People living together, don't throw stones.

When you work and depend on others. It doesn't matter who they are. You need them to get the job done. If we can find more integration like this we can eliminate most of the junk that is slowing down our progress are growing a great world.

Fight BDS - Buy Israeli Products!

How can we combat boycotts? Buy a Sodastream! Go into Bed,Bath,Beyond, Staples, Macys and tell them that you want this product. I recently was in Staples and they were only too happy to badmouth Sodastream "No one is buying it...We don't want to carry it anymore..." The way to support Israeli companies is to buy their products - not so complicated! And by the way - not only is the Sodastream soda maker convenient to use - the company has great customer service.

Not because of BDS!

SodaStream CEO Daniel Birnbaum says the company did not leave the West Bank owing to pressure but because it needed more space.

Soda Stream video -

I cry when I watch Soda Stream videos. It just doesn't make any sense why the BDS is patting themselves on the back over the closure of Soda Stream in an industrial area of Maaleh Adumin. As we see, it does not have anything whatsoever to do with making better the lives of Palestinians, Druzim, Israeli Arabs, and Jewish Israelis. What was the point? What is the likelihood that these satisfied workers are working in pleasant jobs now? Who won?

Not impressed

What's so good about this, that Muslims and Jews mingle together?

agree about jobs

Completely true. If there wasn't acrimony and boycotts, there would be jobs. Syria has thousands, no hundreds of thousands of miles of land, but there is violence and poverty. Same with Afghanistan. With 99% of the land in the Middle East Islamic or Arab, a lack of land is NOT THE PROBLEM. What to do with it is the issue for these Arab countries.

There is no chance Netanyahu or anyone else is going to give back land and secure borders for some vague promises to be nice. There is however the possibility of promoting economic cooperation, jobs, partnerships, ventures, which would reduce acrimony, promote prosperity and incrementally make things better on both sides.
