Israel Distributes Cucumber Seeds to Palestinians at Checkpoint to Calm Tensions, Convey Positive Message (VIDEO)
A creative endeavor to calm tensions between Israelis and Palestinians in the West Bank was undertaken by the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Unit (COGAT), the Hebrew news site nrg reported on Wednesday.
COGAT employees distributed packets of cucumber seeds to Palestinians as they arrived for inspection before crossing into Israel.
The symbolic message, coming during the current wave of terrorism perpetrated by mostly young Palestinians, was clear — to sow, not stab.
The response of the recipients was caught on camera, and COGAT released a video of the moving moments.
