Listen to the:
 In Israel, Arabs and Jews rarely mix socially.  But in the Biblical port city of Jaffa, just south of Tel Aviv, there’s one café-bookstore that both populations frequent.  Daniel Estrin discovered the café when he first arrived in Israel a few years ago.  In a Reporter’s Notebook, Estrin says some days there are more Jews that come; some days there are more Arabs.  And some days they even sit with each other.  The owners don’t keep score.  They just think this kind of place should exist.
