She took a direct hit in the stomach


Rahim Musa, a 23 year-old Palistinian law student once plotted to kill Israeli soldiers at a check point. She was 15 years old at the time.

Marina Cantacuzino of The Forgiveness Project writes in blog for the Huffington Post:

"The soldiers, believing her to be strapped with explosives, starting firing and she took a direct hit in her stomach. Riham ended up serving a ten-month prison sentence, spending some of that time in hospital having two operations. Her decision to support a non-violent approach grew out of this traumatic event. 'I believe violence breeds violence and there's no choice now for me other than to find another way,' she declares."
