What a beautiful love story. And what a absolute tragedy that they had/will have to leave their homes to find peace and acceptance.
She is a 26-year-old Jewish Israeli. Her name is Jasmine Avissar. He is a 27-year-old Palestinian Muslim, Osama Zaatar.
Jasmine and Osama's is a love story, and it tells you so much about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
They met when they worked at the same place in Jerusalem, and three years ago they got married.
First they tried to live in Israel, but the Israeli authorities would not allow Osama to join his wife there.
Then they tried living in the occupied West Bank, but some Palestinians made life difficult for them.
Now they've given up and are moving to Europe.
I do hope they can find a new home in Europe. And to the Israelis and Palestinians who couldn't accept the love that defies borders? Psha!
