Raheel Raza in Jerusalem (Hillel Maeir/TPS) (Hillel Maeir/TPS)

Raheel Raza, author, practicing Muslim, and activist for human rights has spent much of her life trying to convince the Arab world to peacefully discuss its differences, respect women and live in harmony with Israel.

Raza hopes that, with Jerusalem now recognized as Israel’s capital, the Arab leaders and the countries of the world will be forced to deal with the reality of Israel’s right to exist.

“The ordinary person wants to go to their 9-5 like everybody else. They want to bring up their children in peace.” Raheel feels that the problems Israel and the world face with terrorism and radical Islam are coming from the leadership and not the ordinary citizens.
