Ibtisam Erekat and Ruth Ebenstein met at a support group for Muslim, Jewish and Christian women with breast cancer. They became best friends despite both being devoutly religious and living on opposite sides of the green line. Their story is unusual and inspiring. If you want to learn more about them or have them speak at your event or school, you can find them at http://www.laughthroughbreastcancer.com.
When we are open to meeting people who we might not understand, who are different to us, who we don’t necessarily agree with politically but have so much in common with it cannot be ignored, then we are open to learning and listening, and our hearts can open where our heads may be shut off.
I hope you enjoy this interview, it’s important.
