Oasis of peace

A small community called Wahat al-Salam, Neve Shalom, was founded in the late 1970s by four families, Jews and Arabs, on a hill-top between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. It was a pioneering experiment in peaceful co-existence in the long Middle East conflict. Four decades on, it is now home to more than 60 families. Two of its long-standing residents, Nava Sonnenschein and Daoud Boulus, talk about life in this oasis of peace.  To see a film clip about this click here:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p062gj98
