The walls at the Max Rayne Hand in Hand school in Jerusalem, located along the Green Line in the city’s southwest, are draped with hand-painted murals, squiggly sketches, and paper cutouts around words like “dignity”—but, like everything else at the school, it’s written twice: once in Hebrew, kavod, and once in Arabic, karam. Each class is run by two teachers, one Jewish and one Arab, and the 600 students are split evenly between Israeli Jews and Arabs.
Perhaps only when we think that things cannot get worse, they get better.
Still, this read with the previous post helps separate two inclinations in the middle east and those who have those inclinations.
Perhaps we are choosing between peaceful global multicultural co-evolution and something quite opposite.
