Sana Hassan

"Shortly after the 1973 Arab-Israeli war he had a chance meeting at Harvard University with Sana Hassan, the daughter of Egypt's ambassador to the United States at the time. That led to a series of conversations between them, published the following year as "Between Enemies: A Compassionate Dialogue Between an Israeli and an Arab."" Read that book by Sana Hassan. She is so boring and...not very bright. But this is something I like: why are none of Israeli admirers among the Arabs (they are a handful, really) ever smart? I mean, take Egyptian clownish playwright, `Ali Salim. In fact, Tahseen Bashir was so embarrassed by his wife's ramblings in favor of Israel that he divorced her, and he was the official spokesperson of Sadat.
