Food Truck Movement Aims to Unify Arabs and Jews

Author & Peace Activist Moustafa M. Soliman brings hope to the Middle East through new book & foundation

Washington, D.C.-January 2, 2013-: Author and peace activist, Moustafa M. Soliman, inspires a new message of peace and hope in the Middle East through the unlikely friendship between a devout Palestinian Muslim and an American Orthodox Jew in his new book An Arab, a Jew, and a Truck (ISBN 978-0-7414-7460-5; Infinity Publishing). The book serves as a catalyst behind Soliman’s vision for his newly established foundation an Arab-Jewish Truck to Peace.

An Arab, a Jew, and a Truck tells the story of Ali and David, who learn to share a kosher kitchen in the Bronx and recognize the similarities between them rather than the differences. Their business, An Arab, A Jew, and A Truck, leads to engaging and entertaining situations that open a window into current ethnic, religious, and political ironies.

Ali and David’s success story is the backbone behind the Arab-Jewish Truck to Peace Foundation, which plans to carry forth the message of hope Ali and David began. The foundation aims to expand friendship and understanding between Arabs and Jews by sponsoring collaboration among Jewish and Arab artists, writers, actors, and entrepreneurs.

The foundation will officially launch this summer, with a food truck selling both kosher and halal food and it will travel to X cities across the United States. The foundation’s goal is to spread unity and peace to schools, synagogues, churches, and mosques.

“A truck can carry many things, but our trucks carry hope.”

Moustafa Soliman, an Egyptian American with a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, has negotiated and implemented numerous energy collaborative agreements between the United States Government and Middle Eastern countries, including Israel and the Palestinian Authority. His extensive travel, and frank one-on-one discussions with senior politicians as well as with the average man on the street give him a keen sense of the hopes and aspirations of the people of the region and has inspired him to write this historical fiction.

New Foundation

The success story in the book has motivated the author and his wife, Lynn Skynear, to form a non-profit foundation named, Arab-Jewish Truck To Peace, that will carry and spread the message of hope Ali and David started. The Foundation aims at expanding friendship and understanding between Arabs (Muslims and Christians) and Jews through encouraging and sponsoring collaboration among Jewish and Arab artists, writers, actors, and, in particular, young entrepreneurs.

The Foundation’s goal is to work with and complement the efforts of other organizations that are dedicated to interfaith understanding and to bringing peace to the Holy land.
