I Shall Not Hate
The Atrium, Georgetown University, Education City 6pm, Tuesday 25th September 2012

Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish will be talking about his inspiring memoir I Shall Not Hate. The event will be moderated by Dr. Mohamed Zayany of Georgetown and will be in English. There will be a reception and book signing after the event at the Atrium. The event is co-sponsored by BQFP, Al Fakhoora and Georgetown.

On 16th January 2009, during the Israeli incursion into the Gaza Strip, Izzeldin Abuelaish witnessed the death of his three daughters by shell fire. His response to this tragedy, broadcast live on Israeli TV moments after the attack, won him humanitarian awards around the world including a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. Instead of seeking revenge or sinking into hatred, Izzeldin Abuelaish called for the people in the region to start talking to each other. Abuelaish is an inspirational speaker, a tireless peace campaigner and an advocate of woman’s rights in the Middle East.

A London University and Harvard-trained Palestinian doctor who was born and raised in the Jabalia refugee camp in the Gaza Strip and ‘who has devoted his life to medicine and reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians’ (New York Times), Abuelaish is an infertility specialist who lived in Gaza but worked in Israel. On the strip of land he calls home (where 1.5 million refugees are crammed into a few square miles) Abuelaish has been crossing the lines in the sand that divide Israelis and Palestinians for most of his life in his capacity as a doctor but also as a humanitarian who sees the need for improved health and education for women as the way forward in the Middle East.
