Jews and Palestinians Working together. Playing Together. Thats the path of peace

The real path of peace has never been Boycotts, Divestments and Sanction. The real path of peace ,as difficult as it may sound, is more interactions- more cultural and economic ties. Greater interdependence.

I'm not the only one who feels this way

From YNET:
In Israel Bowl IV, the majority of players on Judean Rebels football team are "settlers" from the settlements, but team's real stars are four Arab cousins.

"We play as a team and leave our personal stuff on the side. If they can do it, I can, too," said Musa Elayyan, a 21-year-old Rebels defensive lineman from the West Bank city of Ramallah who grew up in the United States and goes by the nickname "Moose." "Once you've played together you create a bond, especially on a successful team."

American football is still an afterthought on the Israeli sporting scene, it has steadily gained ground in recent years. This year's Israel Bowl attracted more than 1,000 fans and was broadcast live on the Israeli sports channel.
