In 1978, Yulie Gerstel was wounded in a terrorist attack. A stewardess for the Israeli airline El Al, she was hijacked on her way to a flight in London.

Twenty-three years later she began questioning the causes of violence between Israelis and Palestinians. Then she decided to look for Fahad Mihyi, the man who almost killed her.

They became friends and she started to campaign for his release. But this has brought controversy. She talks to Sarah Zebeida about her friendship with Fahad and about reconciliation.
