A Palestinian soapmaker carries soaps in a workshop in the West Bank city of Nablus September 28, 2009. Now that the Palestinian Intifada, or uprising, has receded and the Israeli army is easing roadblocks around Nablus, long the industrial hub of the West Bank, those of the city's once ubiquitous soapmakers who have survived a sharp decline in sales are eyeing new markets abroad for their all-natural produce.
