Pregnant victim of stabbing undeterred, calls on Arabs to embrace peace

(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) Pregnant Israeli woman Michal Froman, who was stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist on Jan. 18, called on Arabs to embrace peace. “I may have cheated death, but I did not defeat terrorism,” she said on Thursday, Jan. 21, after being discharged from the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. Froman, 30, who is 18 weeks pregnant, sustained moderate wounds when she was attacked in Tekoa, a Jewish community in Judea and Samaria. Froman, the daughter-in-law of the late Rabbi Menachem Froman, a prominent advocate for coexistence, did not let the attack alter her views on her Arab neighbors. “The ambulance driver who drove me had more human compassion than many of the Jews know,” she said shortly after the attack, Ynet reported. “I call on Arabs like him to join hands and do something together to change things….I know this is hard, and it may take many years to achieve, but together we will emerge victorious; the faster we get this done, the better things are for everyone.”
