Radical Jewish settlers seek image makeover with sushi
JERUSALEM (AFP) - Radical Jewish settlers from a West Bank outpost with a reputation for violence have set up a sushi business in a bid to revamp their image, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.
The culinary venture is being run out of Esh Kodesh, a small unauthorised outpost in the northern West Bank populated by settlers who have frequently attacked local Palestinians.
But residents are seeking to add a different flag to their cap - making sushi to order for a string of settlements and outposts in the area, the top-selling Yediot Aharonot reported.
The enterprise was set up by a woman called Maayan Shaar, who only recently became religious and decided to introduce her neighbours to the Japanese delicacy, quickly converting them into enthusiasts.
