Palestinian doctor Izzeldin Abuelaish gives a heartfelt message of forgiveness, tolerance, and empowerment. The suffering in this world, he says, is manmade, and each person has the ability to speak out and challenge it. Abuelaish reveals that, after losing three daughters and one niece to an Israeli tank shell, he could easily have become a hateful person.But he realized the destruction that hate always brings, calling it “apoison, a disease, a fire that eats the one who carries it.” Abuelaish explains that he turned his grief into something positive and founded the organization daughters for Life, so that other girls in the Middle East can achieve the dreams of his daughters.
