Would-be Texas governor touts Olive Oil for Peace

Long-time pals Richard "Kinky" Friedman (of detective novel and Texas Jewboys fame) and Farouk Shami (founder and chairman of the board of Farouk Systems) are determined to nurture youngsters in the war-torn Middle East.

Their new product -- Olive Oil from the Holy Land -- pays homage to Farouk's Palestinian family roots and the deep friendship possible between Jews and Arabs.

Proceeds from the sale of Olive Oil from the Holy Land will go toward funding Neve Shalom/Wahat Al-Salom (Oasis of Peace), and their "School of Peace" program, a grass roots conflict management workshop that aims to change the hearts, minds, and attitudes of teen age children.
