Meet Maral Malka, 23, and her newly announced husband Mahmoud Mansour, 26 who were married on August 17, 2014 in Tel Aviv, Israel.
What makes their day a special one is that Maral was born Jewish while Mahmoud is Muslim. There are always two sides to the coin; in this case, one side has people who are ecstatic that love transcends everything even in a time of war, while on the other side, there are people who are appalled and distraught.
In fact, some people were so bothered by this union that over 200 protesters came to crash the wedding. Luckily enough, Israeli police made it in time to form a human shield and allow the marriage go off without a hitch and only four arrests.
According to reports, protesters were screaming "death to the Arab."
