Jews and Arabs refuse to be enemies.
Far too often, when tensions escalate in Israel-Palestine, we divide ourselves into camps, into tribes. It becomes a zero-sum game. For me to win, you must lose.
This is not only false, it is a manipulation tactic by those in power, seeking to keep Jews and Arabs not only separated but seeing one another as enemies, dehumanizing the other.
This helps the minority in power - by keeping us divided, they can maintain a status quo of occupation and systemic inequity. But we are the majority.
We know that by working together, supporting Jews and Arabs fighting for a better future in Israel-Palestine, listening to one another, and holding multiple truths we can create a future of shared struggle, shared resistance, and shared society.
