Blogger’s Favorites from: Alice and Abbsi (Part 1 of 4)

In honor of our second year blogging together, we have asked our 8 bloggers to take a look back at their favorite blog posts from one another. In this post, we focus on our favorite posts from Israeli blogger Alice through the Looking Glass and Palestinian blogger Abbsi. For those of you who are newer readers, we remind you a little bit about each of the bloggers and their background before introducing some of their posts!

A Palestinian Perspective on the March for Peace

Yesterday morning, I drove out of Jerusalem on one of the busiest days of the year as the city is packed with Israeli Jews celebrating Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles. I went to pick up my Palestinian friends in Beit Jala, Bethlehem and Beit Sahour. Since they are from the West Bank, they are not allowed to be on Israeli roads, so we drove through “The Valley of Fire”’ and the back roads to Jericho in order to get to Area C, where both Israelis and Palestinians can drive. We were on our way to Jesus’ baptismal site to join the march for peace initiated by Women Wage Peace.
