#0202_A_View_From_West_Jerusalem

“Together, Jews and Arabs, we handed out flowers of peace to residents and visitors in the Old City. We were surprised by the warm reactions from Arabs who joined us, and religious Jews who were delighted by the gesture. We discovered that the city’s residents, and the many Christians visitors who arrived for Palm Sunday [1] yearn for peace and hope.”

– Tag Meir: Light instead of Terror [2]

[Selected Comments:]
– “How do you join? I also want to hand out flowers!”
