Keep Hope Alive

January 16, 2011

Keep Hope Alive is a project that plants olive trees to replace those destroyed by Israelis.

Every year Israel destroys Palestinian olive groves, prevents Palestinians from harvesting their olive crops, prevents them from exporting their olive oil.

In the UK you can support the Palestinians by buying fairtrade Zaytoun olive oil. In the US by buying fairtrade Peace Oil. But please do not buy Peace Oil in the UK which is an Israeli product.

Shame on St Mary’s Church in Guildford and the hypocrisy of the rector for permitting the sale of Israeli so-called Peace Oil in the church. [see Peace Oil or taking the piss?]

Zaytoun fairtrade olive oil from Palestine.

Palestine is the home of the olive tree, with some of the oldest olive groves in the world, some dating as far back as 1500 to 2000 years. The olive trees produce fruit that supports over half the population and can be seen dominating the agricultural landscape.

The Mediterranean climate, rich fertile soil and use of organic traditional farming methods, makes Zaytoun’s Palestinian olive oil a world outstanding product.
