Arabs & Jews : True Love Conquers and Overcome Racism
9 January 2016 | by (Miami, Florida) – See all my reviews

9 January 2016: I found this movie by accident on the I-net and I am glad that I did. I am not Jewish, but I speak basic Hebrew and I am pro Israel. However, I truly wish and pray for the peace of God to fall on the hearts of the Jewish and Palestine Arab people there. From the Holy Bible, Arabs and Jews are both cousins. Abraham had two sons, Ishmael, by Hagar, the Arab Egyptian woman and the later a son Isaac by his wife, Sarah, a Jewish woman.

Anyhoo, this movie was very funny and well acted from start to finish. I would like to see more movies that promote love and peace between Arabs and Jews to stamp out hate, racism and bigotry, which is what this movie does by the end of the movie.

Great cast of Israeli and Arab actors/actresses such as Hiam Abbass who is in the movie "Exodus, False Gods and Kings" played a Jewish mother to Moses and in this movie, she is playing her real nationality, a Palestine Arab. She is good. Israeli actress, Einat Tubi is pretty and talented. The one plus would have been to have one of Israel's most beautiful women, Ilanit Levi, former Miss Israel in this movie.

Arab actor/writer, Ghazi Albuliwi wrote a very funny script and does a good job as a guy looking to marry an American girl to stay in America legally. I was happy that they fell in love, she became pregnant and true loves overcomes hate, racism and bigotry. One of the funniest and endearing lines in the movie is when friend of lead actress, Einat's Miki character tells pregnant Miki, "you got a little Jew Arab inside of you". I wonder how well the cast of Jews and Arabs got alone or were able to put aside their disdain for each other and make a good comedy movie. I give it a 9 on the movie scale.
