Pass the Peace Olive Oil with Me on May 5th

The Author By Kelly Hayes-Raitt | May 3rd, 2007 | Comments No Comments

If you live in LA, join me Saturday, May 5th at 4:00 pm at a private home in Santa Monica to hear more about my experiences with the Christian Peacemaker Team (www.cpt.org) in Israel and Palestine and to sample some Palestinian olive oil. (Call me at 310.392.8715 for details.)

Co-hosted by Wafa Shami of the American Friends Service Committee (www.MEPeaceLA.org), we will sample olive oil grown and pressed by Palestinians who have trouble getting their products to market.

It’s sad irony that olive trees are destroyed by the conservative Jewish settlers’ fierce display of intimidation. In At-Tuwani, this grove of broken trees tried to recover, and the Palestinian farmers who existed off the trees were devastated.
