I know I mostly mostly post about Israelis in a negative light, and with good reason too, but very occasionally one does hear a good news story out of that region.
Settlers give pre-Passover bread to nearby Palestinians
Israeli settlers distributed hundreds of loaves of bread to needy Palestinians on Monday, combining the religious edict of discarding leavened bread ahead of Passover and sending a message of peace to their Palestinian neighbors.
For the third year in a row, members of the Eretz Shalom movement — inspired by the late Rabbi Menachem Froman — collected food products forbidden for consumption on Passover in six distribution points across the West Bank and distributed them to nearby Palestinian communities as part of an initiative called “goodbye to Chametz” (unleavened bread).
Yaki Fried, a resident of Ofra, a settlement located 29 kilometers (18 miles) north of Jerusalem, told The Times of Israel that he collected between 500-700 loaves of pita bread discarded by grocery stores in the West Bank settlements of Eli, Shilo and Ofra.
“Two years ago we saw the owner burn huge quantities of perfectly good bread,” Fried said. “So we decided to contact a local Palestinian and distribute the bread to needy people. There are many small things we can help each other out with.”
Small potatoes maybe, but a good start. Now if they'd only stop stealing the people's land and water, maybe there could be some small progress. A "two state solution" will never happen. These people need to live together.
