A wonderful story. My thanks as well, Mishei.

Note to other potential readers: If you value your sanity and remaining faith in humankind, you might want to not read the talkback replies.

Wow! I hadn't noticed the talkback replies before. Disheartening isn't it? And ironic considering the content of the article above them.

There was a similar story about the family of a Scottish Yeshiva student killed in a suicide bombing who donated the heart and other salvageable organs of the young man - I know the heart went to a Palestinian.

Wonderful story. Can there one day be a return to the Andalusian dream?

Shows that people can be quite compatible. What gets me about the article is the ambiguity of the language. Jews refers to a religious-cultural group, Arabs refers to a language-geographic group. Is it not a bit like saying a catholic from Milan donated his kidney to an Italian from Milan. A Jew can be an Arab and an Arab can be a Jew. Seems to me a lot of insinuated significance where none sould be.

yeah, that's a neat one. there was another really amazing one in the Guardian last year about a Jewish Israeli composer who worked Palestinian poet Mahmud Darwish's poetry into one of his pieces...in fact there was more to it than that, but i can't quite remember.

wish i could have heard it.

I was at a Synagog called Har Zion up in Markham recently. Apparently they were in the press recently for amicably sharing a parking lot with the Mosque next door - strange little corridor up there, Buddhist temple, Mosque, Synagog all in a row, like a religious strip mall - but I can't find those stories anywhere online. The parking lot is definitely there, whether it is shared amicably i don't have any evidence for. i hope it's true.
