Ice cream sweetens prospects for peace

I really enjoyed reading about the Arab-Jewish business partnership in the Feb. 8 issue called “Sweet! Arab-Jewish partnership produces ice cream.” One rarely gets to hear about the positive side of the Arab-Jewish relationship, and I think that business partnerships are the first step in promoting peace. The stories that typically make it to the newspapers are more often about disruption rather than promotion of peace. Therefore, after seeing so much pain and confusion, it’s nice to sweeten the conflict with a taste of ice cream and hope. I would like to read more of this type of article in the future.
