Azar Ajaj – Israeli Palestinian Christian

“In times where the voice of extremism is getting louder, and the political tension in the country is elevating, in times where people are losing any hope for peace, I found it a great privilege to join my voice with others in this great and important film “Peacemakers: Crossing the Divide.”
