Osama Abu Ayyash lives in a village on the West Bank, Breit Ummar. He is a college dropout who now drives a truck. Nine years ago, his wife lost her brothers, who had been accused of being terrorists and shot by Israeli security forces. As it turned out, that tragedy became a new beginning. Bereaved, Osama and his wife joined a modern-style activist group—one that promotes reconciliation. His goal is to humanize the conflict in Palestine through dialog with young Israelis.
