Shortwave | Lovers in a Dangerous Time

Palestine Loves Israel FB Campaign

 

 

The Barenaked Ladies hit seemed like the right tone for this episode of Shtetl on the Shortwave.  At a time of war how do people continue to hope for peace? On this episode we talk to two people who take small, but brave steps towards a so-called enemy.

 

 

 

We’ll speak live with Zane Caplansky of Caplansky’s Deli in Toronto. The Jewish restaurant owner is sponsoring a screening at The Toronto Palestine Film Festival.

Caplansky is sponsoring an outdoor screening of "Leila's Birthday" at The Toronto Palestine Film Festival.

We’ll also speak with Joujou, a 31 year-old Palestinian living in Germany who started the increasingly popular Facebook campaign “Palestine Loves Israel” which brings together Israelis and Palestinians online and believes that even during a time of war, the two peoples, Muslims & Jews, Palestinians and Israelis…need to be friends. Need to know each other, and need to show compassion for one another. (The image used for this episode is based on a graphic from their Facebook campaign.)

This is one of many images from the "Palestine Loves Israel" Facebook campaign where you can read posts and see images that highlight the humanity of everyone involved in the conflict.
