A group of Arab boy scouts from Syria participated yesterday in joint May Day ceremonies with Jewish youth in the colonies of Dan and Ayeleth Aschahar. Leaders of the Arab youths expressed the hope that “the walls separating Jews and Arabs” will soon be removed. Similar sentiments were voiced by their Jewish hosts.
