Cool Video and all that

A Really Nice video of Pakistani artists coming together to see that Islam does not get hijacked by the radicals. (Link Via. Sepiamutiny )



More details about the song can be found over here.


Also, a news link about a Palestinian educator whose stint in an Israeli jail inspired him to devise a different approach to teaching history.
That was his real education. While awaiting charges, Adwan overheard two Israeli
soldiers arguing over whether he should be made to sign a document in Hebrew
that he couldn’t read. Shocked to hear one of his enemies defending his rights,
Adwan decided that he had some things to learn about the Jewish nation.
So
much of the gulf in understanding that plagues the Middle East has to do with
the willful disregard for the other’s point of view. Israelis refer to the 1948
conflict that gave birth to their nation as the War of Independence;
Palestinians know it as the Nakba, or Catastrophe. What Israelis call “the riots
of 1920"—when Palestinians attacked Jewish neighborhoods around Jerusalem and
Jaffa—are termed “the popular uprisings” by the other side. Adwan, a lecturer at
Bethlehem University, has spent much of his professional career trying to bridge
this gap.
