"The toughest part of the West Bank just got a bit sweeter, with an influx of beehives, helping farmers cope with the decline in their economic situation...

The ICRC said it gave five beehives each to 74 West Bank families. " (Thanks Marcy and Rania)

Is that what the ICRC has been reduced to? 370 beehives, and this deserves an article? That's less than $5000 worth of aid. Symbolic development aid is a practical joke used to avoid addressing real issues.
