You are free to go – but some people aren’t that lucky

The world is consisting of frontiers, which is weird enough. Birds could just fly easily above a border and don’t care about walls and checkpoints, nor passports and permissions.

Flashmob: Dancing together for Peace (Sign Language Song)

Sometimes just a small action can lead to a new understanding. A group of Arabs and Jews dance to Meir Banai’s „Shafshaf’s Song“ in sign language in Tel Aviv’s first shopping mall (Dizengoff Center).

Non violent ways to stand up for your rights

One of the main prejudices against Palestines is, that they only are able or only willing to use violence to prove their point.
