In Israel, "collaboration" is a good thing.
Dr. Adi Naali, the Olive Division Manager of the Israeli Plants Production and Marketing Board, recently met with representatives of the Palestinian Authority and Israeli Ministry of Agriculture to discuss future collaboration to increase olive oil sales from Israel and the West Bank.
Due to the recent frost and drought in Spain, the largest producer of olives in the market, olive oil prices are expected to soar as Spain is projected to lose an estimated 600,000 tons of product.
Dr. Naali stressed that now is the time to collaborate in order to advance protection against olive flies, improve technology for olive oil production and storage, and enhance advertising to take advantage of the current market situation.
To Arabs, "collaboration" can get you killed.
And so-called "peace activists" tend to side with the Arab definition.
