For those who say there will never be peace in the Middle East, here's a "hole" lot of proof that coexistence is possible.
Reports the New York Daily News:
The oldest Jewish bialy and bagel shop in New York City is being rescued by two Muslim cab drivers - and they plan to keep it kosher.
Zafaryab Ali and Peerzada Shah said the first bagels and bialys they ever tasted when they immigrated here from Pakistan more than 16 years ago were made at the Gravesend noshery.
"It doesn't matter," Ali said of the cross-cultural differences. "I make the food for everyone."
Could a good bit of dough be the elusive solution to an age-old dispute?
