PEACE with Penny: Penny S. Tee Interviews Khaled Abu Awwad, an Award-Winning Palestinian Peace Activist. Khaled Abu Awwad, is a Palestinian Peace Activist, and given his past history and personal losses, you never would have predicted that today he would work on Peace with Israeli settlers. His tragic family story chronicles the inhumane Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the forces that brought him to see the enemy, no longer as “monsters,” but as humans with their own tragic narratives to tell. Two of Khaled’s brothers were killed, and his son was maimed. He, and many members of his family who were leaders in the First Intifada, including his brother Ali Abu Awwad, and his mother Fatma, who was close with Yasser Arafat, spent years in jail. How did he transform his life from being a victim to a survivor? I hope his story of transformation despite incredible odds will inspire you to realize that change is always possible.
May You Live in Peace, שלום and سلام,
Penny S. Tee
