Ulfat Khaider is the fascinating star of the video below on the subject of co-existence in Israel in general and Haifa in particular.

She has reached high peaks not only as a mountain climber, extreme sportswoman and volleyball player (she played for the Israeli national team), but as a remarkable woman striving for peace.

Ulfat is a project manager at Beit Hagefen, a Jewish-Arab cultural center in Haifa. Self-defined as a person searching for peace with herself and with others, she promotes projects that bring Jewish and Arab students closer together. Ulfat uses extreme sports, mountain climbing and nature programs to install positive values in young Israelis.

This is the real Israel and certainly the real Haifa. Click on video to hear her views at:
