Something not many people know about me
I contribute to the community by giving lectures on family economy in the Arab society, because I see it as an important focal point of care.
I hope they will not spoil Israel for us. I travel around the world and am always happy to come back to Israel, so I don’t want racism here and I want my children to feel equal.
