The Arab-Jewish food truck for peace
Fostering inter-religious dialogue through the windows of a food truck: Moustafa Soliman will dish out halal meat from one side and kosher fare out the other.
“As Ali and David were leaving the kitchen, Ali stopped and looked at the sign saying the kitchen was kosher and asked, “Can I also put a sign at my end of the kitchen?” ...”What would your sign say?” ...”It would say, this kitchen is fifty percent kosher and fifty percent Arabic.”
