Coming Up Roses

The pendant crafted from Hamas rocket shrapnel.

Remember when Tal gave me that amazing present last month?

I got another great present today.

My friend and sometime co-author Julie gave me a pendant made out of a Hamas rocket.

Confused? Then let me introduce you to the organisation Rockets Into Roses. It sells stunning, hand-sculpted products which have been fashioned out of actual Hamas rockets fired into Israel.

The proceeds are then used to build and enhance bomb shelters in Israel. Brilliant, huh?

By the way, Julie is now writing her memoir of philosemitism Unchosen. I’ve read two chapters and it is sensational stuff. I’m so looking forward to reading the finished product – and I think you’ll enjoy it too.
