Haaretz, of all papers, had an article about tours of Judea and Samaria that are winning hearts and minds. It was by Chaim Levinson, and I wonder if he is the same man as Charles Levinson, who writes for the Wall Street Journal.

Maskiyot, a small town near the Jordan River, is looking for American friends.

There also is a program in Jerusalem to sift through the dirt the Wakf dug up from the Temple Mount on search of significant artifacts.

“Is there an opportunity for vistors next month to hammer a nail or two?”

Now if Habitat for Humanity were building homes there, rather than destroying perfectly good neighborhoods in the US, I’d probably donate time and money to them.
