In light of the heated debates over what to do about Iran’s nuclear weapons program, comedians Elon Gold and Maz Jabrani have teamed up with the Ploughshares Fund to make light of the topic and give peace a…dance? That’s right. Jabrani, an Iranian-American Muslim and Elon Gold, a Bronx-born Jew, sat down and tried to figure out what they could do to help bring awareness to nuclear non-proliferation (try saying that five times fast; they did and it didn’t work out too well).What did they come up with? A cross-cultural dance-off for peace. Check out the video — produced by Portal A — and browse around Give Peace a Dance to learn more about the conflict and what you can do to help send a message to Obama about mediating between Israel and Iran.
