§ Dramatis Personae Moishe (m), 55, an Israeli Jew; Mohammed (m), 55, a Palestinian Arab.

§ Synopsis “Moishe is an Israeli Jew, Mohammed a Palestinian Arab. In a free-wheeling, no-holds-barred discussion, sparks fly as both men hurl charges and countercharges at each other, each blaming the other side for causing the Arab-Israeli conflict. Although both men offer frank and compelling arguments, neither is willing to make concessions.

§ Comment “Can their differences ever be resolved? Can the chasm that separates them ever be bridged? Does peace have a chance? • One scene, simple set.

§ Themes Arab-Israeli conflict, Balfour Declaration (1917), Holocaust, Israel, Palestine, PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization), Six-Day War (aka 1967 Arab-Israeli War, Six Days’ War, June War, June 5, 1967-June 10, 1967), United Nations, World War Two (September 3, 1939-September 2, 1945).
