Dr Abuelaish worked for many years in an Israeli hospital, becoming a
living symbol of the possibilities of Israeli-Palestinian peace.
During the 2008-2009 Israeli military assault onGaza, he sought to
give Israelis an alternative view on the conflict through live
broadcasts from his home in the Jabalia refugee camp. He gained
international prominence with a broadcast on Israeli television
immediately after his three daughters and a niece were killed in
shelling. Since then, ‘the Gaza Doctor’ has become one of the foremost
voices for peace in theMiddle East.
Izzeldin Abuelaish has received numerous awards for his work for
peace. His 2010 book “I shall not hate: A Gaza Doctor´s Journey on the
Road to Peace and Human Dignity” became an international bestseller
and has been translated into 15 languages. In 2010 Dr Abuelaish
founded Daughters for Life, providing academic scholarships to young
Middle Eastern women.
Please join us in this extraordinary event and listen to what this
Nobel Father has to say about his needless dramatic loss of 3
daughters and a niece.
