Intimate interview with the Palestine Ambassador to South Africa

Pretoria, South Africa Politics June 1 @ 8:50pm

At the height of Israel's assault on Palestine, allies and those who represent Palestine shouted slogans to condemn the violence. Hannan Jarrar is Palestine ambassador to South Africa and she attended many protests and was often on TV doing her work as a diplomat. But she says she feels pain that no one cares to ask about. She grew up in Palestine, she went to school there and she has memories of places that no longer exist due to the violence. She can also draw parallels between South Africa and Palestine's endurance under "apartheid".
