Peace at 66° S, 65° W: An 8-person team of amateur Palestinian and Israeli mountain climbers have successfully scaled a previously unclimbed peak in Antarctica. The coalition, called Breaking the Ice, issued this statement at the top: "We have proven that Palestinians and Israelis can cooperate with one another with mutual respect and trust. We hereby declare that our peoples can and deserve to live together in peace and friendship." Read their expedition weblog here.
