The Israeli-Palestinian expedition team of "Breaking The Ice" is ascending in altitude, roped together, reports their point person in Berlin, Torsten Sewing.
     Communication with them has been lost.
     "The satellite phones are dead, because the snow is falling," Sewing told us by phone.
     "I'm kinda worried but trust all is okay."
     They are in nearing position to make the final, most challenging and treacherous last ascent to the peak.
     Assuming all goes well, "they might be on the summit tomorrow."
     That would be Thursday, January 15th about at mid-day in Antarctica.
     Wish them salaam, shalom.
     They and their endeavor certainly bless us and the public peace process on Earth
