Recycled rockets into gifts

Saw these souvenirs for sale a while back, which made me think about my trip to Sderot next to the Gaza Strip, although I have not seen them for sale in any markets in Jerusalem.

Some enterprising blacksmith from Sderot has taken spent rockets that have come over from Gaza and recycled them into works of art, from flowers to menorahs!!

I was reading this bible passage the other day;

Isaiah 2:4 He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation,nor will they train for war anymore.

Not an exact glimpse of prophecy yet, but as some of these souviners have been given as a gift to the Palestinian Authority seems a really nice idea to convert a tool for death into something worthwhile.
