Residence: Ramallah, Palestine.
Work, Politics & “the other side”: I am a co-founder of the Al Quds Association for Democracy and Dialogue along with some other Palestinian peace activists. I was also one of the founders of Combatants for Peace in 2005. I was imprisoned in Israel as a freedom fighter at the age of 14 for 10 years; for this reason, achieving peace through sport projects for Palestinian and Israeli children is very important to me.
I was a member of the joint Palestinian/Israeli expedition to Antarctica (2003, 2004) with “Breaking the Ice” and am also very active in different kinds of youth and cultural activities that aim to reach nonviolence resolution for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
