Using social media to promote world peace

My students have been closely monitoring the Israel-Palestine conflict. They decided to use their knowledge of social media and Yang Liu's style of communication to propagate the idea of peace based on similarities between Jews and Muslims. Here's what they came up with. (Notice how they use colour to distinguish the two religions).

Jews and Muslims pray in the same manner.

They both believe in angels.

This one could be a little hard to guess. But that's the whole point. Keeps you thinking!
(Answer: Men and women are required to pray separately.)

In both cultures, they avoid eating pig.
:) Reminds me of Minchin's song:

Women are required to wear veils in the prayer hall.
