Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish is a Palestinian-Canadian doctor; born and raised in the Jabalia Refugee Camp in the Gaza Strip. For years he has been active in promoting Israeli-Palestinian reconciliation and has received five Nobel Peace Prize nominations.
His three daughters were killed in the war in Gaza in 2009. He says another 21 members of his family were killed just 10 days ago when a missile struck the home they had crowded into.
As a doctor, Abuelaish says he has a duty of care and would not abandon patients at hospitals in Gaza if he were told to leave. He says the response to the Hamas attacks on Israel will only lead to prolonged misery.
“I fully believe that all of this will lead only to more bloodshed and animosity and hatred. More anger, more violence, and extremism,” Abuelaish said. “How can I convince them that we need to move forward? How to convince them to believe in humanity?”
Despite the pain that Abuelaish has experienced with the death of three daughters and seeing the conflict reignite, he believes there is a path to peace. Global’s Carolyn Kury de Castillo reports.
