Looking Back to Move Peace Forward: A Lesson for the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Julianna Maio

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — As an Egyptian-born Jew, I am profoundly disturbed by the depth of the hatred that has escalated between Arabs and Jews in the Middle East. After facing cultural extinction, I want to give a voice to Middle Eastern and North African Jews, as well as provide a better understanding and insight into the historical coexistence of two peoples who are now sworn enemies. No one remembers that Jews and Arabs co-existed peacefully in Egypt and in much of the Arab world for long periods of time. There were once an aggregate of 800,000 Jews living there, in fact.

Saleh, 37, who was born in the West Bank and came to Berlin at age 5, offers a story of social advancement and tolerance he hopes will win over voters and set an example for others. The son of a Palestinian “guest worker” who brought his family to then-West Berlin in the early 1980s, the 37-year-old Saleh started out working at Burger King and later co-founded a company that provides printing services. “At the moment, a lot of young people have the feeling that they don’t have a share” in society, he said. Berlin is home to a large immigrant community, including many people with Turkish roots, some of them poorly integrated. A growing new
