Watch: Israeli Jews & Arabs Kiss To Protest Book Ban 

Watch: Israeli Jews & Arabs Kiss To Protest Book Ban


After the Ministry of Education banned a book for its depiction of Jewish-Arab love, six couples fought back.

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.
