My Terrorist

This is the story of a girl who dreamt of being an officer in the IDF, who was a great patriot and who was shot and wounded in a 1978 terrorist attack on an El Al flight crew in London. Now a grown woman with daughters of her own, this mother does not allow them to leave their home for fear of Palestinian suicide attacks. Patriotism, to her, now means trying to reconcile with the terrorist who shot her 22 years earlier, who is still in a UK prison. In a climate of violence and terrorism, she observes the Middle East and sees that hatred is the only universal language. The pain and fear of the past shatter her world. Will she be able to write in support of her terrorist to the parole committee?
