Joshua Gross, a public affairs consultant in Washington, D.C., wrote a poignant story in last week’s Forward about how his relationship with a Lebanese woman was threatened by last summer’s war between Israel and Lebanon.
As is the case with many Arab-Jewish or Muslim-Jewish relationships, politics was a topic typically avoided in their relationship:
Interestingly, their relationship became a source of inspiration for some of their friends, who framed their relationship as a “microcosm of the peace process itself.” “You can’t give up! You owe it to humanity to make it work!” said one friend.
Joshua has a healthy skepticism toward such attitudes, although the piece suggests he also saw the allure of such idealism. I won’t reveal the ending, but I bet you will be touched–and maybe a bit frustrated–by his tale.
