"Two of almost everything seems to exist side by side in this Israeli village west of Jerusalem. Two alphabets - one Arabic, one Hebrew - hang above the chalkboards in the elementary school. Two principals set the curriculum. There are even two names for the village itself, which both mean the “Oasis of Peace.” To the Jews and Israeli Arabs who live here, such doubling is paramount."
