With so much doom and gloom in the world I thought it would be nice to reflect on a bit of good news for a change. So, here ya go:

From bombing center to strawberry capital of W. Bank

There was a time when Kalkilya was the focus of bomb making and terrorism but a new program is aiming to turn this Palestinian city into the strawberry capital of the West Bank.

The first crop of the ruby red fruit in this pilot program is halfway to harvest. The Palestinians hope to be able to cash in on the lucrative Christmas markets in Europe and possibly sell strawberries to a major international ice cream producer.

Jerusalem Post

Great to see some progress being made in those parts of the world. And for those that want to help the Palestinians improve their lives, this is a good peaceful way to do it - buy their strawberries!
