When Miss Iraq met Miss Israel: "War is a tragedy that has no winners"


Mail and Guardian

We applaud the bravery of Sarah Idan and those like her who are prepared to put themselves at risk by challenging the poisonous narrative on Jews and Israel that is so tragically prevalent in so much Middle East discourse and so frequently deteriorates into antisemitism. We look forward to engaging with the former Miss Iraq, now a global peace activist, and hearing her experiences in working for peace & promoting human rights in the Middle East to youth & women's groups, the media, community leaders & NGOs.
