Watch: Israeli Jews & Arabs Kiss To Protest Book Ban

Israel may officially be the Jewish State, but 20% of its population are Arab—citizens who vote, pay taxes, and contribute to the vibrancy of Israeli society. Mixed relationships, however, widely remain taboo, as evident from a recent decision from the Israeli Ministry of Education to pull a book from the nation's curriculum for its inclusion of a romance between a Jewish man and an Arab woman.

For many people—especially young people—such divisions bear no relevance, and so six mixed couples, straight and gay, came together for Time Out Israel to kiss on camera.
