Growing up in Tucuman, a city in northern Argentina, I had the opportunity to see peaceful coexistence and collaboration between Arabs and Jews. I was reminded of that experience after reading an article by Uri Avnery, one of the leading peace activists in Israel, on the need for a peace narrative in the Middle East.

Tucuman received numerous immigrants (among them my father) who came to that city at the beginning of the last century.

Notable among them were citizens from Arab countries. The city also had a substantial Jewish population.
