin Square to the Defence Ministry.

Both events were backed by the Communist Party, Israel’s only political party which has both Jewish and Arab members.

Saturday’s march was organised by campaign group Peace Now.

“Only a political process that will lead to the end of our control over millions of Palestinians will end the bloody conflict between the two peoples and allow Israelis and Palestinians to live in peace and quiet.

“The only way to prevent further deterioration is through a two-state solution,” the group stated ahead of the demo, which was attended by about 6,000 people.

Peace Now chairman Yariv Oppenheimer told the crowds that Benjamin Netanyahu’s far-right government had turned Israel into a “violent, racist and hopeless” country.
