    This brings hope to the world…if only people like this were in the majority..hope the Muslim families who prayed with their neighbors all stay safe from the lunatics who will surely criticize them…prayers shared are always a good thing.

  4. Tehila Muntz says:

    Seth Miller, I could not even get a second of quite on face book….. =-(

  5. Hope and pray it is the true.

  6. See, there are people, both Jews and Muslims, who can live together in peace. This is all Israel wants – to live in peace with everyone, side by side, sharing the beauty of all their individual faiths, celebrating the similarities and learning about each other’s differences. That is the essence of Israel. Anyone who thinks differently is not educated nor aware.

  7. David Darko says:

    Don’t pray together with Muslims. It is an abomination for a true yudaism to pray with a Muslim,remember! all religion are not the same.

  8. This is something new! Now if Muslims will get rid of Hamas,maybe there will someone to talk to! But this is a far fetched fantasy…

  9. Please God, bring them back to their families safe and fast.

  10. Our creator God has a plan and purpose for all his created beings. There’s a longing in each and every one of us. We will not experience fulfilment until we find that purpose. My prayer for theses young people is that there God given longings will not be aborted! May God’s will be fulfilled in them!

  11. Nalini Jal says:

    Amen may God bless u both the Jews nd Muslim for the peace

  12. Cay Johnson says:

    Why would a Muslim pray against their own Muslim brothers / sisters. You Jews need to think !!!

Additionally, may we dry our hands via an electric dryer?
