Sandra Solomon is the niece of Saher Habash, one of the founders of the ruling Palestinian party Fatah and a leader in the campaign of terror known as the Second Intifada.

Her pedigree notwithstanding, Sandra counts herself today as a proud Zionist. After moving to Canada, Sandra converted to Christianity. She then went so far as to tattoo the ancient Messianic Jewish seal on her arm, surrounded by the words Yeshua HaMashiach, in Hebrew.

Despite the danger in which such a bold statement places her, Sandra often visits her hometown of Ramallah. It was during one of these recent visits that Israel Today Editor Ryan Jones spoke to Sandra about the stand she has taken in a place where holding such positions requires more than mere courage.


Israel Today: How did you come to faith in Jesus?

Sandra Solomon: It was a soul-searching journey for God that led me to read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
