JERUSALEM, ISRAEL - JANUARY 31: The audience reacts to the humour of  Palestinian-American standup comedian Ray Hanania, from Chicago, as he performs during the final show of the Israeli-Palestinian Comedy Tour January 31, 2007 in a Jewish synagogue in Jerusalem, Israel. Hanania, along with comedians Charley Warady, an American Jew who immigrated to Israel from Chicago ten years ago, Aaron Freeman, an African-American convert to Judaism living in the Chicago area, and Yisrael Campbell, a Catholic convert to Judaism who moved to Israel from Los Angeles six years ago, put their religious and political differences behind them and joined forces to form the Israeli-Palestinian Comedy Tour. Their stated goal is to inject some much needed laughter into the region?s embattled landscape and to promote coexistence between the two sides through the creative arts.
