Jordan Farmar, the Lakers back-up point guard and the NBA’s best Jewish player (the bar is admittedly low), will travel to Israel next month to run basketball clinics for Israeli and Palestinian kids. It appears the program, sponsored by the Peres Center for Peace, is designed to teach children to co-exist in the Holy Land while dominating each other on the basketball court.

After the clinic ends Aug. 11, Farmar plans to visit Haifa and Jerusalem as an emissary for Seeds of Peace and Players Peace International, which i don’t think Tommie Harris and his pig joke are members of.

“Basketball, and sports in general, have the ability to transcend conflict, and are a powerful tool to bring children of all backgrounds together,” Farmar said in a statement. “Bringing these children together while they are young and impressionable and helping them learn how to play and communicate with one another can build bridges of understanding for when they are older.”
