Interesting... anything that might bridge the gap is welcomed and encouraged. there has to be some methods for showing that the differences aren't what people have been engrained to believe as children. Arabs and especially Muslims need to learn the laws of acceptance and maybe things like this can begin to reach the younger generations to the lies they have been taught.

Thanks Alex.

They sound quirky, but looking at that photo of them with a depiction that is obviously of Jesus Christ - it's interesting that they can do that without fear of causing worldwide riots and having to live in hiding due to death threats, as they would most definitely had to do if one of them had passed himself off as Mohammed. Hmmm

As Kobi Farhi said "Music has no religion". It's a valient move that he's taken and I wish them the best of luck. Rob and Jay....just my opinion but maybe he dressed like Jesus Christ because Christ was born a Jew. Just sayin'. Of course you're right about what might happen if he depicted himself as Mohammed. Disaster!
Thank you so much Alex, for this uplifting article and video.
