Btw, this sort of cooperative enterprise is far better for bringing peace than the divisive politics found in, for example, BDS or Caryl Churchill's play. I also think there's been an overemphasis on getting Israelis to acknowledge the Palestinian Nakba narrative, which most Israelis today do recognize, without much of an effort to really get Palestinians to acknowledge and recognize the Jewish narratives (many of which are still inchoate and yet to be fully articulated). Acknowledgment and recognition are not the same as agreement, but they are important, especially for the oppressed. It's about accepting the humanity of others.
