This Video Of Jewish And Arab Kissing Is Banned For No Reason

Recently, people began to develop a new form of disapproval for the Israeli government as a book was banned from being taught to students. Apparently, the book should not be taught in schools because it contained love story between a Jewish and an Arab individual. Well, apparently the Israeli government does not want the people to realize that people could be friends or even lovers, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender or whatever.

To protest the Israel government's disapproval of the book to be learned by students in the class, a video project was made to show that there is nothing wrong with a kiss between an Arab and a Jewish person.

Check out the story below and see how love knows no boundaries.

First of all, this is Naftali Bennet who is the Minister of Education in Israel. Moreover, he is a prime member of the government's coalition, aside from being a party leader intent on expanding the settlement of Jewish people in the West Bank.

The book titled "Gader Haya" was written by Dorit Rabinyan. In English, the novel is known as "Borderlife" and it was supposed to be added to Israel's secondary school curriculum.

The novel was not approved because the Ministry of Education believed that the book criticized the liberal-left of the Israeli politics. Moreover, the government said that the book depicted a story of love that was impossible.

An impossible love story?

Apparently, the Israeli government does not believe that love could not possibly develop between an Israeli academic and a Palestinian artist named Liat and Hilmi, respectively. The two characters in the novel met each other and began to fall in love in New York City.

Israel's Ministry of Education noted that the novel could be used for advanced classes, but using it for regular reading courses were not allowed. What was more alarming was that the Israeli government could not imagine a good relationship to foster between Israelis and Palestinians.

In response to the ban, which even teachers said was racist, TimeOut Tel Aviv decided to make a video in which two people, composed of an Arab and a Jew, would kiss and show that they can be united and that they could display love.

Sadly, the video on the Facebook page of TimeOut Tel Aviv is already gone, and Facebook already said that they were not the ones responsible. Still, their video project shows that Jews and Arabs can get along with each other, whether they are straight, gay, or simply just friends.

The video is still available on YouTube

What do you think? Is peace between Jews and Arabs really impossible to achieve? Perhaps, the world just needs more love and less hate.
