Jews and Arabs refuse to be enemies

As Egypt attempts to broker an extended ceasefire in Gaza after 15 days of fighting that has resulted in more than 620 deaths, some Israelis and Palestinians are taking to social media to show their desire for an end to the bloodiest conflict between the two warring sides in 15 years.

Israelis and Palestinians of all ages are posting photos of themselves with messages that project beauty, hope and despair.

The hash tag #JewsandArabsRefuseToBeEnemies was propelled by a photo taken by Arab-American journalist Sulome Anderson, kissing her Jewish boyfriend, Jeremy.
