dc.description.abstract The conflict has been raging for over half a century. Israel and Palestine are like two brothers; brothers that are sprung out of the same core and host religions and nations that share the same origins. But in spite of these commonalities, the dispute is still ongoing, with no promise of a near-end resolve. On the other side of the globe, in the heartland of the United States, in a little house with a blue door, resides a cross-section of this conflict. But unlike in the Middle East, its inhabitants live in peace and friendship. On neutral ground, in a nation that was built on diversity, these people were brought together to jointly pursue shared dreams and goals; dreams that run deeper than ethnical differences and goals that are most easily attained by helping each other. On the field, in the gym, and in the water, they are allowed to forget about all political or ethnical antagonisms that exist outside the arena. Bonds are tied that bridge all prior differences, because in the water, everyone is equal. en_US
