The West Side Story…set in the West Bank!

The West Bank Story - The Musical
Haven’t seen it yet, but this looks promising.

I was sold as soon as I saw the tagline! "A little singing, a little dancing, a lot of hummus."

 West Bank Story

A musical comedy set in the fast-paced, fast-food world of competing falafel stands in the West Bank… David, an Israeli soldier, falls in love with the beautiful Palestinian cashier, Fatima, despite the animosity between their families’ dueling restaurants. Can the couple’s love withstand a 2000 year old conflict and their families’ desire to control the future of the chic pea in the Middle East?

    How unIslamic of the Palestinians. Unlike Jewish law, there is nothing in Islamic law banning the marriage of a Muslim man and a Jewish woman.
    It is a sad state of affairs.

    Hina and I bought it on iTunes for $1.99 – loved it! The filmmaker made sure to make all the Arab characters Arab and/or Muslim, and found some really talented ones in the LA area thanks to the LA-based MuslimArtists collective. It really is fair to both sides, and absolutely funny to boot! The music is a wonderful blend of Klezmer and Arab music, as well as typical West Side Story musical numbers.
