Episode 36 – ‘Mai Shbeta, the Jewish-Israeli-Muslim-Palestinian Peace Activist’
She’s a sort of “peace incarnate”. A representation of what comes of abandoning hate and sectarianism for love and unity. Mai Shbeta is the daughter of a Jewish Mother and Muslim father. According to Jewish religious law, she’s a Jew. According to Islam, she’s a Muslim. However, often the members of both faiths choose to see her as an outside – they see the differences rather than the similarities.
This reality has driven Mai Shbeta to spend her time working diligently towards peace. She’s presented at the World Economic forum in Davos in 2011 and, recently completing a law degree at the Bar Ilan University, she has her eyes set on the advancement of Human Rights. Mai joins 2NJB today to talk about her life and career.
