The elephant in the room

ChickPeace supported a joint Muslim and Jewish theatre Peace Lab this weekend.

The interfaith theatre group MUJU put on a performance and workshop around the theme of peace.

The idea was that Jews and Muslims came together to discuss their differences and find common ground, particularly on the Israel-Gaza conflict.

The Middle East is the obvious elephant in the room between the two communities, but the attached image, compiled at the event, shows concerns both sides have.

Obviously there are other nuances in the Middle East conflict, but events like the Peace Lab are important, especially amid rising anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, as it shows Muslims and Jews can live beside eachother and work together.
