Do you want to party for a purpose? DJ Ramzy, self identified as an Arab, Israeli Jew, crosses cultural boundaries by spinning Arabic music to mixed audiences in Jerusalem. Quoted in the New York Times for saying, “Dialogue isn’t fun.” He found a way to make peace in the Middle East through music and nightlife.
In this conversation, Ramzy speaks to Jerusalem as the best city on earth, describes the impact of surviving terrorist attacks, and explains the power of human contact to dissolve the barriers that divide people in the Holy Land. Ramzy also explores the unfortunate impact of the Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement on his work, and the adverse role of external national forces in Israel more generally. The solution must come from the people, and Ramzy intends to be one of them.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
Why Jerusalem is the best city on earth
How surviving terrorism impacted one person
The ways in which the Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement creates more separation between Israelis and Palestinians who may want to create together
