Sulome Anderson, die Dame, deren Tweet in den vergangenen Tagen zum Symbolbilder der #JewsAndArabsRefuseToBeEnemies-Meme wurde, schreibt im NYMag über die Hintergründe:

In the days leading up to the war, mounting tension between Israel and Hamas was a frequent topic of discussion between Jeremy and me. These discussions often turned into arguments and sometimes flat-out fights. Jeremy took issue with my assumptions about Israelis; I couldn’t understand why he seemed to place more emphasis on Israeli lives than Palestinian ones. But as he eventually revealed to me, he’d witnessed a bus bombing during his time in Israel. He had seen that violence from the other side.

As the region exploded into war, we started to come closer together in our opinions given the fact that we both share critical values: respect and concern for human life. I showed him some of the heart-wrenching photos coming out of Gaza; most people can’t see those tiny, broken bodies without feeling pain and regret for their short lives and the violence that took them.

I’m not saying we reach a consensus on everything now. But we do agree on something: This isn’t just about politics. This is about people.
