SodaStream 'Does More for Peace than Any Diplomat'

As his tour of Israel comes to a close, former Akansas governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee took the opportunity to visit the SodaStream factory in Kfar Adumim, to see firsthand how Israelis and Palestinians are overcoming a legacy of conflict to work together - and laying a potential path to peaceful coexistence which has eluded the most seasoned professional negotiators.

"I would say that the employees of SodaStream in this factory do more in a day than all the diplomats from the United States, Israel and the Palestinian Authority have done in the past 10 years," remarked Huckabee after meeting with Jewish and Arab employees.
