OPINION
Afghan graffiti
By LINDSAY LAIRD
Laird studied the work of an
Afghan street artist, Sham-
sia Hassni. Hassini, a resi-
dent of Afghanistan's capital
city of Kabul, frequently
depicts women in blue
burqas, which Laird argues
does not contradict Hassini's
women's rights viewpoint.
OPINION

tive called HeForShe, which.
aims to incorporate males

listening to Waston's speech

act with compassion and
solidarity.

Prominent Arab-Israeli author Sayed Kashau discusses his experiences in Palestine at the Alumni Center Tuesday.
Noted Israell Arab writer
discusses-minor iidentity

A noted author
and screenwriter,
Kashua calls for
peace in Middle East
By CHARLOTTE JENKINS
Daily StaffReporter
Prominent Arab-Israeli author
Sayed Kashua spoke Tuesday eve-
ning at the Alumni Center as part
of an event titled the "Foreign
Mother Tongue: Living and Writ-
ing as a Palestinian in Israel."
Though the event was not
sponsored by the University,
several campus organizations
including the University's Judaic
Studies department, Helen Zell
Writers' Program, the Center for
Middle Eastern and North Afri-
can Studies department, the Near
Eastern Studies department and
Comparative Literature depart-
ment hosted the lecture.
Shachar Pinsker, a professor of
Hebrew Literature and Culture,
moderated the event.
Kashua discussed how he
recently left his home in Israel
following the events there this
summer. He wrote about his deci-
sion to leave in a columnin the
Guardian titled "Why I Have to
Leave Israel."

"Last summer was catastroph-
ic," Kashua said, "For the first
time in my life, I'm not sure Ihad
a lot of reasons to be optimistic."
As a Palestinian living in Israel,
Kashua said he has felt conflicted
over his Israeli identity and citi-
zenship.
"I am a citizen [of Israel],
because I have no other citizen-
ship," Kashua said, "I am a citizen
because I care about the future,
and I am a citizen because I used
to believe, and maybe stillbelieve
in some naive way that we can
live together and exist together
equally - Christians, Jews and
Muslims."
Kashua is also the writer and
creator of-an Israeli television
show called "Arab Labor." The
show centers on an Arab family
living in Israel and their encoun-
ters assimilating into Israeli soci-
ety.
He mentioned the importance
of using comedy and humor-
ous stereotypes in the show to
humanize the characters. Kashua
said this is especially important
when portrayingthe Arab minor-
ity characters on the show.
"I do believe in minority
humor," Kashua said. "There is
nothing funny about being a
majority."
Kashua is also an acclaimed
novelist. He has published three

books, one of which won the
Berstein Prize, an Israeli literary
award for authors younger than
s0.
Kashua is unique as a Palestin-
ian author because he writes in
Hebrew, though his works have
been translated into English.
After age 14 he was educated in a
school for gifted students in Jeru-
salem that only had books written
in Hebrew.
Kashua said language has
always been an integral part ofhis
background and identity.
"I wanted to tell, in Hebrew,
about my father who sat in jail for
long years, with no trial, for his
political ideas," Kashua wrote in
the Guardian. "I wanted to tell
the Israelis a story, the Palestin-
ian story."
J Street Umich, a student orga-
nization dedicated to achieving
a two-state solution to the Arab-
Israeli conflict, encouraged their
members to attend and held a dis-
cussion after the event.
LSA junior Arielle Schoenburg,
co-chair of J Street, said this issue
is important to her as an Ameri-
can Jew who wants to see Israel
as a democratic Jewish state.
"I think it is super important to
continue talking about this issue,
especially in light of what hap-
pened last semester," Schoen-
