Hundreds of students from Israel and across the Arab world will soon be headed to school together. YaLa-Young Leaders, which calls itself the largest online peace movement, says it’s recruiting 1,500 students from the region for its first online Israeli-Arab Peace Institute. The group says the yearlong course will include online lectures by former peace negotiators from Israel, the Palestinian territories, Northern Ireland, Rwanda and South Africa. Founder Uri Savir, himself a former Israeli negotiator, says the students are being selected from the 420,000 people who have joined YaLa’s Facebook page.
