Shalom Salam-Peace Israelis Palestinians Trucker Hat
The Hebrew word "Shalom" (Hebrew: שָׁלוֹם), and the Arabic "Salaam" (Arabic: سلام) have been used as peace symbols. Shalom and Salaam literally mean "peace" and are cognates of each other, derived from the Semitic Triconsonantal of Ś-L-M (realized in Hebrew as Š-L-M and in Arabic as S-L-M). They have come to represent "Mideast peace" and an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Wall plaques and signs are sold with both the words and are featured in such Israeli peace songs such as "Salaam (Od Yavo Shalom Aleinu)."
