I agreed with my Orwellian alter ego – it didn’t look too good – and worried that my explanation wasn’t much better. I was heading to Australia to support Project Rozana, a charity founded by Hadassah Australia (the local chapter of Hadassah, one of Israel’s preeminent hospitals in Jerusalem) to create a $10 million endowment devoted to training Palestinian doctors in the West Bank in Israel’s Hadassah hospital. With over 27 engagements scheduled I had been asked to place the cross-cultural, interfaith program within the context of Islamism as it battles for supremacy over the narrative with Islam.
