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 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.)
Thanks for tuning in! Music in this episode by Gonzales, The Barenaked Ladies, Sandaara (playing this August 27th at the Montreal Jewish Music Festival), Corinna Rose, and the Shtetl theme song by Krista Muir.
