The most moving experience of our recent trip to Dahab was when we had a bedouin dinner in the mountains.  After dinner the bedouins began signing songs to the beat of the darbukas.  My son Basim asked if they could sing something in English.  One of the bedouins turned to the other and said in Arabic that he didn't know any songs in English, but could sing something in Hebrew.  I responded in Arabic that I understood Hebrew.  He turned to me and began speaking in perfect, fluent Hebrew.  He explained that he had recently come from Nuweiba, where he spent 10 years and met many Israelis (and apparently perfected his knowledge of Hebrew).  He then sang a song in Hebrew for me.  "Od Yavo Shalom Aleinu" (Peace will yet come onto us, Salaam on us and on the whole world).  I sang with him.  Hopefully God heard us in the heavens above.
