Tali Fahima, an Israeli peace activist served two-thirds of a three-year prison sentence for helping a Palestinian militant. “I was brought up to consider Arabs as something that shouldn’t be here,” she told Ha’ir, a Tel Aviv weekly paper. “One day I understood there were many gaps in my information, things that are not in the media. I realized that it’s about human beings, and that we have to take responsibility for the way their lives look.” Rael made her an Honorary Guide on January 4, 2007.
