The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has intensified recently. After a week of airstrikes on Gaza that killed at least 185 Palestinians, Egypt proposed a cease-fire between Hamas and Israel.

Almost 1,000 strikes have been fired from Gaza. No Israelis have been killed, but several were injured.

Many people, however, refuse to be enemies.

Approximately 300 people protested the Israeli government striking Gaza on July 5, holding signs that read:

Jews and Arabs refuse to be enemies.

The slogan has since become an international social media campaign with its own Twitter Hashtag and Facebook Page.

People all over the world are in support of this movement to end the violence. Abraham Gutman, an Israeli student from Hunter College, along with classmate Dania Darwish, started the Facebook page.

Gutman says the two don’t always agree when it comes to politics, but they always hold respectful discussions.

Lately, they’ve been unable to open their social media accounts, as their feeds have been flooded with hate.

We wanted to create a community of people that oppose this kind of speech and to remind people that in the bottom line we are all just people.

The Facebook page reviews its guidelines thusly:
