GEORGE SA'ADEH | Just Vision Skip to main content


One day George, his wife Najwa and their two daughters were driving home from the supermarket in Bethlehem. Israeli soldiers opened fire on their car, killing twelve-year-old Christine. George spent three days unconscious in intensive care with nine bullet wounds, while his wife buried Christine without him. Less than a year later, George joined hundreds of other Palestinian and Israeli families in the Bereaved Families Forum working together for reconciliation, and against violence and occupation. George says that as a Christian, he forgives the soldiers who killed his daughter, but that peace can only come when Israel ends the occupation of Palestinian territory. Read Just Vision's in-depth interview with George.
