Roni Keidar, a British-born olah from southern Israel, has long campaigned for peace through the group Other Voice. Her close bond with Mimi and other Palestinians across the border has attracted deserved attention, as in this video report from Israel’s Channel 2. During the last war a Qassam destroyed part of Roni’s home in Netiv Ha’asara while Mimi witnessed daily IAF attacks on her neighbourhood. Yet their friendship endures, as does their devotion to ending the cycle of bloodshed.
