Arab-Israeli Peace Card

Picture of a Jewish star on top of a Christmass tree is courtesy of "w.wabbit" who published it on Flickr. It is a Blessing of Peace in Hebrew and in Arabic. The green tree looks like a Christmass tree so in fact the blessing is about peace between Arabs, Israelis and Christians. The six-pointed star is used by Christians Muslims and Jews, and it is the fittest symbol of their future coexistence.

Friedensreich Hundertwasser designed in 1978 the Peace Flag for the Near East with a green Arab crescent moon and blue Star of David against a white background and published his Peace Manifesto.
