Muppets build a bridge of peace

Peace between Israel and the Palestinians may be foundering, but due to the wonderful Muppet characters, relations are blossoming.

After overcoming years of hurdles, a joint Israeli-Palestinian production of Sesame Street takes the airwaves on April 1, complete with fuzzy new Palestinian and Israeli Muppets created specially for the show.

Lewis Bernstein, the show's American executive producer, described the series as being about ``the possibilities of friendship.'' "If the adults working on the Sesame Street project can do this, certainly our children can do it too,'' said Dolly Wolbrum, the series' Israeli executive producer.

Jim Henson's original goal of Fraggle Rock was to create a children's show that "brought peace to the world." Therefore I am sure his family is happy to know that his creations are bringing two countries together.
