We Prefer the Mountains Rather than the Valleys
2014

We prefer the mountains rather than the valleys.
We have been persecuted in the past because of our small numbers and the secretiveness of our faith.

Today, our formal name is the Muwahiddun.
We have preserved our unity.
We form our own borders.

Red is for the heart and love of humanity
Green is for the farmer and life
White is for the air and purity
Yellow the sun and wheat
Blue is for the sky and faith

This story takes place within the valleys of Jerusalem and the mountains north of the city.
