  • Description

    THE TIDE OF WAR HAS ROLLED ACROSS THE FERTILE JORDAN VALLEY, BUT FOR THE ARAB FARMERS WHO HAVE WORKED THE LAND FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS, THIS IS HARVEST TIME. AND AMID THE DEBRIS OF BATTLE, THEY CONTINUE TO BRING IN THE CROPS.

    FOR THESE FARMERS, THE POLITICAL CONSIDERATION OF THE MIDDLE EAST ARE OF SECONDARY IMPORTANCE JUST NOW. THEIR PROBLEM IS THE HARVESTING OF WHEAT AND THE CARE OF TOMATOES, ONIONS, FRUIT AND OTHER PRODUCE.

    THE WHEAT HARVESTING IS CARRIED OUT IN THIS AREA WITH A MIXTURE OF OLD AND NEW IMPLEMENTS, FROM MODERN TRACTORS TO HAND-THRESHING.

    BUT OCCASIONALLY IN THIS LUSH LANDSCAPE, THERE STANDS THE REMINDER OF WAR -- A BURNT-OUT VEHICLE OR PERHAPS A SHELL CRATER.
