Once a jailer

""I realised the cause that made these men go to prison was also my cause," Zeidan said. "We are part of the Palestinian tragedy." After a year of locking up Arab prisoners, he quit the service, finished his law degree and became a defence attorney. Months later, Zeidan returned to the same prison to visit Kantar. The Lebanese fighter, also a Druse, asked Zeidan to represent him. "That was a historic meeting for me. One day I was Samir Kantar's jailer. The next, I was his lawyer," Zeidan said.""
