Peace rally in Paris unites Jews and Muslims
by Fabien Jannic-Cherbonnel
Several hundred people gathered in the centre of Paris on Sunday to demonstrate for peace. The Israel-Palestine rally was supported by several organisations including the French Union of Jewish Students who joined Muslim groups for the march.
18-year-old student Celena Azouaoui was exasperated by the rise of hatred in the wake of the Gaza war, and wanted to show that people could unite despite their disagreements.
She used Facebook to mobilize people around this cause.
