Yaron Bob, an art teacher and blacksmith who lives in Yated, a small
Israeli community near the border with the Gaza strip, has found a way to
make roses out of Kassam rockets fired out of Gaza.
Bob had two close calls with rockets, and he knew he needed to react to
the terror that he and his community were facing.
Yaron wanted to create something that speaks of growth and prosper-
ity and to make something out of the destruction and of the ruin of the
The truth is, because the rocket is an instrument of death, he really
didn't want to handle it. However, his frustration was intensifying with so
many missiles falling on Israel and so many alarms.
The situation was very stressful on him and his family. "It finally struck
me that I need to make a rose from the Kassam," he said.
Now, Bob collects the spent rockets, most given to him by the police,
after they have been checked by the bomb squad.
Although the rose, stem and base are made of Kassam remains, there is
no sign the flower comes from rocket metal.
"I take the Kassam, the instrument of death, and I change it; I transfer
it into something of beauty:"
Bob is not a pacifist, but he would like Hamas to know talking is better
than firing rockets and starting a war.
His goal is to somehow let the world know that people in Israel are not
hungry for war and what they really want is a bright and beautiful future.
