In Gush Etzion there are some attempts to increase the consciousness of Israeli Jews living here that they have neighbors who are more than the "water drawers and woodcutters". (Here they are our "pumpers of gas and cement layers")
It is not an easy task, but thank G~d there are some of the younger generation here who believe that proper relationships between our people?People is more than providing employment or offering a cup of coffee to the construction worker.
But who would have thought that an impersonal Chain Store, like the Rami Levi Supermarket chain, might be a new venue for some interaction.
The following is a note from one of the young activists who dropped by the new Rami Levi that just opened at the Gush Etzion Junction.
Perhaps this is just an anecdote, but it is a human one. Will this intermingling open our eyes to their real life existence here?
Dear All, Shalom to All, Salaam!
Today the Rami Levi Supermarket opened at the Gush Etzion Junction.
was there and i saw Settlers and Palestinians standing on line at the
check-out counter. Some not looking at each other in the eyes..while
some were happy and smiling.
Maybe at the Super, a place of day to day meetings. there is the
simple possibility of really living together.
how I wish it! If only it would be! Inshallah! From my mouth to G~d's
