Beer Festival Offers “Peaceful Resistance” to Middle East Conflicts

“It is a very happy weekend for us,” he added. ”I hope we will make some money.”

Scurrying after his 3-year-old son and nephew who were up to mischief inside the brewery, Taybeh resident George Salem noted the importance of the normalcy the festival brought, not only to the village but for all Palestinians.

“We always want to have a normal life, for us, for our kids,” he said. ”It’s a moment where we can get together, forget everything that is going on for a little bit. It’s a chance for people from all over to come and support Palestinians. It’s a peaceful festival. Instead of throwing stones we are drinking beer.”
